Jason Wilson:

Cities now have specialties, which work kinda like classes in an RPG. Katsarelis showed us a region where a casino city was not the only one dealing with crime–it had spilled out to affect its neighbors. Another city grapples with homelessness, and with skyrocketing coal prices, an “Occupy Thing,” as Katsarelis describes the protest, appears at City Hall. This protest, led by the plant’s shop foreman, is actually a mission. Build a coal mine and the protest goals away, providing jobs for the protestors and the homeless. You can specialize in other areas as well, such as becoming an industrial giant or a green city.
