Shortly after hitting sequel city with FarmVille 2, the struggling social games company goes to town on a CityVille remake.
The social game creator releases a beta version of CityVille 2, with promises of 3D graphics and the ability to craft new items.
Will CityVille boost engagement on Google's new social-gaming platform?
The free game is available now in Apple's App Store and the Google Play marketplace.
The company will trade under the "KING" ticker when it goes public on the New York Stock Exchange.
With more than 97 million players, Zynga's CityVille Facebook game is even more of a phenomenon than its predecessor FarmVille -- and without a lost cow in sight. A new iPhone app aims to help.
Game maker partners with BitPay to offer the cryptocurrency as a payment option for virtual goods.
Zynga's CityVille has performed exceptionally well since its launch last month. The game now has over 100 million active users on Facebook, easily eclipsing former favorite FarmVille.
Game maker had accused a former executive of taking confidential game designs to a rival last year.
Creator of OMGPOP's Draw Something is yet another member of Zynga's executive team to step out the door.
