The Trial Version allows players to play Cities XL for 7 days without an Activation Key. It will be available as:
- part of the boxed version of Cities XL;
- DVD-ROM included in SVM (French) since the 22nd of October;
- DVD-ROM included in Ordinateur Individuel (French) since the 27th of October;
- a download.
It appears to have less limitations than the Demo which was available in September.
