Anno 2070 came out on Friday. Did you see? It’s Anno, but in the future! Although I’m now so used to having ridiculous year names from science fiction like “2011” that I can no longer register “2070” as sounding that far away. Heck, it’s reasonably likely I could live until 2070. I think futuristic sounding things now require at least a “2200” century, if not ideally the third millennium. Please take note. Anyhow, the Anno launch brought with it an Anno launch trailer, which is below. And I believe one of our number is currently playing the game in order to let you know what you should think about it.
I’ll tell me what though – if this is what 2070 looks like, I’ll be bloody furious that I’m 92 and far too old to properly enjoy the flying cars. I’ll be the one flying at 13mph in rush hour, swerving into the lane above.
As it’s Ubisoft, you’ll want to know the DRM. It’s a one-time online activation, then can be played offline after that.
