Future Wars: Anno 2070 Gets Militant

By Adam Smith on October 6th, 2011.

Under the sea, is where I'll be, no talkin' 'bout the rain no more
Anno 2070 is a vision of what cities will be like when I’m either dead or an incredibly doddery old chap with a cybernetic toupee, and I’ve been pleased by the promise of its glistening underwater cities. Despite the terrible lack of resources facing our fragile globe, I’d quite enjoy retiring to one of those sea-bubbles. But, of course, someone had to go and spoil my future by bringing war into it. This newest trailer for the city-builder sim shows the military of the future, all sleek submarines, whirligig rocket-crafts and submersible death-platforms.

Prosperity & Cool Sci-Fi Tech: Anno 2070

By Lewie Procter on September 16th, 2011.

Half of these building are used for storing DRM servers.
The surprise futuristic entry in the Anno citybuilding series – Anno 2070 – has got a new video, showing off 3 minutes of mostly game footage. I hope you don’t think I’m crazy when I say I’m picking up a vague (very vague) Alpha Centauri vibe from this trailer. Sure, there’s no mind worms or nerve-staples on display, but it’s still pushing some of the same buttons. Read the rest of this entry »

Anno 2070 Trailer Shows Off Underwater City

By Jim Rossignol on August 22nd, 2011.


We were pretty gosh-darned excited when we learned that excellent trade and building series Anno was going to continue its exploits in the near future, but the glimpses of futuristic island cities were only half of it: the full game of Anno 2070 will contain underwater colonies, too. This game is all about painting a portrait of a (frankly fairly likely) near-future of scarce resources and adaptable strategies towards surviving in a changed world. You’ll be asked to choose between “industrial power” and “renewable energy” routes, and deal with the trade-offs that each of them are forced to make.

No precise release date for this as yet, as Ubisoft are still quoting “Winter”. I’m hoping to find out a bit more soon, as it’s the Ubisoft game I’m most interested in right now.

Future Shock: First Anno 2070 Trailer

By Quintin Smith on April 14th, 2011.

The first trailer’s arrived for Anno 2070, the futuristic reimagining of the city-building strategy series which previously covered the years of 1701, 1602, 1503 and 1404, making 2070 an excellently mad choice. The below footage is pretty exciting- it seems we’ll have the choice of making either a sustainable city that operates in harmony with its environment (with what looks like Apple doing the architecture), or a dark, Blade Runner-looking city that extinguishes all natural resources. Take a look.

New Anno – Not When You Were Expecting

By John Walker on April 4th, 2011.

This isn't full of horses!

So guess which year the next Anno game’s going to be in. The strategy/simulation series began in 1602, jumped ahead to 1701, then went all the way back to 1404. So where next for the city-building RTS? Of course it’s 2070.
