Manufacturer's Description

Requires an internet connection during installation and to access multiplayer features.

2070. Our world has changed. The seas' rising level has harmed the coastal cities and climate change has made large stretches of land inhospitable.

The latest in the award-winning strategy series, Anno 2070 offers a new world full of challenges, where you will need to master resources, diplomacy and trade in the most comprehensive economic management system seen yet in the Anno series.

Build your society of the future, colonize islands and create sprawling megacities with multitudes of buildings, vehicles and resources to manage. Engineer new production chains such as Robot Factories, Oil Refineries and Diamond Mines and trade with a variety of goods and commodities.

Key Features:

  • A New Era: Staying true to the roots of the Anno series, the near-future setting will bring numerous new gameplay mechanics, architectural breakthroughs, and all new challenges. Additionally, players will be able to build massive cities, the scope of which has never been seen in prior Anno games.
  • Become an architect of the future: Face the current world challenges to positively shape the world of tomorrow. Choose either an industrial and efficient course by joining the Tycoons or a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly direction by siding with the Ecos.
  • An evolving, dynamic world: Your decisions will have a direct impact on the environment, the climate, the architectural look of the world, and the needs of populations. Make your choices wisely.
  • Hidden depths and new resources: The depths of the sea are waiting to be explored, with new resources waiting to be discovered. Algae farms, tidal turbines and oil exploration are just a few of the exciting opportunities that discoveries will bring.
  • Multiple Game modes: Single player campaign: a story-driven single player mode with a deep variety of challenges. Single player “continuous mode”: the renowned endless game mode where the objective is to build the biggest civilization possible without time constraints. Multiplayer and Online features: Anno 2070 will include innovative online modes offering players brand new possibilities to get in touch with gamers all around the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best Anno title so far 4 Sep 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Anno series is highly acclaimed, and for good reason. They've consistently made outstanding economy based RTS games that balance detailed resource management and strategic gameplay with open-endedness and replay value. For those who are new to the Anno games, the basic idea is you start off as a sort of colonialist, with the aim to build a thriving civilization across a set of islands. Your civilizations start off with lower class citizens (workers or assistants in Anno 2070, depending on your faction) with a very limited set of needs that are fairly easily accomplished. However, once you've satisfied their needs, some of your citizens can "ascend" to higher levels which in turn consume increasingly complex products that you are responsible for creating. If you do, their tax income rises and you profit. If you don't, they riot and set fire to things. Your home island will only suffice to provide resources for the earliest stages, so you're quickly forced to expand to other islands, resulting in complex inter-island trading routes through fleets of ships that you can build. This is the traditional Anno recipe that has served the games well for many years.

In Anno 2070 (the first Anno title to be based in the future rather than the far past), the scenario is that spiraling global temperatures have resulted in mass floodings of the entire earth. For some reason, two corporations thus decided to set up huge floating research stations called "Arks" and set up colonies on now-fertile highlands that have been rendered into islands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game 23 Jan 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This reminds me of playing SETTLERS on the Amiga.
You build buildings that makes stuff that you need to build other buildings and units and on and on......
Lots of options
Graphics and sound is amazing.

I would have given 5 stars if not for the 10 minute headache I had getting logged on at first.
I had to find an email that I used to register Assasins Creed years ago, to find my username and then reset my password. Even then I kept getting a error message (game could not connect to server) and offline mode is not really offline mode because even then you have to log on! But for some reason it would let me log on from there, then now lets me log on from the first log on. What a ridiculus palava to play a game you have just paid good money for, especially since I waited until the game had been released for a couple of months before I purchased.

Also I hate having to provide my personal information, and creating online accounts. Why do so many pc game makers feel the need to harvest your personal information these days? Surely there is a better way to stop the pirates?

Game works perfectly now though and I have easily had my money's worth already. I feel sorry for the people who paid for this game and then could not play it.

Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Now Ubisoft are well know for having an Absolutely Awful DRM which is which ultimately fails, and this time is no different, with Anno you get a 3 Activation Limit, which again does nothing to the people it is intended to stop and instead just burdens the buyer, You are probably thinking "no big deal, other publishers do that". Well with this game something as simple as changing your graphics card will use up an activation.

Many people thought this was a bug, no company would seriously screw that customers over that much right?

Ubisoft responded with "the game is indeed restricted to 3 hardware changes and there simply is no way to bypass that."

I made the mistake of buying the game and supporting this awful company who seem to hate their customers oh so much, I highly recommend you do not buy this game, granted Ubisoft don't listen to hints and are more like a paranoid crack addict and will swear blindly that the reason the game did not sell is cause of pirates instead of them screwing their customers over with awful DRMbut still.

I was looking forward to Ubisofts release's this year and I was even having fun with some Anno 2070 although not as much as Anno 1404 until I realised that when I upgrade my computer this year it will use my last licence.... Seriously Ubi as a person who does generally like you games stop giving me reasons not to buy them, if your sales are in fact low it's cause would be customers are put off by the measures you go to to screw them over.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Long Load, but nothing to worry about. 14 Aug 2012
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've read some over zealous reviews, some ridiculously silly reviews and some good reviews about this game, so I'll take you through it step by step, ahem.

So you've just bought you Anno 2070 game. You unwrap and put it in your computer. Normal install screen comes up, takes a bit to unpack everything but eventually you get there and it's on your computer.

Now I come to one of the biggest points the nay Sayers have. You will spend a good 5-10 minutes with a patcher updating and patching the game, but so what? This is good, it shows this game, since released has constantly been updating, changing and improving. So grit you teeth, gather you patience and move on.

Now the game, from my experience, doesn't create a shortcut automatically. But if you go to your start button in windows it should be highlighted, if not go to all programs and games and hey presto it's there.

You've clicked on the game and you open a Ubisoft launcher, now you create a Uplay account if you don't have one, if you do just put in your details. Double click the game once your in and activate it. Done deal.

The game itself is challenging and fun, but you will have to play, sometimes fail and persevere to really get going on it. The graphics are pretty freaking good but can accommodate lower spec graphics cards. The ideas are good, the build is strong and consistent and the daily challenges of running your mini civilization are enthralling. Once you have got to grips with the econmoics of the game it is very fun.

There is no tutorial but frankly the starting levels, and the sometimes annoying but useful voice of the computer E.V.E, will guide you along your way and you should pick things up pretty quickly. If not I suggest replaying a level you have problems with.
