ANNO 2205 BLASTS OFF INTO SPACE
After 5 million units sold worldwide, the strategy city-building series will be back on November 3rd
LOS ANGELES – June 15, 2015 – Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft® announced Anno® 2205, the sixth installment of the strategy city-building series. Anno 2205 is set in a futuristic world, and will allow players to leave earth venturing into outer space for the first time in the series. Currently in development at Blue Byte, a Ubisoft studio, the game will release worldwide on PC on November 3rd 2015.
In Anno 2205 players will join mankind’s next step into the future, with the promise of building a better tomorrow by expanding into space. Players must develop rich metropolises on Earth that are capable of launching missions to the moon as they race to establish production colonies on the lunar surface. By mining the Moon’s resources to send back down to Earth, Anno 2205 players will receive the benefits of technological advancements and the tools to help expand their cities and transform them into thriving metropolises.
The new Anno 2205 Engine paves the way for players to build cities on islands five times the size of those in previous Anno games. It also allows for a high level of graphical detail in the game, so players can immerse themselves in futuristic cities that come to life with flying cars, more than a million thriving citizens, churning factories, and grinding mines. Gameplay uses a revolutionary session mode that lets players control several sessions on Earth and on the Moon simultaneously, and connects multiple regions via different sessions.
“We’re proud to take players beyond the realms of planet earth with the biggest Anno game ever,” said Benedikt Grindel, studio manager at Blue Byte. “The development team has been working hard to ensure we are integrating fresh and innovative new content, whilst remaining faithful to the roots of the Anno franchise.”
Anno 2205 will be available in three versions: the Standard Edition which includes the full game experience, and the Gold Edition, which extends the experience with additional content.
Starting now, fans can pre-order any version of the game to gain guaranteed access to the closed beta phase ahead of launch. Additional details regarding the closed beta will be announced in the future.
@AndreasZ94: did the people that went missing come back? I'm missing molly, Jack, Abigale and Sadie. (44 minutes ago)
My goty list would be 1)rdr2, 2) GOW, 3)detroit, 4)spiderman. Great year but i definitely want more linear games now, tlou2 better deliver (5 Hours ago)
It's my goty for sure because it's my kind of game but i can see how a lot of people wouldn't like it as much as i did. (5 Hours ago)
My overall feelings about rdr2, there were quite a few issues i had with it but so many incredible and unique moments that overshadowed the negatives. I did get that shitty missing people bug btw (5 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Playing ac odyssey now and its on the opposite side of the spectrum. Very responsive but mediocre and weightless animations. Games like U4, horizon,gow have a good balance (5 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: The movement controls are definitely less responsive than most games but thank god it's much better than current gen gta v input lag. Aiming can be much improved with some setting tweaks (5 Hours ago)
@b0vril: Yeah you still have a lot more to go (5 Hours ago)
