Today at 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.
Players will join mankind’s next step into the future, by building 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.
Anno 2205 will be available on November 3rd for PC in: 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.
