This is the fifth game in a series of Anno games.

The game genre remains unchanged - this is a real-time strategy with a variety of elements from other genres included in it: from the city construction and management simulator to submarine battles.

Time, situation, character

The game takes place in 2070, when the ecological situation in the world has become so serious that it cannot be completely ignored and the attitude to the environment becomes a key point in the development of corporations, on whose activity the well-being of humanity is based.

The game has implemented some of the gloomiest predictions about global warming: the world ocean level has risen so much that the continents have gone under water, and people have only to swim between the remaining islets on huge floating ark cities.

You control the captain of such an ark - and this means that you will have to explore, discover and colonize islands, build trade routes, build cities, meet the needs of the population, mine and mine food, build all kinds of enterprises, mines and fleets.


The entire Anno series is characterized by a general scheme - the player has to develop unpopulated but resource-rich territories, adjusting their economies, and then move on in search of new undeveloped territories.

In the Anno 2070 there is the same scheme, but its concrete implementation this time focuses on maintaining the ecological balance during colonization.

Various approaches to this problem embody the main actors in the game:
- the classic industrial tycoons from the Global Trust Corporation - rely on coal and nuclear power plants
- the environmentally-minded governing bodies of the Eden Initiative Corporation - these people rely more on renewable energy sources, wind energy or falling water.

The magnates, if you go their way, provide a more rapid development, but the population is dissatisfied with the deterioration of living conditions.

Environmentalists are developing more slowly, but the situation becomes softer.

But not everything is so primitive - both the magnates and the environmentalists have no ready answers to all the questions. Environmentalists also have to deal with environmental pollution, and the magnates, if they wish, can build waste treatment plants and make their strategies more acceptable.

In addition, the game has a third force - scientists who can significantly change the balance of forces with their technologies.

It is technologies, a powerful factor that can change a lot, became the second significant difference in the game setting after the need to preserve the ecological balance during colonization.

In addition to these three main factions, there are many other actors in the game: pirates, free traders, mercenaries, an oil baron named Sukhov, a Japanese oceanographer and others. You can interact with all of them - trade, negotiate, ask for help, carry out their tasks, receiving scarce licenses for the purchase of technologies as a reward.


Multiplayer mode allows you to bring into the game a lot of interaction in social networks. Players can form alliances, choose each other in the Senate, and then vote in the Senate for certain laws.

Anno 2070 reviews and comments

After Reading so many negative Reviews, I was visibly unsettled at first about whether to really get the Game. After some Hesitation, I decided to do so and, contrary to Expectations, had virtually no Problems. Maybe Lay down to the Process of how I installed the Game and entered the Keys. Here briefly my Procedure, with which I had no Problems:-bought + Download started-meanwhile Uplay started, updated And entered the Key before the Download expired-DL finished, game started, the Autopatcher re-entered the Key-game Started, Profile picture + Name chosen, Key re-entered and game restarted (for DLCs)-Let Autopatchers go through again, Game started and rellatively easily kicked off Intermediate in it came from time to time "Error:-2." KA what they have to mean, I was still able to play quite normally. A Quick to Multiplayer-if I went straight to the Multiplayer At the betting Meetings, there was an Error and it loaded up to Infinity. But I was able to Remedy this by simply going on "free Game" and clicking "Open As a Multiplayer." This allowed me to invite a Friend from the List and play it right off. To the Game itself I do not need to say anything that the lonely Tip is already described in detail here of the opener. Therefore, against the deterrent Reviews regarding the start problems, a solid Buy recommendation. PS: With a Friend with whom I bought this directly together, it also worked flawlessly.

Many Anno Fans have torn their Mouth over this Title, too much future, too much Sience Fiction in the old Style of Predecessors. Far from it, the Title fits. Each Week or Month, new Orders come for new Titles, Interactive Elections among the 3 Factions with 3 Advantages each that can affect the Flow of The game. Does it Sound like nothing? The Title has it in it, just the Interactive Component. Singleplayer is appealing and has a pleasant Learning Curve, even Newcomers would cope. It always takes time until you get to know everything, you don't have to hone It over at the Beginning. The general Endless game also exists and you can get some Sensitivity there for the whole Production Stages Who the Saying "mistakes will make you wise, You never make enough" but be too high or daring, who prefers to take first with the WIKI http://anno2070.wikia.com/wiki/Anno_2070_Wiki What I would like to mention at this Point Is the Multiplayer, who can be very fun and demanding with the right Players and a TS ³. Thumbs up for it! Buy recommendation from me? Yes, the Game is not only something for Hard-boiled Fans of the Anno series, but also something for Gamers who are looking for a very wide-ranging Strategy game with Multiplayer and not just War turmoil. When Asked if you have to own ALL DLC "s? No! Only the one who starts the Patient in The Multiplayer should make sure that everyone has certain Things accordingly. So without Deep-sea DLC, it gets a bit complicated, but it's doable. The Rest of the DLC "s is just optical in nature anyway. Buy the Game when it's On offer and take the Deep Sea DLC with you, it's cheaper than a Cinema Visit with 2x salted Popcorn 2x Coke and the seats in the Ranks.
