Thank you for a fantastic gamescom 2016!


Thanks to all Anno fans, that came visiting us in the Ubisoft Lounge in hall 6.1. There was a lot of information about the evolution of Anno 2205 and great discussions about the game itself and the 5 content updates. On Sunday we had the largest amount of visitors and you asked us the most exciting questions on that final day.
So as the grand finale we had the longest discussion session.

Now to everyone who was not able to come to the gamescom: Anno 2205 is not finished yet!
Unfortunately, you will have to wait a little bit longer for detailed information about the upcoming content. ;)

Some impressions for you:

About This Game

Anno 2205™ – the beloved city builder takes off into space!

In Anno 2205™, you join humankind‘s next step into the future with the promise to build a better tomorrow. You conquer Earth, establishing rich, bustling cities and grand industrial complexes, but to secure the prosperity of your people, you must travel into space.

A scientific breakthrough in fusion energy promises to revolutionise all aspects of society. The necessary isotope, helium-3, can only be found in harvestable quantities on the Moon. Venture into space and settle on the Moon in the thrilling race for resource and power.

Anno’s masterful economic gameplay is back and taking strategic city-building simulation to new heights, launching into space!

THE ACCLAIMED CITY BUILDER REACHES FOR THE STARS
Anno 2205™, the sixth title in the award-winning city-building franchise, expands into space. Colonise continents on Earth, establish bases on the Moon, and mine the Moon’s resources to transform your cities into thriving metropolises.

UNLIMITED CITY BUILDING
Thousands of hours of accessible and challenging gameplay let you go beyond the story and ultimately grow monumental cities with thousands of buildings. You control your growing corporation simultaneously on multiple locations on Earth and the Moon. Gameplay brings a revolutionary session mode that lets you play on multiple islands, instantaneously connecting different regions. Anno 2205™ is the biggest in the series, offering unlimited replay value on islands five times bigger than in previous games.

INDULGENT GRAPHICS BRING YOUR CITY TO LIFE
The new game engine offers a true sense of grandeur and brings an unprecedented level of detail and immersion.

finshed the game in under 20 hours. Combat was an unavoidable chore in order to progress and a grind to get the special minerals to build with. No replayability like in anno 2070.

I will recommend this game for building strategy as it makes you think about placement for resource generating buildings to maximize space. The storyline is solid. HOWEVER, this game has the worst battle AI I have ever seen. Clicking to heal units or move at crucial times sometimes does not work. You click to heal, nothing happens and 3 ships are destroyed 40 minutes into a mission. Overall I will not rcommend the game unless it goes on sale simply based on the fact that UBI is a huge company and has the money and talent to make the game smoother.

The game is good for the most part, gameplay is great and you have to think on your feet, UI may need to be expanded so it grows with the monitor, and Production is a bit unbalanced with the needs I need like 5 farms for meat by the time I get to the moon.

weakest anno game ever, dont get me wrong this game is so beatiful its amazing, but gameplay wise it lacks depth, combat is dull, resource managment is almost non excistant and the worst part of the game is the combat. the game would actually be better without it, its just a dull and tedious mini game that doesnt have anything to do with anything that actually matters. oh and lets not forget the no multiplayer part. i mean come'on were in 2016 and pretty much everyone used to play anno games to play them as multiplayer, back in the days we used to have lan's playing these games

I love this game. I've never written a review before so forgive me if I keep this brief. I saw some hating on the site and I wanted to step up by writing this review. For me I enjoy this game a lot. I've played the previous two Anno titles and IMO this is the best of the three hands down. I love the different sectors, the challenge, the realtime aspect is great. I cannot think of any other ways to improve the game. That being said, I seem to be unaware of some of the bugs that others are reporting. I don't have them.

I do see that some people would like co-op. This simply isn't in the game at the moment. So if you want co-op maybe this isn't for you. Single player, this is my favorite simulation game and I keep coming back to it time and time again. I definately encourage you to check it out.

Graphicswise the game looks really good. It plays nicely but lacks a lot of the usual anno feeling.
A lot of the new changes arent bad like multiple sectors and combat in a different zone, yet i feel a bit disappointed that i need to do so much less to keep my empire running. And the only way to crush a competitor is by just buying shares. The lack of combat on islands and at sea is disappointing.
Overall its not a bad game just doesnt feel like Anno, rather like another citybuilder.

After years of avoiding this purchase because of the never ending negative reviews I decided to pick it up on sale. And all I can say is... I don't understand what all the hate is about.

I've been playing the Anno series for years starting way back on my Dell Dimension desktop more than 10 years ago. Yes, Anno 2205 is quite different compared to the previous games but I have to admit its a bit of breath of fresh air as the previous games felt more like reskinned versions of themselves with new graphics and not much else.

Anno 2205 has some annoying aspects, mainly the battles being completely separate from the economic parts of the game but overall I'd say this purchase was well worth the $20 or $25 I dropped on it (can't remember which it was now as this was only one of more than a dozen games I picked up in the last two weeks).

As far as DLC goes, I have a bit of a unique insight as I spent two years running an Indie game company and I know first hand how some gamers expect the world for free.

If companies are going to continue producing DLC gamers have to be willing to pay a fair price for it, then it's a win/win.

+ Good for new Anno player
+ Good classic Anno play with some changes (details below)

- price ->buy on sale 40+ bucks maybe a little to much
- Small Loading screen while switching regions

> Catasprophe can be annoying
> 20-30 Gameplay (time to get 150K Investors) (ofc you can play longer to get the ultimate City)

changes to other Anno games
->'special resources' get by fighting mission or map quest (needed for more efficient building).
->Different map design. You have 3-10 maps/regions with 3 building/production Variants (mediteran,arcit,moon).
->maybe a little more casual then other anno games.

yes, there are some flaws that effect the game itself. but despite the imprefections, its an overall good game. (6.5/10)
Pros: very little bugs; great graphics; average storyline; good economy
Cons: little interaction; little replay value; horrible combat system; i felt i wasn't completely in control of my game.

I'm a big Anno fan, and I put off getting 2205 for quite a while after reading all the negative reviews. I finally picked it up and I'm glad I did. It is a major departure from the way other Anno games work, but I find that it's still quite fun and retains just enough Anno feel to be something familiar yet new. I would like to have a "sandbox" mode, but I don't miss it as much as I thought I would. Working towards building a colony on the moon has been quite enjoyable (many hours in and I'm still not on the moon!).
A lot of the micro-management of trade routes and so forth has been modified in such a way to make it easier which I appreciate. Often in other Anno games, I got annoyed trying to figure out the best logistics strategy. So far in 2205, the logistic strategy element is still there, but it hasn't been as micro-managy.
I even like the way they do combat now. It's sort of a separate "mini-game" that you can choose to participate in (or ignore). If you participate, it's mostly just moving around blowing stuff up and collecting resources for use in the main game. I enjoy a click-boom game from time to time, so it's a nice mental distraction and doesn't feel like a necessary interruption to the main strategy game.
Overall, I'm glad I'm playing it now.
