Breaking News: Anno 2070 Trading Cards discovered in time capsule from the future!

S.A.A.T. scientists have been left scratching their heads after the unearthing of a mysterious object at a Global Trust mining site near Jorgensen Plateau.

The discovered metal capsule is emblazoned with an image of the Moon and the number “2205” - prompting speculation about its origin “from the future”, to quote Dr. Wallace Breen, administrator of the operation. Inside, a set of impressive paintings was found, depicting everyday life scenes and vehicles of the year 2070.

Message and purpose of this baffling find remain a mystery so far. We contacted S.A.A.T. director Dr. Salman Devi for comment and invite our readers to enjoy reproductions of these mysterious pictures we have prepared as Anno 2070 Trading Cards.

Play Ecos, build many ecobalance boosting buildings, enjoy amazing song (it's called Distant Shore, if you can't restrain yourself) while simultaneously gazing at lush landscapes and selling tea by the container shipload to the NPCs because your plantations are growing four times what you actually need.

(NOTE: Anno 2070 was released during the dark days of uPlay's always-on DRM. Some people have had terrible troubles with it, and others none whatsoever. In 70+ hours I have had no issues with uPlay, but I understand that others have. If always-on DRM is a dealbreaker for you, feel free to ignore this game and this review. Otherwise, read on.)

The Anno series made a name for itself with supply-chain-based building and beautiful historical cityscapes. 2070 took things in a new direction, at least aesthetically, setting your constructions in the near-ish future. Global warming has settled the debate over itself by flooding the entire planet, and you are tasked with helping humanity resettle on the few habitable islands left. It's an unusually somber game that manages both a striking beauty and extremely satisfying building.

Unlike your SimCities or Tropicos where money is your limiting factor, Anno 2070 challenges you to provide goods to your citizens to both build with and subsist off of. Every building requires building materials like concrete, steel, and tools before it can pop into existence. Your citizens likewise need quotas of food, beverage, luxury, and entertainment to expand their numbers. There is money, paid as taxes by your citizens and used as upkeep for your industries, but it's generally an afterthought once your initial settlement is built. Your main concern will be building supply chains in the right proportions to keep your cities growing.

The result of this balance is that you're building two kinds of settlements in parallel, residences and industries. The catch is that you're doing this on limited island space, and your industries can have dire effects on their surroundings. Islands have an eco-balance rating that can boost happiness and production if positive, and tank your agriculture and cause disasters if negative. Each island also has its own particular resources, so you'll almost never get by building on one island. There's a robust convoy and trading system for you to automate deliveries with, as well as fleets of charming ships to build and explore with. Get far enough in and you get submarines and the ability to build underwater industries, too.

There's a 12-mission story mode that serves as an extended tutorial for the game, along with another dozen scenarios, an infinite mode, rotating event missions, and multiplayer modes. For each of these you can choose one of two factions to start as, the filthy capitalist Global Trust or the crunchy hippy Eden Initiative. Both have very different needs and industries to fulfil them, which lead to very different play styles and looks to your cities. Late game progression unlocks a third faction of scientists to grow in parallel, and very late game you can even unlock the opposing faction to build as. You get an enormous amount of freedom in how you build, trade, and expand, which helps keep each map interesting as you progress.

On top of the faction and building options, there are NPCs to trade with, missions to complete for bonuses, upgrades to research, and military options to explore. It's a huge game with a lot to like, but not without a few stumbles. The aforementioned military options are actually pretty awkward and unfun to use, leaving conquest as the last option you want to explore. Research produces random results so it can take far too long to get the upgrades you want. And beyond the mechanics, the story and voice acting elements are half-♥♥♥♥♥ at best and add very little to the experience.

These are really minor quibbles about an otherwise spectacular game, though. The look and feel of Anno 2070 is second to none, with intensely-detailed buildings and landscapes that produce some of the most picturesque creations of any city builder. The challenges of aligning production chains is never too great but are still extremely gratifying to overcome. Spending a dozen hours on a single random map is not out of the question, resulting in a breathtaking sprawl of future cities, industrial hellscapes, and ecological paradises. Anno 2070 is easily one of the most engaging builders I've played, and its few faults are hardly enough to keep me from sinking dozens upon dozens of hours in it.

There was a time when the game was playable and all was well. Then i got a new computer and out of fear of me being someone else they disallow me from playing the game I purchased years ago. 1/10 Uplay is cancer.

Once you understand how the game's mechanics work, youre pretty much screwed up because this game will drain a lot of your free time.
Anno 2070 is complex and beautiful (it's graphics are good even for 2016's patterns) and the way that it envolves the sustentability matter on its core is awesome.
If you like strategy games (specially city builders) and/or the futuristic theme, you can not miss this one.

I have this game. I LOVE this game.

However, I cannot rate this positive at all.

UPlay may be a joke, but it is a sufferable joke. The real problem is much scarier than that.

----------
SolidShield.
----------

What is SolidShield?

SolidShield is a software DRM engine that was built for corporate applications, NOT computer games. In the business world, people only upgrade computers once every few years. By the time they upgrade a couple of times, the software is obsolete and has been superseded by a later version.

Many gamers are completely different. A lot of us format our machines at least once a year, sometimes more often than that. A lot of us change our hardware semi-regularly as well, particularly video cards, hard disk drives and memory.

This is a huge problem, you see, because all of these changes change the hardware fingerprint that SolidShield uses to 'protect' its software payload. It's akin to the Windows activation system with the very major difference that it it is extremely hyperactive, and very intrusive.

According to Ubisoft, who has said in the past that the PC gaming market is terrible, we are never allowed to change our hardware configurations. If we do, we are obligated to buy a new copy.

Ubisoft says piracy has caused them to require this ridiculous DRM system, which isn't suitable for games at all.

I counter that the existence of SolidShield in this product is causing people to prefer pirating this game to buying it. After all, if you pirate it, you'll actually be able to install it when you feel like playing it in two years' time.

I've never before seen a company that shows such a disdain for its customers. If it were up to me, I'd remove ALL DRM from Anno 2070, and give it away for free (or a lot less than its $60 price tag) as an apology to all of us for having to put up with this travesty.

Until TAGES SolidShield is COMPLETELY REMOVED from this product, I cannot see how anyone could possibly rate it positively.

Now, before I begin, I want to say that I applaud the studio who wrote this, this is one of the best games I've ever played. HOWEVER, I will never buy another game using Uplay. After playing this game for about a year I finally bought the expansion I was so excited about. Well, that was the biggest mistake I've ever made. Deep Ocean introduces an autopatcher proxy bug which I cannot fix without going out to some sketchy link on MediaFire to get a FUNCTIONAL autopatcher. That is, unless I go in and download the game through Uplay. Without the patch the game is registered as "Game modification detected" and has no connection to my login and there is no text on any of the menus, unplayable. Supposedly there has been a fix out there for Uplay-only users but I don't have the time or bandwidth to redownload the entire game. I just want to play the freaking thing.

Please go back to fingering your butt Ubisoft, it's all you ever do.

> Opens UPlay, loads game, makes me input Game Key
> Opens game, create account
> Game makes me activate it with Game Key, then it closes itself and starts downloading more of the game

Half an hour and still not near playing it.

Seriously Uplay.
