Anno 2070 debut trailer gets divisive

By Brenna Hillier, Thursday, 14 April 2011 03:15 GMT

Ubisoft has taken a holiday from live action motion control trailers to send over one with core appeal: PC-exclusive city building sim Anno 2070.

Announced last week, Anno 2070 is a collaboration between Anno series developer Related Designs and Blue Byte, the team behind The Settlers.

It’s the first game in the series to take place in the future, as opposed to the MIddle Ages, and focuses on two major developmental paths.

Due in the fourth quarter, Anno 2070 combines real time strategy with city building simulation, and as you’ll see, is quite pretty.

Thanks, Erthazus.
