New Anno? Can’t wait!

I saw via RPS yesterday, there’s a new Anno game on the way and it’s set in the future of 2070 instead of the past. There’s not too much detail yet. Going to the Anno page and clicking on the game’s link gives a page cannot be found error which is disappointing but the kind of sloppiness I’ve come to expect from Ubisoft.¬†Publisher concerns aside, I love this series of city building games and I’m looking forward to a modern/future setting.

    I’m completely addicted to Anno 1404 (Dawn of Discovery). I have a few friends I play with and we’ve had some truly epic games that have lasted numerous long sessions. Fantastic stuff, a game that’s so well crafted.

    That said, there are still some holes (like not being able to truly defeat the corsairs) and I’d love to see them continue to refine their formula with new Anno games.

      I’ve never played the game multiplayer, but I can imagine it eating up a whole weekend easily. There are definitely some things the games doesn’t do well though. The corsairs, like you mentioned, can be a pain, and really the whole combat system is just not as well done as the economic and building parts.
