Anno 2070 Deep Ocean Announced


Ubisoft has announced Anno 2070 Deep Ocean, an new add-on for its popular real-time strategy game from BlueByte and Related Designs.

Quote:
Today, Ubisoft announced Anno 2070 Deep Ocean, the add-on for the acclaimed real-time strategy game, which was released at the end of 2011 for PCs. Anno 2070 Deep Ocean will take the signature gameplay mechanics of Anno 2070 deeper underwater this Autumn 2012.

Key features of ANNO 2070 Deep Ocean:

New civilization level

For the first time in the history of the Anno series an add-on brings a new civilization level: the Tech faction is expanded by the Genius population class.

A deeper game experience

The new population class grants access to the new Tech Monument, new corresponding production chains and consumption goods. Furthermore this new class features new vehicles and new items allowing players to develop industries, strengthen economies and exploit new resources.

Additional content and challenges

Players will also be able to:
  • Acquire enemy territories without using military force through the ?Hostile Takeover? feature
  • Resolve energy problems by building the new underwater geothermal power plant
  • Optimize energy supply through ?Energy transfer? between islands
  • Face a new dangerous disaster: The Tsunami
  • Unlock new rewards for each faction?s career ladder
  • Take advantage of new underwater trading routes
  • Experience over 150 new challenging quests
  • Unlock over 30 new achievements
  • Access to player comparison via new leaderboards
For more information on Anno 2070, please visit http://anno.ubi.com
I hope they release a complete edition of some sorts. Anno 2070 has been taunting me from my Steam wishlist for a while now.

I gave this game a go this weekend and was pretty impressed. Its a lot of fun- but I feel like it needs to be just a touch more open ended.

It has not changed much lately, but at least it's not "always on" anymore.

When I saw the screenshot, the first thing I thought of was that old Submarine Titans RTS.

I'd love to give it a try but DRM above and beyond Steam seems wholly unnecessary and by principle I can't bring myself to accept it.

Yep that's what has kept me away from it despite Shizuru's praise.

I do give Ubi credit for the way they integrated online play into a solitary gaming experience.

The meta-game aspects of voting on perks and combined unlocking of additional content makes you (or me, anyway) really want to be connected while playing the game.

Played the demo at the weekend, like MrBrick said, it seemed kinda linear compared to the older Anno games.
