Games Similar to Anno 2070
Hi,

this game is like some sort of a combination of Settlers (2), Simcity and Supreme Commander. Are there games similar to Anno 2070, other than those three I mentioned?

Thanks

PS. Anno 2070 is a great game, btw. I like it a lot

Here on Steam:

Without future settings, but similar in gameplay and mechanics:

Settlers 7
Tropico 3 & 4

or Anno 1404 (without Steam)

The Cities XL games are sililar-ish.

If you want city building games you'll need to look back to the year 2000, oooooooooooooo.

Where we had games like Ceasar 3, Pharoh and Queen of the Nile, Zeus the master of Olympus and my favourite Emperor Rise of the Middle Kingdoms.

While older, i still play these games a lot. Still some of my favorite city bulding games.

The closest thing I have in my library to this game is probably Civ, Gal Civ, Sins of a Solar Empire or Endfless Space. Friends who own Tropico say it's fairly similar. Cities XL is probably similar but since it had really terrible player reviews the last time I checked none of my friends or I have tried it.

I haven't played this game much yet but it's very much like an old game: 1701 A.D.

The setting and graphics are completely different but the gameplay structure is identical: like placing houses around community centres with new consturction options becoming available after a certain population size; and the way goods are stored in the warehouse and sold to visiting merchants; and tons more.

I'm sure there's some connection between the two games. If you can still get 1701 A.D. it would probably make a good tutorial for this game - something Anno sorely needs.

Anno 1701 was released in the US as 1701 A.D. (probably has to do with what people are familiar with in countries)

So the complete game series is:

Anno 1602 (also released as 1602 A.D.)
Anno 1503 (also released as 1503 A.D.)
Anno 1701 (also released as 1701 A.D.)
Anno 1404 (also released as Dawn of Discovery)
and now Anno 2070

The "joke" for the name of 2070, as I read somewhere on the net is that it is 666 years after Anno 1404.

1602 and 1503 were developed by Max Design and co-developed and published by Sunflower. In 2004 Max Design ceased to exist and sold the property to Sunflower.
1701 was developed by Related Design and published by Sunflower
1404 was (like 2070) developed by Related Design and published by Blue Byte Software after UBISoft aquired Sunflower in 2007


I didn't list the Wii and Nintendo DS games as... eh... not PC games ;)

And the second "joke" in every name (date) is the sum of every digit 9! :-)
