Ubisoft’s city builder franchise Anno is getting a followup in the form of Anno 2205. A cinematic trailer was shown first featuring a a futuristic spaceship launching from Earth and flying through space. The ship lands on the moon and the resource harvest begins.
That trailer was followed by a “gameplay” trailer, which looked to be just in-engine vistas, didn’t show anything in terms of the user interface. It did show beautiful locales and impressive tech.
The official website has this to say regarding gameplay features:
The beloved city-builder takes off into space!
