Ubisoft have released a demo for Anno 2070:
Anno 2070 is an upcoming video game with city-building and real-time strategy gameplay elements. It is set in the year 2070. Global warming has melted the Arctic ice cap, which has raised the global sea level so high that what used to be mountains are all that remains of land.

The game has two factions: Ecos and Tycoons. Ecos are environmental and build sustainable cities but are inefficient and slow to expand. Tycoons are industrious and expand quickly but have problems with pollution and dwindling resources.
Download it now locally from AusGamers. More info is available on our game page! promoted/edited forum item





Buy now from Green Man Gaming for only GBP£19.99 (USD$34.95 on Steam)!

Nah, wasn't a leak trog. if you check Ubi's email the "publish time" is actually the timestamp of the email, not sure why they bothered to mention it -- maybe lost in translation. Anyway, here's our local download mirror:

Just played the first mission. Would like to try a sandbox map. Not a huge fan of small, pointless missions

My thoughts exactly, that aside though it seems ok.

It's strangely satisfying in a SIM CITY kind of way... Liking both the gameplay concept and aesthetic deisgn of the game, despite some pretty basic missions in the demo... Will keep an eye on this one!

Finally got around to installing this but the graphics seem all weird - everything has a weird white glow effect applied in it. Anyone else seen this?

edit: like this:



Tried changing video settings randomly but to no avail. Maybe video drivers out of date? Haven't updated for a while.

Batman, Skyrim, BF3, MW3 all released within a short period of time... bad time for Anno 2070 to come out!

Trog, mine looks amazing. I think you might have one of the effect options up too high so it's adding some weird filter over the top.

As far as the game goes ... I've only just loaded up a campaign but wow, the presentation is stunning, the music is so scenic ... if this game sucks I'm still going to play a bit just for the atmosphere!

was kinda looking forward to playing this, and the game freezes out just at the ark unfolds

Finished the demo. A bit short unfortunately so I don't really feel like I got enough of a taste, but what I saw seemed pretty good (for a single player game anyway)

Bought this the morning of release on Steam for $54 (Deluxe Version) and now it's jumped to $89.99. Glad I got it when I did although due to some sort of bug the game wasn't playable if you purchased it through Steam until the next day.
