  1. It's also happening to Anno 2070, but the devs at least are going to see if they can update the it and get it back. Still not completely clear what will happen when the online is turned off but I seem to recall the online was quite integrated into the game, time to reinstall then wait and see.

    Hello Anno Community,

     

    Today we are informing you that  Ubisoft has decided to decommission online services for some older games on September 1st, including Anno 2070. You can find the full list of all impacted games here. And, as you know, Anno 2070 has several features tied to its online services.

     

    That said, after an initial investigation, we have decided to dedicate some of our development resources to work on upgrading Anno 2070’s aged online services infrastructure to a new system, so that these features can continue to be used past the mentioned date. However, we cannot yet guarantee that we’ll be able to successfully upgrade/replace the old services as we’d like to.

     

    Please note that until September 1st, the current online services will still be fully available. We will provide more detailed updates on the future of Anno 2070 in the coming weeks and months.

     

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Some more context: Anno 2070 will be unavailable for purchase until we have successfully updated the game. We're making good progress, but as quoted above, we can't guarantee success yet since it means updating and replacing a lot of old services, jumping 11 years into the future for a game released in 2011. Not something you do in a week.

    Also, no, there are no plans for a remaster (or History Edition, if we wanted to stick to our terminology) for Anno 2070 despite your cynicism.

    Cheers,
    Thorlof, Community Developer for Anno


    PS: It's Ubisoft Mainz, not Blue Byte ;)

    Then on one cycle I seemed to just get a bit lucky with drops, and found the blade weapon, the house key, then got to the boss and was within a whisker of beating him. So - I guess my question is, did I improve, or was it purely because the game decided to help me out a bit more with a lucky run? 🤔

     

    I had a run like that where after 8hrs of failing to beat the first boss it felt like the game was taking pity on me and saying if you don't do it now you never will. So I got to the boss with a great weapon, large and full health bar and a few healing consumables feeling great about it, dropped down and the bugger didn't spawn. I was really starting wonder if I'd made a mistake getting Returnal then. Took me another hour to finally beat it, but then I went and beat biome 2 on my first run, makes no sense.

     

    Glad I was stubborn and persisted though as I absolutely love it, should have known my enjoyment of anything Housemarque would be greater than my aversion to the mention of roguelike. Might have to go back to it this weekend and carry on up the tower.
