SAN FRANCISCO - August 2, 2012 - Today, Ubisoft® announced that Anno 2070™ Deep Ocean, an add-on for Anno 2070, will release on October 4 for $29.99.
With more than five million sales worldwide since its release, Anno is one of Ubisoft's best-selling franchises and is an award-winning build-strategy brand. Its latest iteration, Anno 2070, shifted to the future for the first time in the series, offering an island of new technologies and challenges for the player to manage, along with a deep economic system and dynamic game world.
The focus of Anno 2070 Deep Ocean is a new faction called the Techs. Thanks to the new Genius population class, the Techs are able to expand further into the deep ocean. By experimenting with a new energy source called the Geothermal Power Plant, the player will be able to build massive production facilities below the sea, and may even secure one of mankind's most important needs: a limitless energy supply! Energy transmitters allow for the transportation of energy between islands, and players can build an impressive new Tech Monument together with new buildings and decorations to make cities even more beautiful.
Anno 2070 Deep Ocean also includes more than 150 new and challenging quests, hostile natural disasters, and co-op features.
