Ubisoft and Blue Byte have announced the city-management strategy title Anno will be soon available on ipad as ANNO: Build an Empire.
The game is developed in close collaboration with Mi’pu’mi Games, bringing the ANNO experience to another level. The franchise has been rebuilt from the ground up to be compatible with mobile gameplay, featuring a touchscreen interface that makes building cities easier than ever.
ANNO: Build an Empire is about handling more than 60 resources and 150 different buildings, each with their own special traits. While the production of wool is a fairly straight forward task, the creation of glass requires multiple manufacturing branches to produce the final goods. Start off with just a few peasants on your island and a simple production branch. Soon the first artisans, merchants and noblemen will come to your island. Build a big fleet, discover new islands and widen your realm step by step. Every island in the game is unique, and offers specific resources which you can plant and harvest
Social elements from previous ANNO titles will also be incorporated into ANNO: Build an Empire and players will have a chance to challenge friends and foes and invite them to take part in this stand-alone ANNO adventure.
ANNO: Build an Empire will be available on iPad 2 or higher and requires at least iOS6 and an internet connection to play.
