View Full Version : What about the map ?

Title speaks. What do we know so far ?

Npcs, back to basics.... Will we have only 1 map ? Thats what makes Anno game right ? However, I liked 2205 for the differents lands we had.
And like I said in another place, 1 of the 11 maps was almost like what we had in the entire 1404.

So what can we expect ? The size choice ? But which size ? More than 1 map ?

Im not afraid about a big, big map, if I have different stuff to do, I'll be happy. But what do you expect ? What do you prefer ?

I personally think a random map generator, like in all the anno games prior to 2205, is a must for replayability. The random map, combined with random NPC placement and potentially neutral powers, can offer a unique challenge, that you just can't get with a static map, like in 2205. Personally I feel that the lack of a random map is one of the reasons I have not played 2205 as much, that and the "mountain sites" and "coastal sites" meant that there wasn't enough of a challenge when obtaining raw materials.

Random map generator has been confirmed! :)

1800 looks more and more like a direct sequel to 2070.

(lets pretend 2205 never happened)
