Anno 2070

What is Anno 2070?

Anno 2070 is a video game with city-building and real-time strategy gameplay elements. The scenario 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 gameplay includes "World Events"; special missions offered only for a limited time, allowing all players to band together and complete the missions.


It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named Anno5.exe. The setup package generally installs about 42 files and is usually about 2.76 MB (2,892,815 bytes).
