En bref. Avis aux amateurs de la très bonne série Anno, les quatre premiers titres de celle-ci vont bénéficier de modernisations assez importantes niveau technique. A savoir un portage en 64 bit pour améliorer les performances, l’ajout de nouvelles résolutions pour une compatibilité allant jusqu’au 4K, puis diverses améliorations.
Pour l’occasion voici une jolie bande-annonce, qui ne montre toutefois quasi rien des dites améliorations.
De plus, attention, les nouvelles versions de chaque titre ne se trouveront pas forcément partout, voyez selon les cas les informations dans le communiqué suivant.
Pour plus d’informations sur Anno History Collection, dont la sortie est prévue a priori à la fin juin, voyez par exemple cette page chez l’éditeur. Ou sinon sur Anno Union.
Announcing the Anno History Collection
Hey Anno Community,
today we are very excited to share the announcement of the upcoming Anno History Collection with you all. With this collection, we are updating the first four Anno games (1602, 1503, 1701 and 1404) to take advantage of modern PCs, while keeping the classic gameplay we all know and love. Among the more notable improvements to all four games are:
– All games being ported to 64-bit to improve performance and stability (say goodbye to Anno 1404 running out of memory)
– Support for new resolutions all the way up to 4k, making your empires look better than ever before
– Improved multiplayer, with all games now running through Uplay, with comfort features such as quickmatch and desync recovery (as seen in Anno 1800). And yes… ANNO 1503 MULTIPLAYER IS OFFICIALLY HERE!
– Full save game compatibility, so we hope you have held on to those beloved saves from years past
– Of course, all games include their expansions, as well as any other official content that may have been released over the years
So how and where will you be able to get your hands on these releases?
