And now to the warm tropics of Tropico 6 by Limbic Entertainment. It’s the return of El Presidente as you choose to be a feared dictator or peace-loving statesman. Being developed now by Limbic Entertainment, multi-island archipelagos are a thing, along with more transportation options like bridges and tunnels. Election speeches are back too and you can customize yourself and your palace with a ton of style and color options. overall Overall it feels a lot like Tropico 5, but with some Tropico 4 stuff, which could be exactly what Tropico fans are looking for. Being in an open-beta has given us a closer look but it’s still riddled with bugs and plenty of stuff is missing. Targeting at January 2019 release, if all the kinks are worked out by then, Tropico 6 might actually have a chance to be the new favorite, – – or maybe it’s just trying to mix the wrong things… Our penultimate entry we’ve got Anno 1800 by Ubisoft Blue Byte. One of the most anticipated releases of 2019, Anno 1800 seems like it’s going back in time again after the series had a trip to the future. It’s the Industrial Revolution and you can be an innovator or an exploiter, an oppressor or a liberator.
Promising a classic Anno experience, it seems like it’s aiming for older fans and a story mode, campaigns, sandbox mode and multiplayer are available. Museums and zoos are a new thing too, modular buildings that you can customize and add to your collection. Gameplay has been revealed and it looks a lot like an upgraded Anno 1404. Which is what a lot of people want, but games like this, like Tropico 6, – – are always a balancing act of keeping what’s old and adding what’s new. Either way we’ll know what Anno 1800 is like for sure in February 2019. Finally there’s Lethis – Path of Progress 2 by Triskell Interactive. 2D, isometric city-building game heavily inspired by the old Impressions titles. Lethis takes the Walker system from games like Caesar 3 and Pharaoh, and brings it to a steampunk universe. The first game was okay, but got stuck with some unfortunate development issues, mainly to do with the game engine. This time though they’re developing in the more universal Unity, and it seems to have way more promise than the first game. The visual style looks to be a kind of European, Ghibli inspired artwork. Buildings will be modular and they’re aiming to improve upon all past mistakes.
Looking at a 2020 release, Lethis – Path of Progress 2 could be the kind of game many have been waiting for. Let’s just hope there aren’t the same kind of hiccups the first game encountered. Of course with an upcoming games list some are gonna be missed, as they’re announced over the years. So do check out the pinned comment and the description down below. But one hint we do have is Paradox Interactive is considering city-building games. They’ve even put out a survey asking people what they were looking for. So we could be seeing more city-building games coming from Paradox Interactive. And that’s it! That’s 22 upcoming city builders that should be releasing through 2019 and some into 2020, depending on their development. Which ones are you most interested in? Also, here’s something I’d like to know: Do you like these new experimental city-building games, or are you just into the classic kind of stuff? Personally I tend to enjoy the new approaches but always end up spending the most of my time with games from 20 years ago. Speaking of, if you’d like to see more city building content, check out my Caesar 3 special challenge playthrough, – – and plenty more city building content right here on the channel, or drop by the other 5 lists for this year where I talk about many many more games. Alright, that’s all for now. Thank you so much for watching, hope you enjoyed it and found it useful, and I’ll see you in the next video! [Subtitles by Fairbuy]
