Anno 1503: The New World is a sequel to Anno 1602, a game that combines city building simulation, colonization, diplomacy, productions, trade and combat. The game has even more extensive options and features, offering a carefully modeled 16th century game world that is ten times bigger than the one from the previous installment in the series.
