Anno 1800 is the seventh installment of its franchise of real-time economic strategies. Like its predecessors, it is based around building cities.


Unlike the previous two installments of the series, which were set in the future, Anno 1800 returns to the series' roots and is based on real history. The game is set in the 19th century and explores the first twenty years of Industrial Revolution era. The industrialization and rising capitalism greatly influence the gameplay. The game features units like trains and cannons and takes into account such factors as workers' strikes and environmental pollution.


Anno series gameplay is a lot like if Civilization was in real time. In Anno 1800, the player controls an island country and administers its economy, military, diplomacy, and society. He or she discovers new technologies, explores the map, builds cities, factories, and farms, makes allies, and fights enemies. The game reintroduces randomly generated maps and physical trading goods that can be shipped by the routes. Unlike in the previous game, the combat is fully integrated into the gameplay and is not separated from the city building sessions. The game also features new elements such as tourism.


There are three main modes in Anno 1800: a sandbox mode, a campaign with a plot, and a multiplayer mode.

Anno 1800 reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Anno 1800 Introduction: Anno 1800 is one of the games that really interests me in The Building Strategy genre, the greater the Expectations, especially at Ubisoft, which are a separate Topic, and I also made it thanks to Announcement that EPIC will also be here. Wanted to interfere, pre-ordered directly. So What should I write here? Especially for whom? For Posterity who might buy here later or for those who buy it from Uplay now? I don't Know, but I, for one, will still make my Points here. Basically, I'm pretty pissed off, not really on Ubisoft or other Publishers who want to make Money but on the Dirt of Epic Games. Also on Steam I am slightly acidic as You do nothing big about it, such as increasing the Stomach. But this really does not belong in the Evaluation of the Game. The Decision to pre-order It was actually a Short-circuit decision. I was so excited about it, as I usually only look like the Games before I buy them, but it should just disappear from the Store upset me. But I can say I have no regrets. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1714729596 Plot? Boah ey that's a Building Strategy game. Basically just building up the City, taking care that you don't go into the Mieses and get bigger. There is a Campaign with some Chapters and free Play. You don't have to have much more either. Pro: + great Graphics + very nice music and also the Speakers I find Very good + Long-term Motivating + everything in it that a Build-up strategy game should have + nice Cutscenes + runs relatively stable on DX12 and Ultra Settings Contra:-Exclusive Epic Store after Release ( And Uplay, who needs epicdreck)-has frame break-ins-probably like to crash-releatively difficult for Newcomers (haven't played a Game from the Genre for a long Time And I find it a bit hard to find me pure)-funny lots of key assignments-Multiplayer only too four-L Aescreen lags animal-no Help for Beginners conclusion: I find the Games from this Genre are liked or hated. I myself like this Epoch in which this Anno is played. It goes back in History and is not about any future Day. I'm quite shackled even if the Game has a pretty simple Task, but it's wonderful to relax and you also have to use your Head to put the Population to peace. I myself are usually too fast with something and Nage mostly at the Poverty Line, but it's a lot of Fun, because you just don't want to give up. You are very quick to play the Game and try to do everything Humanly Possible so as not to have to start afresh. Time runs past one and then suddenly it's already half past 4 at Night. However, there are probably problems with some People as far as the Game is concerned. Have noticed it several times from People who use eg Overlays. I myself have only had game Crashes so far, which is probably due to DX12. By The way, with less Edge Smoothing, you get an extremely much more out of it in terms of Performance. All in all, it is also with the Problem I have a great Change. However, I must confess that I find the Price a bit high. Just because the Game As a normal Version Digital already costs €550 more than the Version on disks (the cost On Disks and the Marketing there is much Higher than the cost at Steam, so why go to Epic Games when you sell the Disks more cheaply?
