Digital Standard Edition
Anno 1800 ™ – Lead the Industrial Revolution!
THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA
Welcome to the 19th century, a time of industrialization, diplomacy, and discovery. Rich with technological innovations, conspiracies and changing allegiances, this era presents the perfect setting for classic Anno gameplay. Anno 1800 provides players an opportunity to prove their skills as a ruler as they create huge metropolises, plan for efficient logistics networks, settle for exotic new continents, send out expeditions around the globe and dominate their opponents by diplomacy, trade, or warfare.
A CLASSIC ANNO EXPERIENCE
Anno 1800 takes over 20 years of Anno history. It delivers a rich city-building experience, including a story-based campaign, a highly customizable sandbox mode, and the classic Anno multiplayer experience. Anno 1800 wants to see the return of beloved features, such as individual AI opponents, shippable trade goods, randomly generated maps, multisession gameplay, items, and more.
NEW FEATURES FOR A NEW AGE
To bring this pivotal historical era to life, Anno 1800 introduces many new features to the franchise’s rich tradition. While the new workforce feature makes it more challenging and more realistic than ever, expats allow players to send their work to the world. Finally, players want to settle South America as they lay claim to the black gold powering this new age of industry.
