Welcome to the 19th Century, the dawn of the industrial age! Diplomacy, trade or warfare, choose your strategy for victory.

Anno 1800 brings players at the dawn of the industrial age, a time of industrialization, diplomacy and discovery. Players will have the chance to prove their skills as a ruler, as they create huge metropolises, plan efficient logistic networks, explore and settle new lands and dominate their opponents by diplomacy, trade or warfare.

Anno 1800 combines the best of what the franchise can offer: a rich city-building experience, including a story-based campaign, a highly customizable sandbox mode and the classic Anno multiplayer experience.

This is the dawn of the industrial age and the path you choose will define your world. Are you renovator or exploiter? Suppressor or liberator? Diplomacy, trade or warfare, choose your strategy for victory. It’s up to you how the world will remember your name.

Ubisoft announced that Anno 1800 is releasing a Season 3 Pass composed of three DLCs, “Docklands,” “Tourist Season,” “The High Life,” as well as three exclusive ornaments. The Season 3 Pass will invite players to discover harbour trades, tourism, and manage big city-building heights. Players will experience a new way of exporting and promoting their cities thanks to modular warehouse district, tour busses, and skyscrapers.

Docklands is the first DLC from Season 3, releasing on February 23, 2021. Anno fans will transform their city by building a modular warehouse district, starting with the main building, which is inspired by the world-famous “Speicherstadt” (the world’s largest warehouse district and an UNESCO World Heritage site in Hamburg, Germany). Docklands will also provide Anno 1800 with a new way of trading, allowing players to export rare goods and reinforce their economy. Alongside Captain Tobias Morris, who will be the link between the players and companies all over the world, players are given the possibility to encounter interesting exports and become a market leader.

Season 3 Pass will also introduce players to the tourism industry through Tourist Season, scheduled for spring 2021. Players, among others, will keep visitors entertained with enriching activities and delicious dishes from their best restaurants, while also setting up a tour bus network in their cities. The High Life, on the other hand, will teach Anno adepts how to manage a big city full of skyscrapers, and how to satisfy demanding citizens with new commercial goods and malls in Summer 2021. This will permit players to customize their Anno 1800’s Old World session with brand new elements, such as new monuments, a hotel, restaurants, buildings, and malls to progress their city.

There will be two Anno 1800 Year 3 Editions, available as of today:

  • Complete Edition Year 3: Features main game, Deluxe pack, and all three season passes
  • Gold Edition Year 3: Features main game, Deluxe pack, and Season 3 Pass

These will be available, replacing the old editions.  In addition to the three DLCs, Anno 1800 will receive free Game Updates to accompany each DLC release, which will focus on improving the gaming experience.

Anno is available on the Ubisoft Store and Epic Games store for Windows PC. Season Pass 3 will be available for $19.99 (savings of $5). Individually, the DLCs cost $6.99 for “Docklands,” and $8.99 for both “Tourist Season” and “The High Life.”

Ubisoft Blue Byte also offers players the opportunity to join their team in the creation of Anno 1800 with ANNO Union. This brand new community initiative will provide exclusive content, latest news, development insights, behind the scenes content and give them the opportunity to play the game early. Gamers will be able to help the studio shape the future of the franchise, as they will regularly be invited to share their feedback, vote on features, create content and get the chance to take part in play tests during its development. 

Anno 1800 is available on PC.
