Anno 1800 Coming Winter 2018
« on: August 22, 2017, 05:52:23 PM »
I keep finding these announcements while on my phone for some reason so I can't link...but Anno 1800 is just a few months away and looks quite choice. Anno is a series I have dabbled in but always wanted to dive deeper in. Maybe this will be the one.

The earlier Anno's were good. The most recent one by all accounts was trash.

I will probably wait until a sale either way.
Insert witty comment here.

The Anno games, all of them, are a house of cards. Fun to get going, but very frustrating when your supply chain gets interrupted. They're not bad games..but other series do it better.

^I've only played Anno 1400 to any extent but I found what you posted above to be true...just one bump in supply and the whole project falls apart. That said, I love the idea of the series moving in to the industrial revolution.

Thanks for the heads up Gus.  Looks interesting!  I envision steam punk mods in the game's future  O0

I'm interested. That's a good era for a game like this, and one that I don't think has been used yet.

Anno 1800 may not be a day 1 purchase for me but I will buy it sooner or later (unless something is terribly wrong with it).
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

Thanks for posting - trying to wrack my brain and remember if I have 1602 or not...

Looks like another epic exclusive:)  Although sounds like if you pre-purchase on steam, can still play on there even after launch....but you just can't buy on steam after launch.

So no beta for Steam buyers, and it will never go on sale on Steam or even be sold on Steam after release.    :knuppel2:   I'm out.  Wasn't that hyped anyway but might have picked it up on a Steam sale down the road if it got rave reviews.
