Nearly 2.5 million players turned out for Anno 1800 worldwide, and the game is coming to next-gen consoles soon!
Ahlala, control fans will be glad they don’t go back to their old car to play Anno 1800.
What is Anno 1800?
This is a management game that will require managers to develop their “management talents”. You can build large cities there, as well as large infrastructure, to improve the quality of your logistics network. Populate new continents and try to outdo all your opponents, be it political, diplomatic, economic or military!
Studio Ubisoft Mainz, in charge of development, explains that this console version “will offer players a real Anno game with a completely redesigned user interface and controls for next-gen consoles.”
The game’s executive producer at Ubisoft, Stefan Jankowski, justifies this as follows:
“Anno 1800 is a great achievement for the studio and the history of the Anno brand, created 25 years ago. The popularity and success of PC games has given us the opportunity to develop a console version of the game and leverage the capabilities of the next generation of consoles. Bringing the most popular and award-winning game Anno to console will allow new players to experience it for the first time and join our amazing community. »
When will it be released and at what price?
