Anno 1800 launches on PC today, giving you a chance to pursue your ambitions of growing a humble trading post into a bustling metropolis. The latest installment of the classic city-building franchise lets you put your skills as a ruler to the test by planning and expanding your settlement; developing lucrative supply chains and trade networks; and settling a new continent.
Regular free updates will expand the game with new features like a co-op mode, community challenges, and a Statistics Building that will offer players more information about their production chains and available output. Season Pass owners will also get to explore three major pieces of post-launch content over the course of 2019. Hunt for treasure with an eccentric inventor and his diving bell in The Sunken Treasure, which adds a new European "Old World" session and a large continental island to the game. Draw tourists to your city by developing a modular botanical garden in Botanica to earn new items and rewards. Build an Arctic outpost in The Passage and deveop new production chains to expand your empire even further.
