Blue Byte’s city-building/industry-managing sim has been delayed to early 2019.
Blue Byte’s Anno 1800 reappeared at Gamescom 2018 as its publisher Ubisoft released a new trailer, and finally offered a release date. Unfortunately, the city-building strategy game won’t be out this year, but it is coming on February 26th, 2019. Check out the new trailer to see some fresh fairly good-looking gameplay.
Anno 1800 takes a step back from the many futuristic titles in the franchise, venturing into the Industrial Revolution. Players can choose a variety of different approaches, though the impetus is still on building and expanding your city. To that effect, you can have expeditions where a crew of specialists will travel the world for adventure.
They’ll essentially complete quests on their own and probably discover some rare treasures while you continue your conquest. A story campaign is provided in the game, but players can mess about in sandbox mode as well, and also hop online for multiplayer. Multi-session play is returning, and randomly generated maps will help keep the action fresh, too.
