Experience the Industrial Revolution and Be the First to Test the New Day & Night Cycle during the Anno 1800 Free Week!
Today, we announced that Anno 1800 will be free to play for the occasion of gamescom 2019. Until August 25*, players will be able to get a first glimpse at the upcoming day & night cycle free update, releasing on September 10 for all the players. In addition, the second DLC of the game, Botanica, will also release on September 10 as part of the Season Pass.
Starting today until August 25* players can play for free Anno 1800 on Uplay and the Epic Games Store. The free trial includes the first three tiers of the sandbox mode along with the multiplayer mode. In addition, players will be able to try out for the first time the upcoming day & night cycle and enjoy the beauty of their city by night, to be released as a free update for every Anno 1800 player on September 10.
For Anno players who already own the game, please keep in mind that while the Day & Night cycle will be coming to the full game as a free update on September 10, you can only try it next week as part of the Free Week version. If you want to see the content before it comes out, we recommend to download the free version to check out the upcoming content update.
On September 10, Season pass holders will discover Botanica, the second DLC of Anno 1800. Players will be able to grow their city’s attractiveness to new heights with a modular Botanical Garden, allowing them to earn new items and rewards as they draw the tourist masses to their floral masterpiece. Alternatively, they will be able to construct the new Musical Pavilion and enjoy beloved tracks from previous Anno games inside their city.
Beyond that, we are happy to give you a first small teaser at our third DLC, The Passage, which is coming this Winter, and will allow you to construct your very own trading airships!
