The game is available for free right on PC and is one of the most innovative city-building sims currently available. The game even the Best PC Game award back at Gamescom 2018 and is regarded as one of the best city-building strategy games.
Anno 1800 received generally positive reviews at launch and has only gotten better with subsequent DLCs, the latest of which it has received just yesterday. The game features all sorts of interesting tech such as trade routes, procedurally-generated maps, AI opponents as well as naval warfare. History buffs are sure going to dig a lot of cool things in Anno 1800 as it showcases the signature Ubisoft attention to detail when it comes to historical accuracy and authenticity.
Ubisoft currently has a lot of irons in the fire with the publisher reportedly having greenlit another Ghost Recon project. The publisher also confirmed earlier last year that the original Splinter Cell will be getting a remake.
Although, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake seems to be in a precarious spot as there has been no communication from the developer or publisher regarding the state of the game.
