We recently announced that Anno 1800 will only be available for digital purchase through the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Connect after April 16th 2019. Should you have pre-ordered the game via Steam or are still planning to do so, we want to assure you, that you don't need to have any concerns!
For existing Steam Pre-Orders
If you pre-ordered the game via Steam, it will remain in your library. You will be able to launch the game through your Steam client, and you will receive all content and game updates at the same time as players on other digital store fronts.
We are committed to provide the same experience to all Anno players regardless of their point of purchase.
If you are still thinking on buying the game on Steam
While the game will be available for digital purchase only on the Epic Games Store and Uplay after April 16, Anno 1800 can be pre-ordered on Steam until this point.
If you pre-order the game on Steam, you will be able to play with others who purchased the game on other digital store fronts and get all the upcoming content and patches that will be released after launch.
