Anno 1800 Epic Store

Following the “successful launch of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2”, Ubisoft has announced partnership with Epic Games Store for the long-awaited Anno 1800.  Players can now pre-order the Standard and the Deluxe Editions of the game via Epic Games Store.

Once the game has been released on April 16, 2019, Anno 1800 will only be available digitally on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games store.
