City-builder Anno 1800 is coming soon, with an Open-Beta this weekend.

With an Open-Beta live this weekend and full release next week on April 16, Ubisoft has released a trailer showing off some of Anno 1800’s accolades from critics that have had a chance to view and experience what’s on offer in the latest Anno instalment.

Anno 1800 combines features from 20 years of Anno history, delivering a rich city-building experience, including a story-based campaign, a highly customizable sandbox mode, and the classic Anno multiplayer experience.

Returning to the industrial revolution from its excursions in the near, and distant future, Anno 1800 will see the return of its fan-favourite features such as individual AI opponents, shippable trade goods, randomly generated maps, multi-session gameplay, items and even some naval combat.

Anno 1800 will release worldwide on April 16, 2019, on Windows PC. Players who pre-order Anno 1800 will receive the Imperial Pack containing extra content for the game. Digital Deluxe and Pioneers Editions owners will have access to exclusive content including the Anarchist character.
