Anno 1800 is the next Ubisoft game that will stay exclusive to Epic Games Store and UPLAY, Steam pre-orders will be honored

Ubisoft has announced that after the successful launch of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 on PC on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games store, it will be partnering once again with Epic Games for the release of Anno 1800. This basically means that the new strategy game will be available exclusively on these two digital stores.

As Ubisoft stated, pre-orders on Steam can be made until the release of the game and everyone who has pre-ordered Anno 1800 on Steam will be able to play the game upon release and will automatically get all future updates and content.

So yeah, contrary to what happened with other games, PC gamers can still pre-order the game until it comes out on April 16th.

Steam players will also be able to play online with the same players as Uplay or Epic Games store players. As the French team noted, Anno 1800’s multiplayer modus is handled via Uplay regardless of your chosen digital storefront, and will always allow all players to play with and against each other.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
