Anno 1800 now has over one million players, is the fastest-selling Anno game to date

Ubisoft has announced that Anno 1800 currently has over one million players. As such, Anno 1800 is the fastest-selling game in Ubisoft’s beloved 21-year-old series. So yeah, apparently strategy games are not dead as some people thought.

In order to celebrate this announcement, Ubisoft shared the following infograph.

Lastly, Ubisoft announced a free to play weekend for Anno 1800. From March 12th and until March 15th, PC gamers will be able to download and play the game. Do note that once this free to play weekend ends, you won’t be able to access/play the game. However, all of your save progress will transfer to the final game once – and if – you purchase it.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
