First Anno 1800 Technical Test begins at the end of November, official PC requirements for beta

Ubisoft has just announced that the first technical test for Anno 1800 will begin at the end of this month. According to the team, this test is intended to give us valuable insights into topics like balance and game performance, and it won’t be representative of the final polished game.

Ubisoft has also revealed the official PC requirements for this upcoming beta/technical test. PC gamers will at least need an Intel i5 3470 or an AMD FX 6350 with 8GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 670 GTX or an AMD Radeon R9 285 graphics card.

Unfortunately, this technical test will have an NDA, meaning that attendees will not be able to post any pictures, videos or to stream the game. Players will also be limited to Citizen Tiers 1-3, and the Campaign won’t be playable.

Anno 1800 is currently scheduled for a February 2019 release on the PC!
