Ubisoft is currently offering free copies of Anno 1602 to everyone in order to celebrate its 20th anniversary (the game was released on September 24th, 1998, so technically it’s more than 20 years but still).
PC gamers can go ahead and claim their free copy from this link. Do note that you can claim you free key until December 23rd at 01:00 GMT + 2 (or December 22nd 23:00 GMT).
Anno 1602 is a construction and management game developed by Max Design that was set in the early modern period. The game requires the player to build colonies on small islands and manage resources, exploration, diplomacy and trade. The game also implemented a ‘progressive’ artificial intelligence, meaning that the pace of the game changes in response to how quickly players act.

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. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
