There’s also a free update which introduces players to a reworked construction menu. Players should be happy to know that they can now select and move multiple structures at once. Of course, there’s a New World map pool and the usual quality-of-life improvements.

The city-building real-time strategy game Anno 1800 is the seventh game in the Anno franchise released in 2019.

While it has the city-building and ocean combat mechanics like in the previous games, it introduces new gameplay mechanics like tourism, blueprinting, and industrialization that affects the inhabitants of the island.
