Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ubisoft is partnering with Epic Games store for Anno 1800

Tagged games:



Following the successful launch of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 on PC on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games store, we are announcing today that we are partnering with Epic Games on Anno 1800 as well. Players can now pre-order the Deluxe and Standard editions of Anno 1800 on PC on the Epic Games store. Moreover, all players will be able to try Anno 1800 via the Open Beta, scheduled from April 12 to April 14, by downloading the game on Uplay or via the Epic Games store. Once the game has been released on April 16, 2019, Anno 1800 will only be available digitally on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games store. Pre-orders on Steam can be made until the release of the game. Everyone who pre-ordered Anno 1800 on Steam will be able to play the game upon release and will automatically get all future updates and content.

Boo!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Given that the release date of Anno 1800 is April 16th, in less than 20 days, I guess the whole "we won't do that again" statement from Epic about the Metro incident was, as some expected, nothing more than words. Of course, Anno is a much smaller game, so neither Epic nor Ubi will face the backwash.

Still, I do take note of this.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

Consolewar is evolving :p

I can't say I'm surprised. Epic make it sound like they had a smoking gun, and that they didn't want to have to "shoot" again, despite the fact that they have and wanted to.

That being said, I'm practically done with Ubisoft at this point. Their buggy/"demanding" ports and higher prices for what they sell at launch, along with this debacle has me really just not wanting to support them in the near or far future. They've hardly cared for PC gamers interests for years. They never even apologized for them citing the entire platform for piracy years back, so I can't say I've any empathy for them, if they were to ever hit a wall anytime soon. 

I was originally looking to see how Anno would turn out, since the last one was received poorly and rather watered down, but seeing as how this has happened, I went out and bought Tropico 6 instead.

ugh...I was looking forward to this. Bye bye Anno 1800. I guess I'll keep playing Anno 1404 and Civ VI then.

I won't be hearded into pre-ordering it just for the 'privilige' of being able to play it on Steam.

Yeah I think its pretty scummy of them doing such.

This is one on the list for me to buy when its like dirt cheap on Uplay.

Edit: Unless the game still comes out on Steam a year later.

So much for "we don't want to do this again":



                                       

Money does buy love.



Good news. My wallet is partnering up with only Steam.

I don't think this is a big loss anyway, never really liked how Ubisoft viewed and treated the PC community... And Anno isn't exactly a massive franchise at any rate.
