How to play Anno 1800 for free on PC
Get a taste of the city building sim lifestyle to celebrate The High Life DLC's arrival
If you enjoy a game with a story-based campaign and a plethora of features that allows you to build you're own thriving city, Anno 1800 just might be the game that you've been missing out on.
Ubisoft's strategy sim sees you move with the times, building a bustling city in the dawn of the Industrial Age, with stunning environments to explore and build upon. Since it's launch in April 2020, the game has had a number of great DLCs released adding yet more content as part of the three main Season Passes, which have included exclusive ornaments and much more.
The final DLC of the Season Pass 3 content, The High Life, is now available - introducing the massive Skyline Tower and the opportunity to send your citizens to new heights (quite literally) in hot-air balloons. The new DLC launch isn't the only big announcement this week as Ubisoft also confirmed that you can play Anno 1800 for FREE for a limited time.
