Anno 1800, or Anno 7 if you're keeping count, is one very good looking strategy game. So good looking it can make the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB break into quite a sweat. As ever though, performance comes down to the graphics settings you're happy with. 
The Anno 1800 Closed Beta test has been taking place this weekend, giving us our first chance to go hands-on with the new historical management strategy game. Anno 1800 was originally set to launch on February 26th but has been pushed back until April 16th, providing Blue Byte with an extra couple of months of optimisation time.
Ubisoft and developer Blue Byte have announced Anno 1800 will be leading the Industrial Revolution from February 26th, 2019. They announced the release date for the highly anticipated management game alongside a Gamescom 2018 trailer, with Anno 1800 scooping up Best PC Game award on the Gamescom show floor.
We heard a whisper that Ubisoft and Blue Byte Mainz had a major new strategy game in the works, and Gamescom 2017 in Germany was the perfect place to unveil Anno 1800. It continues the Anno series’ fine tradition of all its digits adding up to nine (1404, 1602, 2205, 2070), this time putting players in charge of the Industrial Revolution.
