Ubisoft has announced the upcoming arrival of Year 1800 also on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S with the console editionwhich will bring Blue Byte’s excellent strategy/management to the historical setting also on the new generation consoles.
Unfortunately there isn’t one yet release date, but the existence of Anno 1800 Console Edition is reported by the official site, which also announces the forthcoming opening of a technical test on this new version of the game. If you want to participate in this sort of beta, you must register on the dedicated page at this address.
We are waiting to know the precise timing of the launch, but it is probably to wait until 2023 before being able to see Anno 1800 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, also considering the optimization work that will have to be carried out on the game interface, since it is a title studied so far for use on PC.
There are no precise details, but it is very probable that Anno 1800 Console Edition is a sort of summary package containing also some DLCs released post-launch for the PC version, considering the title came out over three years ago at this point.
It’s also a very good game, as we reported in our review of Anno 1800, where we call it “the best installment of the series since Anno 1404”, waiting to see how the developers have worked on the interface – one of the most highlights of this chapter – for the console versions. To get to know him better, you can also read our special on the Ubisoft masterpiece that no one knows, to put the emphasis back on a game that has perhaps been underestimated compared to its real value and which could regain further notoriety with this passage on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
