Ubisoft takes us back to the Industrial Revolution with Anno 1800

Ubisoft is now hosting a community project called Anno Union for users to vote for which NPC they'd like to have in the game. As expected by the game's name and the trailer above, it is set in the industrial age, departing the futuristic setting of the previous title in the series, Anno 2205.

Ubisoft has announced Anno 1800, the next entry in the city-building sim franchise from Blue Byte. The technological and political landscapes were rapidly evolving during this period in history, so it is up to players to keep track of the changes so their empire will survive.

Players will have the chance to prove their skills as a ruler, as they create huge metropolises, plan efficient logistic networks, explore and settle new lands and dominate their opponents by diplomacy, trade or warfare.

Due for release this winter, this latest title promises a combination of beloved and new, innovative features.
