Anno 1602 Free for a Limited Time


Ubisoft is celebrating 20 years of the Anno series of games by giving away Anno 1602 on their Uplay platform until 23 December. This classic RTS brings together a combination of management and building, and is a genre still popular today with the upcoming Anno 1800 releasing in February.

There’s no need to worry about having to get an old computer running or setting up a Windows 9x virtual machine, as the game works natively on all current versions of Windows including Windows 10.

By combining construction and strategy within one game, ANNO 1602 – Creation of a New World opens up a whole new genre of games. Far better than any previous trade or economy simulation game, ANNO 1602 allows the player to create a realistic and vivid world entirely based on your imagination. The aim is to discover an island world, to colonize and to expand it and to trade with other islands. But you also have to defend this world against possible enemies!
