Anno is a perfect city-building game out there. If you are one of the players who love city-building games, then Anno is for you. I have played Anno 2070 a bit, and the majority of my time with Anno was spent on Anno 1800 (cracked, because Ubisoft doesn’t entertain local payment methods, and when using PayPal for handling the payments, I end up paying more than the actual price). This is the exact problem with Origin and Epic Games. And for that specific reason, I love Steam. Anyways, back to the topic. The Anno 1404 History Edition is currently given away by Ubisoft for free.
The giveaway starts from 6th December local time till 14 December local time. Till then you are free to claim a copy of the game and keep it for life. For that, you have to head to Ubisoft Free games, and then click on Get Free Game under Anno 1404. It will take you to a new page so that you can link a copy of the game to your Ubisoft account, and for that, you have to use UPlay Connect in order to complete and download the game to play. Do note, with the history edition, you get the base game as well as the Anno 1404 Venice.
