I believe it, I've never seen so much press about an Anno game.

It's bad news bears tho. They've learnt you don't have to provide content to succeed. Just make the game very pretty and brain dead journos will shit nine-out-of-tens all over it, creating hype in their wake.

Anno 2070 Owners: 500,000 .. 1,000,000
Anno 2205 Owners: 200,000 .. 500,000
Anno 1800 Owners: 500,000 .. 1,000,000

So 1800 sold more in preorders on Steam than 2205 sold in all of its time being on Steam.


Now for something unrelated, going into first person mode really makes you think about the game's performance.

6500 average players after 1 month. Welp, it is worse than some indies...

Much unsurprising. There's just not much to do in this stump of a game. There's just the tiny campaign and sandbox but Anno games have always been relatively limited compared to shit like Skylines or Cities XL, they don't have enough depth for long-term sandboxing. They've always been at their best with goal oriented single scenario missions.

Don't forget that only the preorders were in Steam, many bought it on Uplay and Epic probably. So the player number on Steam is not too high to begin with. Compare it to any Anno games on Steam, and you see that this one is doing the best.

On one hand SJWs call for whitewashing history - games depicting men and women as equal - so that we don't see what reality was like. The nuAssCreed games are good examples - in Origins children attend mixed school classes (utter nonsense in that era) and in Odyssey half of the Greek army are women. On the other hand SJWs are outraged when games do NOT depict reality. Because of course they are.

The sales are all Steam pre-orders. When I search for Anno on the Epic store right now it returns zero results. Couldn't even give them money for it if I wanted to.

If I have never played an Anno game before, what would be a good one to start with?

Start with Anno 1602. It's perfectly playable and its atmosphere and soundtrack are just terrific. Don't miss that experience.

1404 seems to be the best (i like it a lot) but some of its features are grindy and bloated.

The best thing I've said about Origins is that the game is utterly dull and soulless but the world is great. If that is defending niggerkangz garbage to you then 'k I suppose.

I made this thread but haven't played the game yet. But the thread didn't really move forward since release. Are the rumors true, that this game is rather mediocre and boring? What's the Kodex Konsensus?
