performance is so bad on my i7 8700k and vega 64. it drops below 30fps wtf
Yeah I saw on the community forum on steam that the release version runs really, really bad on some computers (where on the open beta it was fine). So there's probably gonna be a patch soon to fix that (I hope)

It's running ok for me with a 6700K and a GTX1080 at 3440x1440. It's hard to keep 60 fps, and the fact that you have to restart the game every time you make a graphics settings change, means it's really slow to find good settings. Other than that the game is great.

This game is SO GOOD Y'ALL.

Campaign is a nice primer for the main game, takes about 10 to 15 hours, depending on how you play it and it just turns into a normal Free Play after the story is finished. Gonna recommend everyone to start with that one if they didn't play too much Anno the last few years.

Also, be aware that the game doesn't tutorialize many of its mechanics, like the ability (and necessity) to claim a few different islands over the course of the game even in the Old World alone, because different islands have different fertility rates for different ressources. It's quite obvious for long-time Anno players, but can turn into a major headache for newcomers. You just have to load up a ship with a few Steal Beams, clay and wood, drive it over to the island you want to claim and get close to a coastline. You will see an outline for the first building you can build and with that, you own the island.

Again, if someone knows how to do some design for the OT, feel free! Took me about 30 minutes and some grey hair for the image in the OP.
Is there some free alternative to photoshop for stuff like this that isn't as stupid to use as GIMP?

Can't wait to finally dive into the game! Should be ready in about an hour :D

Was totally outside my few, that it is coming out now. Got the invite to the open Beta last week that brought it back on my screen and liked what I saw during the beta.
Perfectly timed for the long Easter week end. Anno is one of the best Zen games as I call them, where you can play totlay relaxed watching you pops work, adjust a bit here, expand a bit there and somehow it is still oddly satisfying.

Haha, I tried working with GIMP a couple of weeks ago. I gave up.

MS Paint will forever be my friend, it seems.

Season pass info here:

https://www.anno-union.com/en/a-glimpse-of-the-future/

DLC 1: Sunken Treasures

Expand your island with a new European session and large continental island, as you join an eccentric inventor and his diving bell on a treasure hunt.

DLC 2: Botanica

Grow your city’s attractiveness to new heights with a modular Botanical Garden, allowing you to earn new items and rewards as you draw the tourist masses to your floral masterpiece. Alternatively, construct the new Musical Pavilion and enjoy beloved tracks from previous Anno games inside your city.

DLC 3: The Passage

The Passage will take you on a new adventure to the Arctic Circle as you explore the legendary Northwest Passage. To succeed in this merciless climate, you will need to construct an arctic outpost and master all-new production chains and goods.
SuikerBrood , game still shows available for pre-order on Steam thanks to Valve Time , when 1pm eastern hits it will probably disappear.

Sad to read that performance didn’t improve since the beta. Dropping below 30fps on an i7 9700K + RTX 2080 is not acceptable :/ and in 1440p not even 4k.

For those already playing, does the game need to be always online or can you play offline ?

Really looking forward to starting this. The performance issues are a bit concerning. A few people have mentioned starting Steam in Offline mode may be a fix.

This might indicate that the Steam version may not be ideal. Though, I'm assuming this is like any other Ubisoft game. I'm assuming once you tie it to your uPlay account you can just download and launch it through there if need be.

Huh? I used a 20% off code for this game a few hours ago. Worked fine.
I used a 20% code that I generated this morning!
Really? I tried applying it and nothing happened, looked at the FAQ and says this:

Cannot be applied to pre-orders/pre-purchases, in-game currency, newly released titles, or items under the clearance category.
  • A game is considered newly released for three months from the official launch date.
This code expires three months after the day you receive the code.

That's weird!
We're talking about the 20% coupon you get by redeeming 100 ubi coins, right?

we are currently investigating those reports. For now, could you try going offline in Steam and Uplay to see if that helps your FPS?

People have said that EU can use the 20% discount for new games, USA can not.

Oh I was talking about some others, personally, from the little I've played, it seems to run quite nicely, I play on high, and I have a vega64 and a i5 6600k if that's any help

I played for a quick hour last night.

Yeah, only getting 40-50fps on my 1080 was huh... Surprising...

The other two config thing I've noticed:

1- The game needs a UI scale option... The UI is huuuuge when playing in 1440p right now!
2- I am not able to bind actions to my mouse side buttons? Like I'd want to get build road or demolish to those buttons!

I can say this - the Anti-Aliasing setting on this game makes a massive performance difference for me.

I maxed out settings on my 2080ti + 9900k - with 8x AA, I get about 50-60 FPS average at 3440x1440, but with 4x AA it shoots up another 15-20 FPS. 4x AA looks very solid too, so I don’t feel the drop much.

I was finally able to play a bit :D
How do I build bridges? I have a quest to build a corporation, but I need bricks for this. The only source of argile for them is behind a river.

Felt like buying now because Steam version is going down today, but I'm gonna hold off because of the reported performance issues.

Probably will wait till they're fixed and price drop I suppose (maybe I'll collect enough ubi coins for that 20% off XD ), and just watch Keralis play through for now lol.

How's it running so far for people with Ryzen cpus?

yeah, 4x MSAA helps a lot with performance, I'm usually arounds 35-45 FPS now with my Xeon and 1070 in 1440p at least. Also try DX12, I played for around 4 hours before I had a crash, should also help with performance (CPU is most likely the limiting factor though).

Just build a road, it will build a wooden bridge (I did not notice if it required bricks to build).

Also, if you're in the campaign, salvaging some debris will give bricks.

Should have quoted me i was the one with the bad performance and no it doesn't help on steam. Somebody said sth about deactivating something in the launch settings about full screen optimization or sth like that. Also why do we have to restart the game for graphical settings changes each time :(

Maybe just buy it and give yourself a buffer to refund it?

Yeah I found out like a minute after posting this haha. Funny thing is, I actually tried that before already and it didn't work. Guess I didn't drag it enough.

Another question, what is the pre-requisite to being able to upgrade farmer houses to worker houses? I could upgrade some, but not all of them.
Also is there some interface where I can see what my city needs at the moment ? Like a big general overview like in Cities Skylines or Planet Coaster?

Yup, same question as I have a ryzen CPU.
