Ubisoft's latest city-building simulation Anno 1800 is nowhere to be found on their new subscription service Uplay Plus. The publisher explained that due to technical reasons, Anno 1800 will not be available on Uplay Plus on launch.

Earlier this week, Ubisoft officially launched their game pass-style subscription service named Uplay Plus. The service offers every game from the publisher's catalogue for $15 per month with three-day early access to all upcoming titles.

Ubisoft also offer a free trial to all Uplay users and as expected, many players are eager to try it out. And while you can download and play almost every game right now, there is an issue which prevents players from getting Ubisoft's latest strategy Anno 1800.

According to Ubisoft, due to technical issues, Anno 1800 won't be available on the subscription service for some time. The devs are working on it and will reveal more details as soon as possible.

"Due to technical reasons, Anno 1800 will not be available on UPLAY+ at the launch of the service. We are working to make it available for players as soon as possible. We’ll provide a more precise date when we can," it's written on Ubisoft's support page.

While this will certainly disappoint many strategy fans, there is plenty of other games that you can try until Ubisoft fixes the issue. You can play other games from the series like Anno 2205 or try something from The Settlers franchise.

Also, there are classic strategy titles such as Heroes of Might and Magic. Uplay Plus certainly has a lot in store for strategy fans. If you would rather spend some time with other genres, Uplay Plus also includes heavy hitters like The Division 2, Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Rainbow Six: Siege.

If you're unfamiliar with Anno 1800, AltChar's Telxvi enjoyed the game, giving it 8 out of 10 . Here are his thoughts on it: "From its mellow unobtrusive soundtrack, to its carefully laid out systems, the city-builder has the potential to obliterate hours as if they were minutes and has notifications warning to stretch legs, eat, and check on your next of kin for a reason. A planned quick session can easily devour half a day before you know it."
