Anno 1800 takes place during the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century.

Following the themes of previous installment(s), the game brings the series’ traditional city-building and ocean combat mechanics, but introduces new aspects of gameplay, such as tourism, blueprinting, and the effects of industrialisation has on island inhabitants.
