Without much announcement, Anno 1800 suddenly got achievements on Steam as well. Until recently, these digital rewards for in-game achievements were actually only available on Ubisoft Connect. But now you can also bag glorious successes such as gold diggers, fake news or Töff-töff on Valve’s platform.
What do you get these achievements for? However, Steam does not tell you that. Here, the achievements are curiously almost completely as secret achievements displayed. At Ubisoft itself you can still see the requirements for all achievements. The three examples would be:
- gold digger: Earn a total of 100,000 coins
- fake news: Exchanges all articles in a newspaper.
- Cool-cool: Owns a train.
You can now earn a total of 112 achievements on Steam, but this also includes the achievements from the numerous DLCs. However, these achievements are apparently not handed in later, even if you should theoretically have already earned some of them. At least it does not seem credible that only four percent of all Steam users have published a newspaper full of false articles. Of course, we would never do that for professional reasons alone.
The achievements were added on April 12th. Which hardly anyone noticed because there was no official announcement. However, in the Update history on SteamDB understand that the achievements were handed in later on that day.
Why were the achievements missing?
Anno 1800 isn’t the only Ubisoft game that didn’t have any achievements on Steam. Many games still don’t have one, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion. All of these games were released long after they were released on Steam, only towards the end of last year.
Before that, Ubisoft stayed away from Steam for a while and only published its own titles in its own launcher and on Epic. It is unclear whether these other games will also receive achievements later.
