View Full Version : Co-Op mode

Hi everyone,

First off, let me thank BlueByte for developping yet another great Anno series, 1800 industrial times! This seems to be a great innovation from Anno 1404 Venice, which I personally loved the most.

I'm sure Anno 1800 is still in early development, though I would like to suggest to create Co-Op play just like the older Anno series 1404 Venice, so you can have multiple players play 1 civilization. I found that a lot of players were hoping for a co-op mode in 2205, unfortunately this never came to the game.

Moreover, would it be possible to generate custom games with highly skilled NPC's? When I'm currently playing 1404, with 3 hard NPC's and insane corsairs, the game gets fairly easy in half an hour. Maybe because of too much experience? :p

Nevertheless, this is an astonishing new title and I'm sure every Anno and Settlers player is looking forward to its release!

Thank you #TeamBlueByte!

Lots of love,
VDluger

Co-op is the main reason I still play Anno 1404 with friends, I would love to see this feature return!

I think a co-op mode would improve the multiplayer quality alot, but my idea is to up your idea by having maybe as many as 10 people per gane, allowing more people to fight and ally with each other, maybe even the abillity to have a deplomacy bar, allowing trades, payments and alliances.

For sure, for me, Co-op is one of the most used functions in both ANNO 1404 and ANNO 2070. Great feature. Two friends of mine and myself will always co-op when possible. Although... if there is a political aspect to this game .. maybe we don't want to co-op anymore :) We shall see!

It was said in some interviews that there probably won't be a coop mode like in Anno 1404. However nothing stops you from playing a pvp game together with your friends without fighting. I personally really liked the coop mode too!

Just look at these early comments from die-hard fans. They need to implement CO-OP! Thanks everyone :)

Co-op in 1404 is fantastically well implemented, and it fits the game perfectly!

Hopefully the devs read this and add it to the game, maybe as an expansion like Venice?

Throwing my comment in here as well. Yes to co-op!

I really hope for Co-op aswell, Loved it in Anno 1404 and also in 2070. One of the most intense anno experience was Power Games as Co-op in Anno 2070 and if I had been alone I would probably still be stuck on my island desperately holding off Keto's attacks.

My friends and I would spend hours... no days... playing co-op... I know it can be quite difficult to balance the game for single player, multiplayer, and co-op, but its an undeniably great feature you've had in previous versions. I know it eventually became a bit easy with co-op, but I would think there would have to be a way to balance for co-op to still keep the game challenging. Don't get me wrong I still played 2205 and will hopefully play 1800 (even without co-op), but I can't deny my friends and I truly never enjoyed 2205 like we did working together in previous Anno games.

I really hope they'll implement a LAN mode, I don't want to use UPlay to play over local area network. It's what kept me away from Anno 2070.
And I think that I was not the only one, because for Anno 2205 they ditched multiplayer in its entirety.

For me co-op in Anno is a must.

There is going to be multiplayer from the start, whether that means co-op, it doesn't explicitly say: https://www.anno-union.com/en/multisession-gameplay-in-anno-1800/

My friends and I have clocked in countless hours of 1404 MP. Not an insignificant amount of those come from co-op. So yes please!

I think a co-op is rather unique in this type of game. And it never gets bored!

Still playing anno 1404 still hooked on co-op

For me and my friends coop is the only reason to buy this game.
We played hundrets of hours in 1404 and a lot in 2070.
Nobody bought 2205 because of the missing coop part.

And even a normal multiplayer would not be enough.
I dont like to play Anno as a competitive game against others and if you say you can play in peace yeay sure i could but in that case i could also play a singleplayer game
and just be in teamspeak. The only possible interaction is helping each other in times of war and a bit of trade. But on the other hand if you play a peacefull game with 2-4 players on one map you have only 1/2-1/4 of the possible Islands.

Coop is just great to play together and build your empire together. In 1404 with one player managing orient and one the oxident. In 2070 one for the techs, one for tycoons and one for the ecos.

But it would also be ok if there is only 1 faction and 1 player has to manage the main island and the other player is in charge of gettig resources from the other islands or fighting of the enemy.

Nobody of my friends will buy anno if the coop is missing.

I agree Co-op is good idea! Also general multiplayer give game longevity and is good and fun to play. This especially cause that you recommend games to your friends too and you play mutliplayer together = more players will buy the game, since a lot of people love to play with friends.

Will the there be co-op (similar to 1404/2070) multiplayer?
Unfortunately, this has not been confirmed yet.

Still nothing on this topic :-(
Let's go DevTeam, make us the happiest Anno residents ever!

We played (and still play so many hours on co-op). Ubisoft lost my boyfriend's data and we lost all his achievements, which hurt. We would absolutely love to see the classic Anno feel come back with true co-op play.

Will there be a Co Op mode in the game? Like where me and my wife can work on the same city?

Just wanted to add my two cents about co-op. Co-Op is a must in my opinion, I have enjoyed may hours in 1602 and 2070 with my brother controlling the same cities. It adds an element of team work that makes the game really fun. When two people can be working towards the same goals but be workers on different project.

My friends and i really enjoy playing 1404 and 2070 because there is co-op. So we usually play with 3 or 4 ppl. So my wife and i ran into some problems when connecting with our friends, we did some port configuartion on 2070 (3074+3075) but for 1404 we were not able to find a solution. I really hope 1800 solves this issue or makes it possible to that we are able to connect with 2 or more from the same address with other players.

Bump. I would only be interested in co-op ANNO as well.

Has there been any further information about this?

Is Ubi going to give us a firm answer at some point so we can know if we should pre-order or not?

Start watching at 5:13. Ubisoft clearly confirms multiplayer co-op.

That’s not a conformation of a coop mode that we know from Anno 1404 or 2070. Just a confirmation that you can play in sperate factions together or against each other.

Please let this become a thing

i've played 1404 with 3 friends (2 players per faction) and we switched teammates after each game.
so many hours on that gem.

This would really be awesome! It makes Anno 1404 Venice still great to play with friends. It was implemented really intiutive, and it would seem like it would not be too much of a hassle to implement it in Anno 1800. Since it wasn't in the base game of Anno 1404, I don't need it to be in the base game on release, but in a year after release I would really much love to have it,

I love Coop . Pls bring in to the game ! I hope and think Anno 1800 will and could be a new milestone in the Anno history.... but there must be Coop.... It's a big feature in Anno.

PLEASE bring back Co-op! Playing 14hrs+ sessions with my mates were the best times ever in Anno1404! Plus Co-op option will be the reason for them to buy the game. Thx :)

Apparently Ubisoft just confirmed that they don't have plans for adding it to the game (German review site asked them, source (https://www.gamestar.de/artikel/anno-1800-koop-modus-ist-aktuell-nicht-geplant,3340255.html) (German)). This kind of boggles my mind, to be honest. If there ever was an Anno that needed this feature, it's 1800. My enthusiasm has been significantly dampened.

The game is now beautiful and well designed. We also liked the Betra very much but:

No cooperative mulktiplayer planned with a faction. But why? there is no reason to rule this out except the unwillingness to respond to the wishes of the community. I can't understand that, because the previous multiplayer can't replace it, because it behaves completely different. Furthermore, you can't add enough opponents for a joint game to 4 against the ki or other players.

We ask you to reconsider this decision.

thank you
your fans

wurtzelsepp86
02-09-2019, 06:47 PM
Yes, the promise to have an open ear for the fan community was a big lie.
We would wish to be able to stronieren the pre-order. Because we did it within the promise of a classic Anno multiplayer experience.

If i want to play with 3 Friends there are no NPCs to fight against. So is this forced PVP?

Give us 4 in 1 PVP oder more player slots.

that is such a shame, that the most important feature will not make it to release -.- For now i totally lost the interest in 1800, and i'm happy, that i did not preorder it.

Ubisoft likes to remove unique selling points of their products and then wonders what is happening.

Zmarti
02-14-2019, 04:37 PM
In their last union talk, they discussed how feedback given by players who played (or still play -_-) the beta can be incorporated because of the postponed release date. I just hope they take this feedback to heart also, since it's a very oft requested feature, that would surely get more people to play the game!

Yeah I wondered this as well. Not as in Ubisoft, but as in Blue Byte. They have to know how popular co-op is, and it should've been a priority to implement it...

Hi Wurzelsepp86 (nice name by the way :D)

You found much nicer words than me. I just talked to my two anno mate just two days ago and I was furious about all the reviewers who consider 1800 to be better than 1440.
IMHO, the lack of coop (I mean real coop with one faction not this teaming up with two faction thing) renders all the reviewers as "liars" (that said: IIRC coop with Anno 1440 came with a DLC / Addon -Venice - so my last tiny bit of hope - it'd come as dlc on one day - I joined the anno series with 2070).
Thanks to coop I've an accumulated playtime of 1100+ hours in Anno 2070 and 250+ hours in Anno 1440 (which we started last year).
But as things are now, I'd predict, that it will lack of this very feature (for all DLCs) and I'll return to 2070 after 50 hours of gameplay (which would be horrible.. I've got 90 hours for 2205 - there was the season pass mess (yes we remember!) and the "probbably it will get multiplayer as 1440"-hope).
IMHO: As long as it hasn't a coop mechanism like 2070 and 1440: Venice, every Anno successor is an unworthy sucessor.
