Hold the phone – why is Anno 2205 so cheap at GMG? It’s a whopping 42% off the $60 list price just a day after its November 3rd launch with no coupons, mail in rebates, or any catches – just straight up instant savings. A testament to the profit margins in PC gaming?
- Anno 2205 — $34.99 at GMG (list $60)
- Uplay Key
GMG is selling a Uplay key. It’s not Steam, but even if you buy on Steam, you’ll still have to make a Uplay account anyway, so it’s still a little inconvenient either way.
The new Anno isn’t cheap because it flopped. To the contrary, Metacritic has it rating an impressive 80/100 – not bad. The user score is a little lower at a 7.2/10 star rating, but the main complaint appears to be a lack of a sandbox mode. Beyond that, the graphics are Grade A and gameplay is solid.
