By Andrew Burnes on April 11, 2019 | Featured Stories Drivers

Our latest GeForce Game Ready driver delivers day-one support for Anno 1800 and its upcoming Open Beta, and expanded support for DXR ray tracing on GeForce GPUs.

To download and install, simply fire up GeForce Experience and click the "Drivers" tab.

Game Ready For Anno 1800

The first city-building Anno game, Anno 1602, launched 20 years ago in its native Germany. On April 16th this year, Anno 1800 will return to the franchise’s historical roots, tasking players with building a productive Industrial Revolution society.


Starting April 12th, you can take an Anno 1800 Open Beta for a spin, letting you sample several hours of content from the full game. The event ends April 14th, and Open Beta pre-loads are available now on UPlay to maximise your play time.

To ensure the best possible experience in both the Open Beta and complete game, download and install our new Game Ready Driver.
