View Full Version : DoD and Anno 1404: Venice - compatible?

I bought Dawn of Discovery from the Steam store (with my Australian account) during the last New Year Sale.

However it seems that since then, Steam has changed versions and Australians can only buy the Anno 1404 version of the game, including being limited to Anno 1404: Venice.

So given that I've got Dawn of Discovery, can I buy Anno 1404: Venice, or will there be compatibility issues?

Can't

DoD is the North American version and it is different than Anno 1404 which is the version for everyone else. You'll need the dawn of discovery: venice version for it to work correctly with dawn of discovery version you bought from steam.

Sounds like you'll have to just purchase the anno 1404 gold version.

I don't see the Gold version in Steam, just Anno 1404 and Anno 1404:Venice.

Plus I don't think I should have to pay for Steam's mistake.

You may be right about not seeing a bundle gold version. It would appear that Ubisoft being the stellar publisher they are didn't make a bundle deal outside of North America.

As for steam's mistake, that's certainly debatable on who's really at fault either steam or ubisoft but either way it's not going to happen legally.

Here is a link to the USA store and I don't know if this will help:

yeah the australian link redirects to http://store.steampowered.com/app/33350/ which is incompadible with the expansion in the Australian steam store.

I submitted a support ticket.
Hopefully will be fixed soon

hi,

I got a DoD copy as well, but the DoD and venice have been replaced with Anno 1440,

I wonder if Anno 1440 Venice works on my Dawn of Discovery as main game?
