I see there's a FAQ about Anno 1404 pinned in this forum, and several threads talking about it... but I can't find the game for sale here on Steam!

Has it been removed? If so, does anybody knows why, and whether it will be added back to the Steam catalog at some point?

Thanks.

Check out this thread (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2676440). Or this one (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2655805).

But to summarize, I don't think anyone is 100% certain why the game was removed. To the best of my knowledge it was because the Steam version of the game stopped being supported so non-Steam versions were a patch ahead. I believe this is a breach of contract for selling your game on Steam.

Thank you very much for the reply (and for not bashing me for not looking a little more in the forum prior to posting) :)

I think I'll buy it retail, as it looks like a very nice and cheaper alternative to 2070 - I just hope it doesn't have that draconian DRM too.

Buy the 1404 Gold Edition and run the 3.1 update before you run the game. Once update there is no activation or key needed. You can put it on as many computers you want.

Once you have played it and want to try something new. Try the Iaam mod for it.
