Anno 1404 Wiki


The campaign map.

Anno 1404 features a single-player story mode known as the Campaign. It tells the story of planned crusade-turned-plot to overthrow the Emperor. Besides introducing characters, it also doubles as a tutorial and introduction to the basics of Anno 1404 game-play.

It's recommended that new players play through the Campaign before trying the scenarios or continuous mode.

Note: The cities you build in each chapter do not carry over to the next chapter.

There are special medals and achievements awarded for completing the campaign on easy, medium, and hard (You only need to play on the hard difficulty to unlock all three) and for completing every single quest in every single story mission.


Each of the 8 chapters contains a certain static amount of quests that are each worth a certain amount of points. Upon completing each chapter a victory screen will be displayed that lists the total points you earned. There is an achievement for completing all quests in all chapters on hard, which unlocks a special title as well. This achievement is also needed to get "The Gold Ship" achievement.

Most quests you can't avoid and you'll complete as you play each chapter, but there are a number of missable sidequests. A few of these are very easy to miss. The walkthrough labels all sidequests and tells you how and when to complete them, but be aware that if you skip around in the walkthrough, you might miss them.
