A trimuphant return to the series' historical roots, Anno 1800 has already received its first post-launch update. However, while it did come with a handful of fixes, some players are now reporting crashes tied to a Anno 1800 DirectX error.
Here's what we know about the Anno 1800 DirectX Error and whether or not there's a fix for it at the moment.
Anno 1800 DirectX error
The Anno 1800 DirectX error in question manifests as a crash at random moments during gameplay, followed by a "an unexpected DirectX error occurred" message.
A specific cause for the Anno 1800 DirectX error hasn't yet been identified, however, support forum threads link it to a number of things, including repeated attempts at starting a new game session after playing for a long time, as well as Nvidia and Intel hardware.
While there doesn't seem to be a fix for the Anno 1800 DirectX error at the moment, it's safe to say that Ubisoft are aware of it, making it plausible that a fix for it will come in a later update.
