Today, Ubisoft announced that a Season 4 Pass will be released for Anno 1800. Composed of 3 DLCs, “Seeds of Change”, “Empire of the Skies” and “New World Rising”, the Season 4 Pass will invite players to discover alternative means of agricultural production, pioneer aviation and lead a new tier of the New World’s population. In addition, a new scenario will challenge players with each DLC, bringing in new missions and game mechanics, and three exclusive ornaments will be available from April 12th, 2022.
“Seeds of Change” is the first DLC from Season 4, releasing on April 12th, 2022. Anno fans will be able to build powerful New World haciendas and own their own country estate to produce agricultural goods. Maximizing productivity, establishing island policies and strengthening the inhabitants’ independence by farming goods that previously needed to be imported are at the core of the DLC experience. With the “Seasons of Silver” scenario, players will be challenged to establish a complex silver production chain from the ground up, while dealing with changing seasons.
The Season 4 Pass will also introduce players to new ways to use airships with “Empire of the Skies”, scheduled for Summer 2022. From the transportation of mail, goods and workers to aerial battles, the skies will expand the players’ possibilities. Finally, coming in Late 2022, “New World Rising” will add a brand-new population tier and more islands to the New World. Additional information for each DLC will be released in the weeks leading up to their launch.
There are two Anno 1800 Year 4 editions available as of today:
- Complete Edition Year 4: Features main game, Deluxe Pack, and all 4 Season Passes
- Gold Edition Year 4: Features main game, Deluxe Pack, and Season 4 Pass
These two editions are now available and replacing the old editions. In addition to the three DLCs, Anno 1800 will also receive free Game Updates to accompany each DLC release, which will focus on improving the game even more.
With the release of “Seeds of Change”, players will also have the opportunity to test Anno 1800 (full base game) free of charge from April 12th to April 19th, as part of a Free Week.
Developed by Ubisoft Mainz, Anno 1800 has allowed players to evolve and gain new skills as a ruler. Players can create their cities –big or small– plan efficient logistics networks, settle new continents, send out global expeditions, and dominate their opponents with diplomacy, trade, warfare and tourism.
By the end of 2021, the game reached more than 2 million players. Since its creation, Anno 1800 has been dedicated to incorporating the Anno community into its thinking process. Many ideas mentioned by fans –like additional New World content in the case of Season 4– find their way into the game. This collaboration between players and the studio is essential for the development team, to create a pleasant gaming experience tailored to every fan.
