First update arriving later this month.
Anno 1800, Ubisoft’s acclaimed Industrial-Revolution-era city builder, is getting a third season of paid DLC, introducing the likes of harbour trading, tourism, and skyscraper-packed cities over the course of three major updates.
The first of these, titled Docklands, arrives later this month on 23rd February, granting players the ability to build their own modular warehouse districts and to try their hand at export trading for the first time. A new NPC, Captain Tobias Morris, provides assistance as players strive to become the market leader, serving as the link to companies around the world.
Anno 1800’s second helping of Season 3 content, Tourist Season, arrives in “spring” and, as you might well imagine, introduces tourism as a mechanic. Here, players are given the tools to turn their city into a top-tier entertainment destination – and to keep visitors happy through the likes of world-class dining experiences and by establishing other enriching activities, such as a tour bus network so tourists can take in the sights.
Season 3’s third and final content update, The High Life, is scheduled to arrive some time this summer and will give players the opportunity to build sprawling cities of towering skyscrapers. Additional commercial goods and malls will provide new ways to satisfy citzens’ demands, and it’ll be possible to customise Old World session with new elements, including monuments, hotel, restaurants, buildings, and malls.
Ubisoft notes that each paid update will arrive alongside a free component designed to improve the core gaming experience for all players.
All three DLC packs will be available to purchase individually or as part of Anno 1800’s £16.99 Season 3 Pass. Ubisoft has also introduced two new bundles to accompany this third season of content: the Gold Edition Year 3 – which features the base game, Deluxe pack, and Season 3 Pass – and the Complete Edition Year 3, which also includes Anno 1800’s first two season passes.
