Today, Ubisoft announced that Anno 1800™, the latest installment in the successful city-building and strategic franchise, is releasing the first DLC of the Season 2 Pass: Seat of Power, on Windows PC. In addition, all Anno 1800 players will benefit from a free update optimizing the influence system.
Seat of Power will allow players to construct a magnificent palace, establishing it as the heart of their industrial empire. The palace will have a profound impact on life in their capital. The building will house several departments giving access to passive bonuses and policies to boost the city’s economy. The palace consists of one main building and a variety of modules which players will be able to choose different styles for.
In addition, a free update for all Anno 1800 players releases today, which will impact the influence system. Three separate difficulty tiers will be added to the system, meaning players will now be able to choose the amount of influence they want to earn. The change is also possible for existing save games.
Developed by Ubisoft Mainz, Anno 1800 provides players with countless opportunities to prove their skills as a ruler. Players can create huge metropolises, plan efficient logistics networks, settle an exotic new continent, send out global expeditions, and dominate their opponents by diplomacy, trade or warfare. Since its launch, Anno 1800 managed to attract more than 1 million players, making it the fastest selling game of the franchise to date.
For more than two years, Anno 1800 has invited players to take part in the creation and the development of the game by giving feedback through the Anno Union. So far, more than 200 blogs have been published, 18,000 comments posted and 5 community contests organized. This collaboration between players and the studio enables the development team to shape the game and add requested community features.
Anno 1800, Seat of Power, the Season 2 Pass and the Anno 1800: Complete Edition are available digitally on the Epic Games store and the Ubisoft Store for Windows PC. Seat of Power can be purchased as part of the Anno 1800 Season 2 Pass for $24.99 USD or individually for $9.99 USD, and is downloadable for players who already own the Season Pass.
