Ubisoft announced that Anno 1800™, the latest installment from the successful city-building and strategic franchise, has released its second DLC, Botanica, on Windows PC. In addition, the day and night cycle free update has been released for all Anno 1800 players.
Botanica brings an additional cultural building project to the world of Anno 1800. The botanical garden is a feast for players’ eyes, with inviting green avenues and flowery compositions with wondrous and colourful exotic plants from far away. Botanica includes various sets of flora from around the world that can be used in the decorative garden modules.
The new DLC comes with over 21 unique botanical modules and one glasshouse module. In addition, 11 new ornaments such as flower beds and topiaries have been added, which are usable with all cultural buildings. New sets of plants have been added for the botanical garden with a total of 59 plants items. Players can also construct a new Musical Pavilion and enjoy beloved tracks from previous Anno games inside their city. In order to play Botanica, players must reach the 4th Civilization Level.
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 through diplomacy, trade or warfare. The Anno 1800 post-launch plan offers new adventures, challenges and tools to players. The Season Pass includes three DLCs to be released throughout the year including Sunken Treasures, Botanica and The Passage. In addition, regular updates will bring new free content available for all players.
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 160 blogs have been published, 15,000 comments posted and five 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 is available digitally through the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games store for Windows PC. The two first DLCs of Anno 1800, Sunken Treasures and Botanica, can be purchased as part of the Anno 1800 Season Pass. They are downloadable for players who already own the Season Pass.
