Today, Ubisoft announced that Anno 1800, the latest installment in the successful city-building and strategic franchise, is releasing the second DLC of the Season 2 Pass: Bright Harvest, on Windows PC. Bright Harvest will allow players to bring the wonders of mechanized farming to the countryside, as these new functionalities will help boost the efficiency of their empire’s farming efforts to the next level.
Players will have the opportunity to massively increase productivity across all their farms in the Old and New World, featuring new innovations such as tractors and fodder silos. These new innovations will work across all game sessions increasing the efficiency of regular and animal farms in all corners of their empire. These new inventions involve new challenges and will require players to re-think their city layouts, by constructing new buildings such as fuel stations, which produce fuel for the tractors.
Players will also be able to make their cities even more lifelike with a selection of new agricultural and industrial ornaments. In addition, they may prove their farming prowess with five new Challenges and three new Ubisoft Club Rewards to unlock. Alongside the Bright Harvest DLC, Anno 1800 will also receive the free Game Update 8 which introduces new upgrades for the Kontors in both Old and New World sessions, as well as several balance changes.
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 in 2019, 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, Bright Harvest, the Season 2 Pass and the Anno 1800: Complete Edition (which includes the main game, the Season 1 & 2 Passes and the Digital Deluxe Pack, which contains an AI character, The Anarchist, along with the game soundtrack, an art book and exclusive company logos) are available digitally on the Ubisoft Store for Windows PC. Bright Harvest can be purchased as part of the Anno 1800 Season 2 Pass for $24.99 USD or individually for $6.99 USD and is downloadable for players who already own the Season Pass.
