Twitch Drops & Early Access: Seeds of Change

Hey Anno Community,

Last week we revealed our plans for Season 4 live on stream – you can check out the VOD here if you missed it – and showed some first gameplay of DLC 10 – Seeds of Change.

As usual, the release will be accompanied by a Twitch Drops event from which you can earn two DLC-themed ornaments. The whole event will start on April 8th at 3 PM UTC+2 and last until April 20th and we got all information for you below:

Expanding the Twitch Drops

This year we’re doing some changes to how we handle the Twitch Drops:

If you’re an Anno 1800 streamer on Twitch, you can simply sign up for the Twitch Drops and participate. For this, simply head to this page for your Twitch account, make sure to connect it with your Ubisoft account, and opt-in to the drops. You can find more info on Twitch Drops in this official FAQ from Twitch. When you stream Anno 1800 during the mentioned period, your viewers will be able to earn drops.


Additionally, we will have an early access period for selected streamers as usual. These streamers will be able to play the content of the new DLC – including the scenario – from Friday, April 8th, until the release on Tuesday, April 12th. So, if you can’t wait to see more of DLC 10 as soon as possible, that’s the way to get a look at even more gameplay (and also earn the mentioned Twitch Drops).

Earning Drops

Anyone watching any of the streamers who signed up for the Twitch Drops event, regardless if they’re part of the Early Access or not, will receive two new ornaments:

A “Seeds of Change” Banner for watching 1 hour and a “Seeds of Change” Mural for watching 3 hours.

The only thing you need to do is to first link your Ubisoft account to your Twitch account and then watch the streamers during the event for the mentioned time to receive your loot. You don’t have to watch these hours consecutively to receive your drop; watching them accumulated on participating streamers will also grant you the ornaments.

After receiving a drop, you need to claim it via the Twitch inventory. You can find more information on Twitch Drops in general in this official FAQ.

Please be aware that all rewards will only be delivered to you after the release of DLC 10.

If you haven’t already done so in the past, make sure to first link your Ubisoft and Twitch account by following the steps outlined on this website.

To check which streamers are participating just have a look at the Anno 1800 category between April 8th and April 20th.

    I have both drops claimed in my Twitch inventory but they won’t show up in my Ubisoft inventory.
    I’ve read it might not be immediate but it’s been 3 days (after DLC release) and I’m wondering if this is normal or I did something wrong.

    Been watching for a decent 6 hours now….yet the drop timer says I’m in for 70% on an Hour and 23% on 3 hours….whats up with that?

    • U Ubi_MarcelH April 11, 2022

      Good question- make sure that the streams you are watching are showing both “Anno 1800” and “Drops enabled”. Beyond that, this sounds more like a Twitch issue, and not something we can help with unfortunately.

    What about all the previous Twitch Drops from seasons 2-3? Will they be made available to all players?

      Currently, we do not plan to release old Twitch Drops separately.

    Will there be at least one streamer in French language. Otherwise you will have disappointed one of your players.
    Thank you for your reply.

      Hey there,
      yes, there will also be French streamers as we had for (I believe) almost all previous events 🙂

      I just watched a German stream and let it run for 3 hours without sound….

    Est ce qu’il y aura au moins un streamer en langue française. Dans le cas contraire vous aurez décu un de vos joueurs.
    Merci de votre réponse.

    I think that if there are selected streamers online who have access to the DLC, that it will be obvious who have access because these streamers will have the most visitors of course. However when there are no selected streamers online and only “regular” Twitch streamers, then I think the question that will be most asked in the chat of that stream is if that person has the DLC. Especially since so far only those selected streamers had Twitch drops enabled. I think this will lead to a lot of confusion. I have to say that I don’t see a point in watching a Twitch stream from somebody who does not have the DLC if there are at that moment also people online with the DLC.
