    Pretty pretty please can you guys add season passes to Consol?!?! This game is way too good not to! I think I can speak for everyone that plays it. It is so addicting, but definitely needs more Content. So please !?!?!?!?!? We are beginning you! Thanks and have a blessed day.
    P.s. keep up the amazing work!

    Guten Tag zusammen. Habe eine Frage. Kommt ein Update für Anno 1800 für ps5 noch. Wäre gut. Gibt ein Fehler beim Multiplayer Modus. Er zeigt LR40 Fehlercode an und es gibt ein Synchronisierungsfehler im Multiplayer

    I do agree with other’s sentiments on the recent posts: why are we not getting the dlcs? They have become such a big part of the PC experience the game feels incomplete without at least a few of them. I can sympathize with the idea of getting the base game ported first, but immediately stating there won’t be any content-dlcs ported over as well feels like a poor decision that should hurt Console Edition sales in the long run. Especially as you could have surely sold them again on console with fairly little gripes created.

    Also, some of the large, TV-focussed UI elements are just ridiculous. The ship UI especially doesn’t carry that much information most of the time, and its elements aren’t much enlarged either, so it creates a claustrophobic experience with what little of screen you have left for little to no reason, it feels like.

    I’ve followed this game via Youtubers like Raptor and Taka over the last few years. I ordered the console copy as soon as it became available. I really hope the developers release the DLCs. Both the Xbox and PS5 meet the equivalent PC requirements to run the full game at 30 fps, so they are capable of running the additional sessions in my opinion. I’m sure most users on here would happily pay for the DLCs. It would be easy money for the developers compared to making a new game.

    I really saw that we will not have any future DLC. We won’t have tractors, silos, students… It’s just a totally basic game, running at a frustrating 30FPS. I’m a big fan of the series, having all the games and all the DLC’s and CDLC’s, but today I feel very sad and disappointed. I counted down the days to see the console version, but was I worried about not having keyboard/mouse accessibility, but without the expansions? I really wanted to have the game running in 4K with at least 60FPS on my gaming TV, a feature I don’t have on my PC, but now I’ve really given up on my dream. I will not buy the console version, and I just bought a 144hz monitor but without 4K, so I will not enjoy what I always wanted in the ANNO 1800.

    I’ve already started testing the console beta version and many things have occurred to me that are different between console edition and pc edition. Is there no way to change the time of day? Why is it that every time we perform a camera zoom, the game takes noticeable seconds to render the building textures? Where are the DLC’s? Do they only have CDLC’s?
