Union Update: Happy New Year & Community Spotlight

Hey Anno Community,

A happy New Year from the Anno team – we hope you all had a great start into 2024!


We’re back at work after our holiday break, time to let you know what’s coming up in the next months.
First of all: expect a slower start in terms of news and blogs from us this year.

In early Spring we’ll have more information on the next Cosmetic DLC (including a livestream with our artist Laura), the theme of which may or may not have been “leaked” at the end of last year.

The boardgame enthusiasts among you can also look forward to an expansion to the Anno 1800 boardgame, also coming in Spring 2024. We’ll keep you updated on any news our friends at Kosmos have on this.

On the Twitch side of things, we would also love to continue some of the (multiplayer) savegames – for example for 2070 and 1800 – from last year. Let us know what you’d like to see from us on Twitch!

Finally, we still want to continue featuring anything YOU are creating, so, there will be Community Spotlights on specific mods, screenshots and videos shared by you and any other type of player created content.

In this spirit, here’s the first spotlight of 2024:

Community Spotlight

Let’s start with some mods recently uploaded to mod.io:

First, the “Balanced responders” by NumberNegative. A small mod in itself, but likely useful for fans of Muggenstuermer’s Fire Station, Police Station and Hospital. It rebalances the automatic responder units of those building.

For a little bit of additional British-ness, jje1000 has a new church skin for you: Wibblesock’s Parish gives you yet more visual variety – and you’re likely making Willie very happy!

For owners and fans of the “Land of Lions” DLC, the “Safari to Old Enbesa” mod by Lion053 has already been a go-to mod for a while. Reason enough to highlight it again now that it’s on mod.io – together with the “Enbesa Tourism” mod by the same author.

Over on Reddit, wannabegansta123 shared impressions from several of their cities, all with a unique twist and style. We decided to feature the one titled “Engineer’s Respite” here today, but make sure to check the post on Reddit for more examples.

And last but not least, we loved this cute little “potato island” that Nikolai Dante shared on Discord. As you know, potatoes are extremely versatile: you can boil them, mash them, put them in a stew…

    Dear Ubisoft,
    as a last update, could you please update fsr to fsr3 and integrate frame generation for better performances? This would help playing the game especially for those with all DLCs and endgame scenarios.
    Thanks in advance

      Hey there,
      we’re not planning any more updates for Anno 1800, I’m afraid, and this plus the efforts involved in integrating newer versions of FSR into the game mean that the answer to your question is “no”.
      Thank you for understanding.

    My group and I have been away for a little bit, but are looking forward to jumping back into Anno 1800 soon. We do a big co-op game against the computer opponents.

    Also, I’ll have to pick up the Anno 1800 board game expansion! Looking forward to hearing more about it.

    We all hope that at gamescon there will be the announcement of the new Anno game
