Union Update – Ubisoft Forward & other news

Hey Anno Community,

As we are getting closer to the release of “Empire of the Skies” and after an interesting weekend with Ubisoft Forward, we thought it was time for a quick recap on our news and more.

Ubisoft Forward

Last Saturday, you might have noticed two friendly faces during the Ubisoft Forward Pre-Show: Oliver, our ComDev, together with Lisa, our Junior International Product Manager, presented a teaser for “New World Rising”. In case you missed it, you can watch our segment right here!

What do you think is hiding under that veil? Let us know in the comments below!

A recap on everything “Empire of the Skies”

In the past few weeks, we’ve published three different DevBlogs dedicated to DLC11, to give you all the information you need to start your sky-bound adventures on September 20th.

The first DevBlog is entirely dedicated to Airships: from our concept art to 3D models and the different types of Airship you can build.

The second DevBlog, instead, is dedicated to “Empire of the Skies” as a whole: new production chains, airship platforms and modules, drop goods and mails.

Last but not least, a DevBlog dedicated to the second Scenario of Season 4, “Clash of Couriers”: learn all about the goals and challenges of this new scenario and help Paloma Valente win the Grand Postal Derby!

Release Notes & Early Access phase

Game Update 15 will be released next Tuesday, September 20th. It will add support for DLC11, together with bug fixes, balancing and general improvements. Furthermore, some new features and content will be added, such as new Items (tied to different DLCs), new Harbour weapons, and the brand-new Lifestyle Needs we mentioned in our DevBlogs and DevStream. The full Release Notes will be published next Thursday, so keep an eye on the Anno Union!

On Friday, the Early Access phase for DLC 11 will start, together with a Twitch Drops event. Read here for all info.

Anno 2070

Since Update 3.0, we have seen some reports of owned DLCs being missing for some players. We are aware of the issue, and we are currently investigating it. Thank you for your patience.

    The topic who expelled the kings from the southern lands now needs to gather somewhere, vote, choose a leader.

    The first one looked like new Island or some sort of land with mountain shapes.

    I was very surprised that there are problems in Anno 2070 after the 3.0 update. It’s just that after the 3.0 patch was released, I launched the game and was glad that everything was working as before. And today I read the news that there are problems and decided to launch the game and saw that it simply does not work, crashes immediately after the video intro, even before the menu does not load…

    Just came here to say that the trailer is absolutely gorgeous.

    I suppose that might be a new upper class house for the New World and the arena seems to be like bull fighting or rather maybe some Gladiator….just a guess. But excited anyway thanks for the hard work

    My guess… a bullfighting arena.

    ¿Debajo del velo? Una plaza de toros y la vivienda del nuevo nivel residencial (si tenemos jornaleros y obreros, nos faltan los patronos).

    New tier resident!Can wait to see something fresh in the new world.The rotunda looks like arena or colosseum, bet it is the new public service of new tier.
    Curious how the workforce will become after the new tier.For now all supply demand two old tiers, if the new tier can’t replace them, their situation will become a little embrassing

    Lovely that we could already hear a preview of the new music!! Greetings and congrats to your composers 😀 Anno music is what first got me into the game <3
