Union Update: We are back & GU 13.1

Hey Anno Community, 

We hope 2022 has been treating you well so far. What better way to start the New Year than having a quick look at our plans for the weeks and months to come? Let’s have a look at them together!  

GU 13.1 News 

Game Update 13.1 will be released next Tuesday, January 18th. GU 13.1 will address several of the issues you have been reporting GU 13. The full release notes will be shared here on the Anno Union closer to its release since we’re currently still running final tests. 

A huge thank you again for helping us with reports, screenshots and descriptions of the issues occurring since GU 13. 

Short 2022 Preview 

As you might already know, Season 4 is coming to Anno 1800 this year! 2022 is all about the New World and we cannot wait for you to see what we have in store for you. We will share more on Season 4 in March – so, watch this space! 

In the meantime, get ready for some exciting news related to our upcoming Cosmetic DLCs. We might reveal something very soon… 


Let’s kick off the new year with a livestream: Join us on Friday, 14th January, on Twitch for this year’s first Anno Afternoon. Community Developer Oliver and Community Manager Celeste will play some Anno 1800 co-op. The stream will start at 5PM CET, see you there!  

Community Spotlight 

Our first pick of the day is this lovely screenshot shared by Pyronite on Discord: the depth of the shot and the dusk atmosphere make those neon signs pop – we think this is a great way to use the skins of the new Cosmetic DLC “Vibrant Cities Pack”. 

Augustus_Johnson titled “Fresh Colours” this collection of screenshots – we love the contrast of the different colours! And right at the centre of this screenshot you can see a Ceiba Tree ornament, available through the “Plant a Tree” DLC. 

Last but not leastRooonaldooo99 shared this amazing screenshot on Reddit, showing off most of the new skins for the buildingsGreat job! 

That is all for today’s Union Update. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to write a comment below or reach out to us on Twitter, Facebook or our official forums.

    Thank you for the update,
    I am eagerly awaiting the fix to begin the Eden scenario !
    And by the way, this is kind of off topic, but would there be a possibility that the next scenario show the roots of the Global Trust… ?
    If that would be the case, i have a very special hunch it could involve some ”ex-Pyrphorians” …. hmmm…

      The scenario system does provide a great basis to explore different stories in a separate environment, yeah, and we already have some ideas on what we want to do – some more ideas can’t hurt, of course.
      For “Eden Burning” it made sense to reference some aspects of Anno 2070 but we do not necessarily go further down that road in other scenarios. More details on scenarios in the coming months.
