    I literally bought Anno 1800 Console Edition some days ago and I’m already buying DLCs.
    I bought it “just to try it” — not expecting “too much” from it — and I was very surprised on how the game is fun and cool (and note that I’m VERY picky).

    The game didn’t give me the “creator freedom” that I was expecting (exemples: we cannot build diagonal roads, the 90 degree railway “curves” are stupidly weird, etc, etc, etc) but the other parts/aspects of the game make it completely worth it (all the managing stuff, trading, etc, etc).

    I’m playing on Xbox Series X and I’m 100% new to the game AND the franchise (I never played an Anno game before).

    I’m here just to say that I absolutely hope you guys release on consoles everything you have released on PC until this moment.
    If you don’t do it (and only release the “cosmetic DLCs” on consoles), you’ll literally push new console-players — including me — away from the franchise.

    Yes, I do have a PC that I could use to play Anno 1800, but I CHOSE to play it on console.
    I have the “privilege to choose”, but not everyone has it, since a lot of people don’t have a gaming PC.

    The current-gen consoles have more-than-enough power to handle the game, so I cannot see any plausible explanation for you not releasing on consoles all the content already available on PC.
    And please note that I’m not even talking about mods here (although they would be very welcome on consoles too), I’m only talking about the vanilla game experience (with all DLCs).

    I was watching some videos recently and I realized that there are a lot of DLCs on PC that bring A LOT of new mechanics to the game — for example: the skyscrapers.
    Why cannot console players have all those cool/fun things/mechanics too? I’m sorry, but it doesn’t make any sense, at all.

    We — console players — deserve some respect; after all, we’re paying for your game too. If you couldn’t offer the same experience for console players (same as on PC), you shouldn’t have released it on consoles at all.

    So, please… be considerate of console players (both types: the ones who CHOOSE to play on console and the ones who can only play on console) and release all the PC-already-available-DLCs for Xbox and PlayStation too.

    5GB update for nothing is crazy. And no mod support for console? Why?
