Ubisoft and Blue Byte released the new Anno 2205 Veteran’s Pack, which is free for all players, along with detailing future add-ons.
The Veteran’s Pack offers challenges for experienced Anno players and introduces new features, such as additional quest types, user interface options and ornaments. The add-on features an harder difficulty mode, pushing players to their limits where more careful planning is required to grow their corporations.
Players can adapt the new difficulty settings to their existing profiles or start a new corporation from scratch. They will also experience new types of quests, a community-requested quick view mode for all buildings in the sector, and the option to exclude certain goods from consumption. Three new ornaments allow players to make their cities more diversified and performance updates such as improved start and loading times are included as well.
Another DLC pack will be made available next month for free. Called Big Five Pack, this new add-on will bring the Economic Warfare feature to the game. Players will have to battle for shares of the five most successful competitive corporations along with defending their own corporation’s shares. Additionally, new Sector Effects can add a permanent or temporary positive or negative effect to players’ sectors.
There’s also a new DLC pack planned for June. Dubbed Orbit, the new add-on will allow players to build their own modular space station, which offers a brand-new science and research system to upgrade different areas in their corporations. June’s DLC offering is included in the Season pass or be purchased separately.
