Anno 1800’s next DLC, Empire of the Skies, is available now
Starting today, Anno 1800 players can elevate their aerial mastery with new airships that enable them to transfer workforce and conquer opponent’s islands, in Empire of the Skies, the second DLC of Anno 1800’s fourth season. In the New World session, players are now able to use new constructions materials. Players can discover new anti-air technologies, a new scenario, and the introduction of a mail system.
Players can use new construction materials such as aluminum and helium and create five new advanced airships that can be used for both civilian and military purposes. They also can benefit from the opportunity to transfer workforce with airships and allow their residents all around the world to stay in contact with each other through an innovative mail system. Finally, players can take advantage of military airships to attack enemy vehicles and harbors and use anti-aircraft defenses to protect their island from enemy attacks. Building and organizing the airships will also need the airships hangar which has multiple building phases and the landing platform which comes with three new modules to attach to.
The all-new scenario mission “Clash of Couriers” will have players establish an independent mail delivery service in the New World and tell them the story of Paloma Valente, the airships inventor. One of the challenges players must overcome in the scenario is that there will be no regular ships available, and they must use airships.
Accompanying the release of Empire of the Skies, Anno 1800 is publishing a free Game Update which offers players quality of life improvements such as updates when interacting with neutral traders and changes to the military system.
Anno 1800 is available on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store. Players can also subscribe to Ubisoft+ and enjoy all Season Pass content on Anno 1800 Day 1. Empire of the Skies can be purchased for 11.99 euros, or as part of the Season 4 Pass for 24.99 euros, saving 10 euros on the total price of individual DLCs.
