Union Update: Happy Easter
You asked us earlier if we plan to add new things to the game after the big release and last week, we let the cat out of the bag (gentle-cat doesn’t mind) about our season pass and free updates during the post launch of Anno 1800. With our announcement of the season pass, we also recorded a video for all of you where we talk about our plans to expand the world of Anno 1800.
Luckily, Basti was far from alone with our small release celebration on Twitch. Thank you to everyone who joined our rather spontaneous stream, we had a “jolly” good time especially thanks to so many Union members chatting with us during the show.
And when we kicked off the party, we released our third Union Talk video which was, of course, pre-recorded. (Just because some folks in the chat asked us questions).
And in case you missed the whole party stream, you can watch it now here:

Last but not least, let’s talk about your feedback and reports.
Patch incoming after the easter weekend
We are working on a patch update to fix some of the issues you reported to us. The patch will hit next week on April 25 and here are the patchnotes:
ANNO 1800 – Patchnotes (Patch 01, coming 25.04.2019)
Fixed several crashes.
Fixed several Multiplayer Desyncs.
Fixed an issue for the Steam version, that made the games FPS drop significantly.
Fixed a rare issue, getting no further quests, after loading a savegame that has been created while a Newspaper was displayed.
Added some balancing fixes:
- Diplomacy: Lowered the cooldown of “Flattering” and “Gifting” from 60 mins to 30 mins.
- Diplomacy: Negotiations in the late game now cost ~70% less.
- Visitors: Visitors are now more generous (Visitor income increased by 50%).
We will continue to improve the game in the future so keep up the good work and share your feedback in the Ubisoft Anno forum. With that being said, we had an incredibly exciting, successful as well as very busy first launch week. As there are two bank holidays about to come up in Germany, we will recharge our batteries in over the long weekend and will be back in the studio next week Tuesday.
Thanks to all members of the Anno Union for that incredible launch week and keep in mind: leave the PC once in a while to get a coffee or to stretch your legs!
