Anno 1800 is set to release not one, not two, but three DLC packs for 2020. The first one will be here in a few weeks on March 24, while the third DLC is expected to be the biggest the game has to offer.

There’s also going to be a free weekend beginning March 12 where anyone can try out Anno 1800. Hurry though, as the offer only lasts until March 15.

For the new DLCs, the first one is titled Seat of Power. Here players get the chance to build a palace as a symbol of their city’s power and might. However, the reality is that it’s more than just a symbol as the palace is going to have different departments that not only give passive bonuses, but can also influence how the city is actually managed.

The second is Bright Harvest, which is scheduled for Summer 2020. This DLC allows players to add tractors and other mechanized tools. This should increase the productivity of farms while labor is reduced. The team at Anno 1800 said in a post that “depending on how many farms you have, this could mean a whole lot more space on your islands, and we can’t wait to see what you do with it.” Completing the industrialization theme are the new farming-and-industry-themed ornaments that arrive with the DLC.

Finally, the third DLC is Land of Lions, which should release sometime in late 2020. Set to be the biggest DLC for Anno 1800, this one is African-inspired and is something that the community has long requested. The third DLC is going to bring a new session, new continent, and new citizen tiers. Players can also expect new buildings along with new production chains and quests. There’s also a new storyline where players need to travel to the South and ally with Emperor Ketema in the hopes of bringing irrigation to the desert.

The three upcoming DLCs are set to be released as part of the game’s Season 2 Pass, which is already available on Steam, Uplay, and Epic Games Store for $24.99. On March 24, those who by the Season 2 Pass also get three new exclusive ornaments which are “Palatial Column,” “Ploughman’s Glory,” and “Elephountain.”
