ANNO 2205: free DLC Wildwater Bay now available
EXPAND YOUR CORPORATION ONTO THE BIGGEST TEMPERATE EARTH SESSION AND SOLVE THE RIDDLE OF THE ABANDONED UNDERWATER CITIES
London, UK– January 20, 2016 – Today, Blue Byte® and Ubisoft® announced the release of the first Anno 2205TM DLC, “Wildwater Bay,” a new Temperate Earth session which is free for everyone who owns the game. The new session comes with the latest Anno 2205 patch and offers new content and optimisations.
In Wildwater Bay, players can expand their corporation onto a large continental area with several islands at its shore, resulting in the biggest session of Anno 2205 so far with a size of roughly 100,000 acres. The monumental size will help players in acquiring additional costal and mountain slots. The new sector quest focuses on the mystery of the abandoned underwater cities from the previous Anno title, so veteran players will be able to meet relics from the past.
In addition to the Wildwater Bay session, three new ornaments have been added, as well as a new ability to the Corporation HQ, which can now increase the overall public building supply capacity of all types. Players will also profit from a clearer World Market interface and the special “Big 5” events.
Wildwater Bay is the first free DLC for Anno 2205 to be released in 2016 with further free DLCs planned. The next big update will be the “Tundra” expansion, coming at the end of February, which is part of the season pass and will also be able to purchase separately.
