Anno 2025, Blue Byte's futuristic citybuilder/management sim, has just received its final expansion - Frontiers. Given the rather descriptive name it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that Frontiers brings with it three brand new regions to explore and conquer: the tiny and widly spread Madrigal Islands, the frosty and inhospitable Savik Province, and the lush forests of the Greentide Archipelago.
What you might not so easily guess from the title, however, is that Frontiers brings with it one more massive addition into Anno 2025 - Synthetics. This combination of man and machine will present players with a rather unique challenge given how many resources are needed for their 'construction', but should you manage to master the process you will be rewarded with an extremely efficient workforce - the likes of which the world has never seen before!
And speaking of seeing, if you're wondering what all of this might look like in terms of gameplay, here's the recently posted launch trailer:
While the DLC itself is mostly well received, especially when it comes to the addition of new sectors and warfare options, the people online aren't as happy with Ubisoft and their behavior... to put things lightly. As it turns out, Ubisoft promised that the Anno 2025 Season Pass would contain every single DLC for the game, which as you can probably guess has not ended up being the case given that Frontiers is now being sold separately. Not really the best way of sending off Anno 2025, now is it?
If you don't mind all of the controversy, however, and just want to play even more Anno, you can find the DLC for €12 over at Steam. Have fun!
