Ubisoft just announced a slate of updates for Anno 1800. Following the launch of Sunken Treasure DLC a few weeks ago, Botanica will hit on September 10. On top of that, you’ll be able to get into a free trial for the game during Gamescom, and this will even give you a preview of some new features scheduled for a future update.

The Anno 1800 trial is currently available on both Uplay and the Epic Games store, until August 25. It’s not quite a fully-featured experience, as it only offers the first three tiers of sandbox mode – but you will be able to play multiplayer. You’ll also get a chance to check out the new day/night cycle in this trial, which is scheduled to hit the full game for free alongside the Botanica DLC.


Botanica will let you build a Botanical Garden, which opens up a whole new world of tourism possibilities, along with commensurate items and rewards. The DLC will also add a new Musical Pavilion that’ll play tracks from previous Anno games as you’re building your city.
