The Ubisoft Forums
announce the first content update is now available for Anno 2070
, the recently released strategy sequel (thanks Gamer's Hell
). This "New Eden" package is focused on a persistent economy, and unlocks the game's new in-game shop, which offers the chance to purchase new premium content. There are a number of other additions and changes as well, which are outlined in the Steam news article
on the topic. Word is: "The Eden Initiative wants the player to settle a new sector without decreasing its eco balance in order to create a new utopia. Fulfilling the world event generates access to the former technology, which needs to be developed in the academy afterwards. This powerful tool will have a very positive effect on the ecobalance."
