Anno 1800 Season 2 Begins This Month; Free Weekend Nears

Ubisoft announces Season 3 for Anno 1800 kicks off on March 24th with the launch of Season of Power, the first of three Season 2 DLC releases. This will come along with a free update for the city-building strategy game, and this post has all the details on that, all three DLCs, and the Season 2 Pass, which is now available for purchase. They also announce they are celebrating the game having sold over one million units since launch with a free weekend starting Thursday. Here's a summary of all these plans:
Today, Ubisoft announced that Anno 1800™, the latest installment in the successful city-building and strategic franchise, will get a Season 2 Pass including three new major DLCs to be released in 2020. The first one, Seat of Power, will launch on March 24. In addition, Ubisoft announced the game has reached more than 1 million players* around the world. Released on April 16, 2019 for Windows PC, Anno 1800 was already the fastest selling Anno game at launch and was able to consistently expand to new players throughout 2019 and will continue to do so in 2020. To celebrate this milestone, all Anno 1800 players will receive a unique free ornament** today and everyone will be able to discover Anno 1800 for free from March 12 to March 15.

“Our team at Ubisoft Mainz is extremely happy about the results of Anno 1800 so far and thanks to the constant feedback by the community, we are highly motivated to bring new content to the Anno brand in 2020”, says David Wightman, Studio Manager at Ubisoft Mainz.

With the Season 2 Pass, players will have access to new adventures, challenges, and tools as they shape their very own Industrial Revolution. The Season 2 Pass includes the three following DLCs to be released throughout 2020:

  • Seat of Power: Players will be able to show off their city’s power with a prestigious palace and government departments that can boost their economy with a variety of policies. Seat of Power will be available on March 24.
  • Bright Harvest: In this DLC, players will have the opportunity to bring the wonders of mechanized farming to the countryside as they boost the efficiency of their farms with tractors and more.
  • Land of Lions: Players will travel to the Southern continent and join forces with an embattled emperor to bring life to the desert using the new irrigation system.
  • Three Exclusive Themed Ornaments: Finally, Season 2 Pass owners will get access to exclusive ornaments available alongside the first DLC Seat of Power.

To celebrate the 1 million players milestone achieved within the first 9 months of lifetime back in December 2019, players will receive a unique ornament directly in Anno 1800.

In addition, beginning Thursday March 12 until Sunday March 15***, players will be able to discover Anno 1800 (including Tiers 1 to Tiers 3 and co-op mode) for free on Uplay and the Epic Games Store.

*Including all distribution platforms and Uplay+. Not including pre-launch beta tests and trial versions. Anno 1800 has reached 1M players within the first 9 months of launch in December 2019.
**All Anno 1800 players will receive an exclusive free ornament with the next update today directly in Anno 1800.

Believe there's a typo in the first sentence, though I'm new to Anno so it's possible there's not.
