Hard Sci-Fi: Anno 2205 Patch Adds Veteran Difficulty

The Moon isn't all sunshine and roses, you know. Nights last two weeks, for starters, and you can't grow roses in cheese.

Back in my day, running a corporation spanning the Earth and Moon took real guts, real gumption, real sleeve garters. Nowadays they simply hand you the Moon on a stick, and a shiny gold star too. True story.

If you’ve wished Anno 2205 [official site] presented more of a challenge, you might fancy another look after today’s patch. Version 1.5 has added Veteran Mode, which… makes it more difficult. The update also brings new quest types, performance improvements, bug fixes, and other patchy sorts of things.

Players can convert existing corporations to the new Veteran difficulty presets, but it’s a one-way process so think twice before going for it. Hit the patch notes for the full scoop on everything, which include new assignments, new ornaments, interface tweaks, and plenty of other jazz.

Another free update, named the Big Five Pack, is due to add economic warfare in June. Ubi say:

“Here, players have to battle for shares of the Big Five, the five most successful competitive corporations, but they also need to defend their own corporation’s shares. Moreover, new Sector Effects can add a permanent or temporary positive or negative effect to players’ sectors.”

June will also bring the Orbit DLC, which introduces space stations. Not a freebie, that one.
