The community has been clamoring for an African-inspired session in Anno 1800 ever since was first announced that the game would be using the Session system, way back in 2017. Good things come to those who wait, Anno 1800: Land of Lions will be the biggest DLC for Anno 1800, including a new session and continent, new citizen tiers, buildings, production chains and quests. In a new storyline, you will travel to the drylands to join up with Emperor Ketema, as he works to turn his lands green.
You will do so using the new irrigation system, making smart use of what little existing water there is on the map to construct a network of canals and fertile patches of soil. Anno veterans will notice similarities to Anno 1404’s Noria, though Land of Lions puts an all-new spin on the timeless fantasy of making the desert bloom. The developers also listened to feedback regarding the Passage, and rest assured that Anno 1800: Land of Lions will have a deeper impact on things in the old world!
