In the blog entry mentioned, Blue Byte also discusses the next Cosmetic DLC for Anno 1800. In the past few weeks, players have had the opportunity to choose their favorite from three suggested themes. "A day in the amusement park" won. The developers write: "Immediately after our vote on the next Cosmetic DLC pack ended, our art team set out to create 15 exciting new ornaments." In a first preview they show concepts for a Ferris wheel in Anno 1800. "While the Ferris wheel is of course an eye-catcher, we can tell you that it will not be the only magnificent ornament on your hype," promises Blue Byte. So far, however, no further details are available. The Cosmetic DLC is due to be released in summer for 4.99 euros.
