Anno 2070, last year's entry in Ubisoft's long-running RTS series, gets a major expansion this Autumn, the publisher has announced.
Titled Deep Ocean, it adds a new civilisation level, with the Tech faction expanded by the Genius class.
The new class offers access to the new Tech Monument, corresponding production chains and consumption goods.
Ubisoft wants to offer PC gamers so much value with its franchises that the need for its controversial DRM "goes away".
Ubisoft has said that seemingly overzealous DRM in its PC strategy title Anno 2070 is working as intended and claimed most players won't ever fall foul of it.
Ubisoft RTS due this year.
Ubisoft's long running Anno RTS franchise returns to PC this winter, with the action moving out of the history books and into the future.
Anno 2070, developed by series mainstay Related Designs with help from Blue Byte, sees you mastering new technologies to colonise a world ravaged by global warming.
There will be two factions to choose from: the industry-focussed Tycoons (boo!) or eco-friendly tree-huggers known as the Ecos (yay!).
