How can I access the BIG FIVE PACK? I cannot find it anywhere.

Please make sure that your game is up to date. The BIG FIVE PACK is available with all versions (since 1.6). If you have an active internet connection and Uplay or Steam are not in offline mode, Anno 2205 will update automatically the next time you start the game. This way the new version update will be downloaded as well.

Why can’t I keep my recent difficulty? – Why am I being downgraded?

Since the BIG FIVE Update you should be able to maintain your difficulty through adjustments of the recently added difficulty settings. Out of balancing reasons in the past an automatic downgrade was necessary to implement the new features. You will of course keep all your achievements and buildings that refer to a certain difficulty.

Most questions were about the stock market

The choice to devaluate share reduces the maximum amount of money your rivals are willing to invest during an auction.
