How can I access the update and the FRONTIERS DLC? I cannot find it anywhere.

Please make sure that your game is up to date. The update is available with all versions (since 1.8). 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. The FRONTIERS DLC will be downloaded for Season Pass owners automatically. Of course the DLC is availiable for anyone else, too.

General Questions

Is the Frontiers DLC part of the Season Pass?

Yes, the DLC is part of the Season Pass.
The Season Pass is also part of versions like the Ultimate Edition.
Therefore you automatically own all DLCs then. All you have to do is updating the game.

Can I get the Frontiers DLC separately?

If you prefer to choose separate DLCs, you can just get the FRONTIERS DLC without the other DLCs.
Players who own the Season Pass, or a version that includes the Season Pass, already own all available DLCs.
