Ubisoft and their Blue Byte studios have announced that from today, players will be able to build monuments on their islands in Anno Online to give themselves additional bonuses in game. These monuments can begin being unlocked through the library, and come in several forms including the Botanic Gardens and (the first one unlocked) the library.
A monument can have up to three construction phases. Players have to deliver the construction site constantly and manually with goods, and search throughout the game for special construction components. After building the Library, players will discover the Tech tree, which consists out of several branches that can be unlocked for Knowledge Points and providing players the ability to build 6 different types of Botanical Garden, each one giving them a specific buff or bonus.
Similar to other browser-based games which rely on social networking, players can visit their friends monuments to aid their construction by sending constructors for a specific period of time. A player can also request help from other players to improve the construction process of their buildings.
