The games included in this collection all benefit from new graphics features (with resolutions up to 4K), as well as updated and expanded multiplayer options and matchmaking; multi-screen support; and save compatibility that lets players start from their original game saves. There’s also a host of bonus content, including soundtracks, wallpapers, and an ornament for Anno 1800.
