Nearly 30 years after the debut of The Settlers, the legendary build-up real-time strategy series returns to Windows PC.
A group of settlers fleeing from a military coup on their home island embark on a journey in an inviting, believable and living medieval fantasy world to find a new home and the promised land of their ancestors. Settle on and explore new islands, make allies and fight against ruthless bandits that try spread control over many islands.
The Settlers combines a fresh take on the popular gameplay mechanics of the series with a new spin. It offers a deep infrastructure and economy gameplay, used to create and employ armies, to ultimately defeat opponents on a map.
