Gamers around the world have been playing The Settlers for nearly 40 years now and there are plans to reboot the game. Here’s everything you need to know about it, including what led Ubisoft to make this decision in their quest for a way forward.
The “the settlers” is a game that has been remade for a new generation. The game, which was originally released in 1993, will be available on March 28th.
The long-awaited relaunch of The Settlers has been pushed back until the second half of March, according to publisher and developer Ubisoft. The game follows a group of settlers fleeing a military revolution on their home island, which leads them to explore other regions. It was first announced in 2019 and has been postponed twice since then.
According to the publisher, The Settlers “combines a fresh take on the series’ established gameplay principles with a new touch.” True to its real-time strategic origins, players are tasked with establishing a viable economy, backed up by a strong infrastructure, as well as constructing an army capable of both protecting and invading their opponents’ islands.
The Elari, Maru, and Jorn are the three playable factions in the game, each having their unique aesthetic, playstyle, special military unit, and narrative.
Before diving into the main campaign or Onslaught mode, which “offers extra difficulties,” players may acquaint themselves with the game’s mechanics in the tutorial.
Multiplayer skirmish fights with up to 8 players, whether human or AI-controlled, are also confirmed.
You’ll also explore improvements, learn how to deal with the obstacles of diverse biomes, and utilize specialist settlers to construct quicker or steal resources from your opponents, in addition to ensuring that your colonies have a consistent flow of resources.
The Settlers will have a limited beta this week, between January 20 and 24, offering fortunate gamers a chance to test out the game before it launches. On the game’s website, you can learn more about it, including how to register and what kind of computer you’ll need.
The Settlers will be released on PC through Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store on March 17th.
