With the long-running series from Ubisoft set to make a return in reboot form, hence the naming The Settlers. Out sometime next year, and comnig from the same development team behind the excellent Anno 1800, this new The Settlers game will run on Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine - the same one built to power The Division.

With the full game set to offer up procedural maps with varying landscapes and missions. The goal there being to always offer up exploration and a sense of discovery, no matter how many times you've played.

Although a lot of the details about how it all plays are a little scarce we can glean some info from the victory conditions outlined:
The Combat strategy: Players would control full armies of different units, taking on and defeating enemy armies to take over or defend their territory. Special units such as army leaders can have a positive effect on their troops.
The Glory strategy: Players would select a hero character who will fight in the arena against the enemy. Once a player initiates a battle, spectators representing both sides will gather at the arena to watch the battle. Winning a fight can lead to dissatisfaction among the defeated party. This however can lead to revolts, allowing the player to take over the enemy territory.
The Faith strategy: the third winning strategy will allow players to inspire Faith amongst Settlers and will be detailed at a later date.

Pointing to a greater focus on Settlers, their lives and motivations. The game will also support co-op and PvP when it debuts on PC via Uplay and the Epic Games Store.
