Ubisoft is bringing back the beloved RTS and town management action of The Settlers in a reboot inspired The Settlers 3 and The Settlers 4. Also described as a fresh take, it's been rebuilt from the ground-up on Ubi's impressive Snowdrop Engine. The same engine that powered The Division and Mario + Rabbids. The PC launch is happening March 17, hit the jump for the latest trailer.
As per below the new engine looks fantastic, highly detailed but retaining the same look and feel that has made the series a hit.
In The Settlers, the Elari (one of the factions in the game) are forced to flee from their homeland and must settle on new and unknown lands. Adventure awaits as The Settlers come across other citizens and face tough challenges on their journey. There are a total of three playable factions in The Settlers, each with a unique look, playstyle and respective background story.
Developed by Ubisoft Düsseldorf, The Settlers returns as a reboot mostly inspired by The Settlers 3 and The Settlers 4, two of the most popular games in the franchise. Players can expect a fresh take on the new The Settlers, built from the ground up using Ubisoft’s proprietary Snowdrop Engine, The Settlers sets a new visual benchmark in the RTS game genre. Traditional and new players will experience lush and colourful environmental biomes, as well as modernised gameplay. Players can enjoy The Settlers in one of three game modes: single-player campaign, Onslaught and skirmish (Solo vs. AI, co-op vs. AI or PvP featuring up to eight players).
A Closed Beta is also planned for January 20 - so be sure to head to thesettlers.com to register your interest.
