With this announcement, Ubisoft delighted retro fans at Gamescom 2018. The iconic build series the settlers must return to the big picture. The reboot led by Volker Wertich was then clearly postponed, most recently even “indefinitely”.
Now everything is going very fast. The Settlers will be released for PCs on March 17, 2022. You can get the Explorer edition pre-order at Amazon*. Maybe we should have taken our time: “Not a good settler, not a good game”, is the headline GameStar.
The settlers must bring back the crowds
Subsequent games failed to build on the popularity of the first half of the series. This should (actually) change with the new The Settlers. The game aims to take the best gameplay elements from the last installments and modernize them and combine them with new features.
A food system is set up, a system for teamwork in production buildings and alternative routes to victory. With the internal Snowdrop engine, The Settlers should also be visually convincing. They want to provide the “busy factor” again.
