The Settlers IV

The Settlers is the eighth entry in the cult series of strategy games that started in 1993. The title is also a reboot of the series. The game was developed by the German Blue Byte studio, which takes care of the series' development. The same team has been working on Anno since 2006.

Game mechanics

The Settlers is the return to the well-known solutions from the third and fourth part of the series. We play the role of a leader of one of three factions (Elari, Maru and Jorn) and our main goal is to develop our settlement and fight with neighboring tribes. We achieve success by taking care of the military base and, above all, economic base. Landmarks, which are special places on the map, help us - occupying them gives us various useful bonuses (e.g. after sacrificing tools we'll receive a few weapons needed to recruit soldiers).

The key factor that determines victory or defeat is economy. We must ensure that we do not run out of key resources (such as stone, wood or iron ore). We can speed up their production with food - delivering it to the right facility will please our settlers and make them work more efficiently.

An important role in the game will be played by engineer units, which we can manually control, just like our soldiers. They discover ore deposits, expand our territory or bring to the warehouse the resources discovered on the map and coming from the landmarks.

Game modes

The main game mode of The Settlers game is the story campaign. Multiplayer PvP skirmishes and battles with the artificial intelligence complement it.

Technical aspects

The Settlers features three-dimensional graphics that use warm, colorful style. During the game, the players can observe the daily life of the citizens, the steps of production of equipment, and the process of constructing buildings. The game is powered by Snowdrop Engine – the same technology was used, among other games, in Tom Clancy’s The Division.
