The Settlers: Heritage of Kings Release Date PC
The Settlers: Heritage of Kings is the fifth installment in a popular franchise of economic strategy games originated in 1994. In contrast to previous games of the series, this new episode offers fully 3D graphics. The environment is generated by a recognized RenderWare technology created by Criterion Software (see: kill.switch and Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon). Stepping into the third dimension also resulted in changing the artwork style – comic-like stylistics gave way to realism.
The game’s world is inspired by the European Medieval times and its architecture, therefore timber-framed houses stand next to massive gothic cathedrals and strongholds. The game tasks you with overthrowing a villainous tyrant and becoming the leader of a mighty kingdom. The way to success leads through establishing a complex chain of economy (chopping down trees, breeding cattle, gathering resources, etc.) and taking military actions. The game’s realism is further enhanced by changing weather conditions and the cycle of seasons. One of the game’s developers is Bruce Milligan, previously responsible for Sid Meier’s Civilization, Tropico: Paradise Island and other titles.
