Settlers IV is the fourth installment in the Settlers series developed by BlueByte Software. This time around, we can choose one of the three nations: Romans, Vikings, and Mayans. Apart from unique buildings, all of them also have their own spells and produce specific goods. Additionally, the so-called Dark Tribe led by Morbus will be our enemy. Much like in the previous games of this series, the basic goal is to build a well-developed settlement and defeat our foe.

One of the new features is the introduction of the so-called big buildings where several settlers can work simultaneously, e.g. while building a ship. The “dark mode”, where we can’t see our enemies, can raise the level of difficulty. There are also new transportation rules: the unfrequented paths overgrow with grass, while goods and settlers may be carried by caravans. Special units, such as saboteurs, can destroy enemy buildings.

  • High-quality graphics and zoom option.
