The Settlers: New Allies is a build-up real-time strategy game where players will settle onto a new land, build their communities, meet new factions, and choose to welcome them as allies or enemies in order to protect and defend their new settlement.

Forced to leave their homelands after a devastating earthquake of mysterious origins, the Settlers set sail towards the unknown in the hopes of finding a new home. Not only will they face plenty of new challenges, they will also become part of an ancient mystery that will change their lives forever.

The Settlers allows players to explore, conquer, and settle new islands in a medieval fantasy world.

Combining the familiar gameplay mechanics of The Settlers series with new features and state-of-the-art technology, The Settlers is a reboot of the build-up strategy brand. The Settlers will combine the best, yet modernized gameplay elements from previous titles with fresh new features such as the new food system, multi-worker job system and alternative methods of victory. Powered by Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine, The Settlers will deliver stunning visuals and bring back the unique Wuselig, or bustling,feeling, specific to the brand’s DNA. Players can immerse themselves in the world of The Settlers, discovering the innumerable details of the bustling life from the different tribes that make up the colourful open world of The Settlers.

The Settlers can be played both in PVE and PVP, and features three modes for players to enjoy: Campaign, Skirmish and Multiplayer. Powered by Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine, the game will use the new procedural map generation technology of landscapes and missions, bringing to players an authentic sense of discovery, exploration and uniqueness.

Coinciding with today’s news, the team will also start streaming The Settlers: New Allies to cover a series of topics around the different modes, the lore, and much more!
