The Settlers: A video diary on the vision behind the new strategy game

The Settlers

The Settlers returns to be shown in video with a video dedicated to the vision behind the construction of the new chapter, where the developers explain us something about the design of this long-awaited return to the strategic sector.

The creative director Christian Hagedorn introduces us to this in-depth video on The Settlers, starting from the idea that characterized the start of the development of the new chapter. The concept was to be able to recover the original features of the series and propose them in a modern context and in step with the times.

The traces of the tradition of the series are clearly visible in the general style and in the basic strategic structure, but the whole is much more extensive and rich, with the addition of new units and specializations, obviously new constructions and a much greater complexity in the aspects relating to the management of the cities and in the part relating to the war.

From this last point of view it seems that the developers have worked in a particularly deep way, trying to make the management of clashes and armies more complex, with numerous additional options that also affect the possibility of multiplayer. To learn more about the game, we refer you to the interview with the game director Nadim Affani and the tried and tested The Settlers, published in recent days.

Today Ubisoft released a new video focusing on the new The Settlers game.

The video provides an extensive overview on the game, its features, its factions, and even a few hints on the campaign that will see us control the Elari factions, while the other two will be playable in Skirmish mode.

We also take a look at the new art style that portrays the game’s fantasy world.

You can watch it below.

The Settlers will release for PC on March 17, 2022. A closed beta will be hosted between January 20 and January 24

If you’re not familiar with The Settlers series, it debuted all the way back in 1993, originally developed and published by BlueByte, yet the success of the first games has been followed by a rollercoaster of ups and downs (mostly downs, to be fair) culminating with the cancellation of The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria in 2014.

Now Ubisoft is bringing the series back, and hopefully, we’ll see a return to the old glory. The publisher has found recent success in the genre with Anno 1800, so the chances for a good game exist.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens in a few days with the closed beta leading up to the release in March.
