Ubisoft Bringing Back The Settlers Franchise With The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria
While Ubisoft and its subsidiary Blue Byte Software launched the freemium, browser-based The Settlers Online in 2012, there hasn't been a proper The Settlers game since 2010 (The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom). Today, Ubisoft UK announced a return to the franchise with The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria. Like the previous games, Kingdoms of Anteria will combine city building and real-time strategy. "You will build up a prosperous economy and lead your champion through dangerous adventures in order to create a wealthy, bustling and glorious kingdom."
Aside from the CGI Announcement Trailer above, not much else is known of the game, with the official site simply having a newsletter subscription to learn more when new information is released. The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria will presumably be a PC-exclusive like its predecessors.
