New The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria Details Emerge; Will Be Playable at Gamescom
Back in June, Ubisoft announced The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria, the first proper The Settlers game since 2010's The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom. Today, Ubisoft released ten screenshots and offered up some details on this new iteration of the classic city building and real-time action strategy franchise:
Players will work to build up, control and optimise their production chains and economy to unlock building upgrades and new sectors, resulting in kingdoms growing larger than ever before. They will also have the opportunity to face-off against fierce enemies and frightening bosses in tactical battles to earn resources and special loot as they level up. Players can choose the champion class and skill set that best suits their play style from the thousands of different combinations possible.
Players can also team-up with up to three friends to dive into adventures that will help them collect loot while discovering the secrets of the untamed lands of Anteria. They can also visit and trade resources with friends to create a healthy supply chain and economic growth. No matter what players prefer, they will be able to focus gameplay on their favourite feature, either developing the Settlers’ kingdom and optimising the economy or seeking tactical fights and new adventures.
The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria is scheduled to arrive later this year for PC, but a closed beta will be launching soon, so be sure to head on over to the official site to sign up. If you happen to be in Cologne, Germany next week, the game will be playable during Gamescom from August 13-17 at Ubisoft's booth in Hall 6.1, Stand B020.
