The Settlers Series History:

The Settlers series launched in 1993, & its first game was known as The Settlers. It was a strategy based city builder where users could construct their own town. Users could grow vegetation in the farm, find & gather resources, as well as build to save their base from enemy assaults.

Victory in The Settlers was largely dependent on making an effective base, based on the budget, buildings, army & the satisfaction of the inhabitants.

The fundamentals of the game have not been altered. Every game of the series is based on building towns & real time strategy play. Every new game features a new narrative, campaign, improved battle as well as expansion packs.


The Settlers series consists of 9 games:

  1. The Settlers (1993) 
  2. The Settlers 2 (1996)
  3. The Settlers 3 (1998)
  4. The Settlers 4 (2001)
  5. The Settlers: Heritage of Kings (2004) 
  6. The Settlers: Rise of an Empire (2007)
  7. The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom (2010) 
  8. The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria (2014) 
  9. The Settlers: New Allies (2023)

Fully re-imagined with fresh visuals & graphics, the reboot proceeds the foundation of a strategy based town builder. Users will start with a small team, who need to help each other to spread out by gathering raw materials & farming, as well as army structures.

Users need to choose from 3 diverse parties. Every party offers a different appearance, original gameplay style, strengths, & a deep background tale.

New game modes are available including a narrative driven campaign, hardcore mode, & wars versus other users or artificial intelligence via the internet.


Improvements and New Features in The Settlers: New Allies VS History:

One of the most important new features is the addition of neutral bandit camps that guards the roads b/w users on multiplayer maps. It saves users in the early game, which seems a quality feature.

A few little but impactful alterations have been made such as buildings claiming more neighbouring areas when they are placed, & food has further advantages. More impactful features include saving & loading games, customizing controls, commanding armies to patrol or hold their position, & inviting buddies to play private matches.

The advantages of tools have been increased therefore, they are more crucial in the game. Specializing the base early is crucial. A forestry building is available too that allows users to grow trees.

The soldiers are slightly boring in gameplay. The parties can use special skills including seemingly silly battle jumping / teleporting, & the skill to set up ambushes.

The Hardcore mode previously named as Onslaught, has been enhanced tremendously & the skirmish maps have been doubled than their availability in the beta version. Hence, twelve skirmish maps are available in the game. The complete version of the game will have the story campaign that consists of thirteen quests. This game is focused on a party escaping their hometown and arriving at a new place, confronting hardships such as saving themselves from cruel bandits & finding the new culture of these territories.


The Settlers New Allies support Cross Play and Cross Progression:

The Settlers New Allies supports both Cross Play & Cross Save b/w every platform, such as PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, & Xbox Series X/S.
