The Settlers series is a strategy game that has been around since the time of the Commodore Amiga, with various different eras of civilisation to manage and guide as they flourish with each iteration. In The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom, you get to rule early Renaissance Europe with an almighty god-like fist.

New locations and periods in time bring with them new opportunities for gameplay and adventure, but the core mechanic of The Settlers 7 won't break tradition here, giving you a familiar feel and play style that reminds you of simpler gaming times.

That isn't to say nothing has changed though, as a new victory point system adds more drama to the population's proceedings. Whether it be via battles, exploration, science or other forms of evolution, you can earn victory points dependant on your play style and choices throughout the campaign.

The Settlers 7 also packs a brand new graphics engine to bring your medieval cities to life, and improved AI profiles for your citizens that each have unique behaviours and characteristics. Choose your path of evolution using one of the three main pillars – Military, Science or Trade – and take opponents head-on in online combat. You can also expand the experience with user-generated and downloadable content.
