The Settlers is a series of city-building strategy games developed by German studio Blue Byte Software and published by Ubisoft. The first game in the series, originally titled Die Siedler, was released in 1993 for MS-DOS, and it was later ported to other platforms. The series has since grown to include several sequels and spin-off titles.
The Settlers games are set in various historical periods and involve building and managing a settlement, gathering resources, and engaging in trade and warfare with neighboring settlements. The gameplay emphasizes strategic planning, resource management, and efficient use of space and resources.
Over the years, the series has received critical acclaim for its innovative gameplay, beautiful graphics, and detailed attention to historical accuracy. Some of the most popular games in the series include The Settlers II: Veni, Vidi, Vici, The Settlers III, and The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom.
In recent years, the series has faced some setbacks, with the cancellation of The Settlers (2019), a new game in the series that was in development for several years. However, the series remains a beloved classic for many strategy game fans.
