The Settlers: Rise of an Empire Screenshots



In The Settlers Rise of an Empire, the player builds lively, bustling towns in a medieval world. Everything is visible, lovingly animated and realistic. Each settler has his or her own daily routine, with a range of different actions and behaviors that can be observed by the player at all times. This enables the player to get the best out of the settlers, build up a flourishing economy, tend to the settlers' needs and protect the empire against danger from the outside. By expanding the empire, the player can aspire to becoming a legendary king or queen.

The most popular features of the predecessors in the series have been retained and many of the fans' desires and wishes were incorporated into the new game to create a very special Settlers atmosphere.
