The Settlers: New Allies: first on PC, then on consoles [VIDEO]

Ubisoft Blue Byte’s game has a release date, but only for one platform.


Ubisoft has announced on its website when it will release The Settlers: New Allies for PC, and despite the French publisher’s decision to return to Steam, this game won’t be there yet. Here’s the game overview by Ubisoft: “The Settlers: New Allies is a strategy game with an in-depth build-up experience and real-time strategic battles. Fully reimagined from the ground up, with stunning graphics and detailed animations, choose among three factions: the Elari, the Maru, and the Jorn. Each has a unique look, playstyle, and background story.

Experience a story-driven campaign set in The Settlers, or go for the special Hardcore mode and its additional challenges. Play online with up to eight players in thrilling skirmish battles against other players or AI for long-lasting fun. Single-player campaign: as the Elari is forced to flee their homeland, they must settle on new and unknown territories. These new Settlers will have to face many challenges on their journey, from the raiding of ruthless bandits to the discovery of the unique culture of these lands.

Hardcore mode: as players can play new scenarios, a wide range of modifiers and conditions will make the AI an even more challenging opponent. Adaptability is critical in this new mode that will put the best players to the test, alone or with friends. Skirmish: players can experience solo versus artificial intelligence, co-op versus artificial intelligence, or player-versus-player featuring up to eight players on the 12 maps available at launch.”

The Settlers: New Allies will first be released for PC on February 17. Don’t look for it on Steam. Instead, you can find it on the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store, and it’s almost guaranteed to use Denuvo. Later, no word yet on when, but it’ll be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Amazon Luna. (And Google Stadia would have got it, but it’ll bite the bullet by then – we can pop champagne then.)
