The Settlers in March

A new Welcome to The Settlers trailer offers the promised look at the upcoming reboot of Ubisoft's city building strategy game. This includes a release date, saying this will arrive on March 17th, just in time for your Saint Patrick's Day party. There will be a closed beta between now and then, which gets underway next week. Discussions of the game can be found in new previews on Gamereactor, PC Gamer, PCGamesN, Polygon, and Rock Paper Shotgun. Here's the plan:
The Settlers will release on Windows PC on March 17 and is available for pre-order now on Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store. Additionally, players can participate in the upcoming closed beta, which begins January 20.

Developed by Ubisoft Düsseldorf, The Settlers returns as a reboot mostly inspired by The Settlers III and The Settlers IV, two of the most popular games in the franchise. Players can expect a fresh take on the new The Settlers. Built from the ground up using Ubisoft’s proprietary Snowdrop Engine, The Settlers sets a new visual benchmark in the RTS game genre. Traditional and new players will experience lush and colorful environmental biomes, as well as modernized gameplay. Players can enjoy The Settlers in one of three game modes: single-player campaign, Skirmish (solo vs. AI, co-op vs. AI or PvP featuring up to eight players) and Onslaught, where players can experience Skirmish maps solo, but with challenging conditions.
