An Ubisoft press release has confirmed that The Settlers: Rise of an Empire will be released in September, 2007. Rise of an Empire is Blue Byte's sixth game in the popular sim series.
In Rise of an Empire, players build towns in a medieval world. Each settler has his or her own routine, with a range of different actions and behaviours. This enables the player to try and build up an economy, and keep their Settlers safe and fed. The game will include a Freeplay mode, as well as many multiplayer options. First images of the game can be found in our Media Panel.
