The series is coming to consoles for the first time with adapted controls as well as fully supported cross-play and shared progression across all available platforms, including PC.

  • A multiplayer mode for skirmish battles in Solo vs. AI, co-op vs. AI or PvP featuring up to eight players, with thirteen skirmish maps.
  • The Hardcore mode for players willing to test their adaptability and strategic skills in a solo or co-op PvE environment.

Powered by Ubisoft’s proprietary Snowdrop engine, the inviting and lively medieval-fantasy world of The Settlers®: New Allies offers colourful environments and detailed animations across thirteen diverse skirmish maps available at launch.

The Settlers®: New Allies is available in two editions: the Standard Edition containing the base game, and the Deluxe Edition which includes the base game, the deluxe pack (in-game digital content, digital artbook and soundtrack) and the Explorer pack (in-game digital content).
