Ubisoft unveils Settlers 7 for spring

Build in idyllic Renaissance Europe.

Ubisoft and developer Blue Byte have whipped the wrappers off of The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom, which takes places in Renaissance Europe and should be out for PC next spring.

Campaigns have three win conditions - military, science and trade - and fine-tuning a kingdom can go right down to a village by village, sector by sector level, apparently.

Online multiplayer and associated leaderboards lend a competitive edge, and there's a promise of user-generated and downloadable content to follow the game's release.

Blue Byte has created a new graphics engine for Settlers 7 and reworked the AI, too. Head to The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom gallery to see the eye-pleasing changes for yourself.

Alternatively, pop over to Eurogamer TV for the first Settlers 7 video.
