Ubisoft Blue Byte and NVIDIA have released brand new gameplay footage for The Settlers, the video showcases next-gen visuals that have never been seen before in a Settlers title.

The Settlers was showcased at this years GamesCom and will be using the very beautiful Snowdrop engine that was featured in Ubisofts other title The Division. The gameplay footage is displayed to us over the top of an interview with Volker Wertich, the Creative Director for The Settler. Wertich says that The Settlers isn't a fast paced real-time strategy game, and instead will have a comfortable slow click rate that will be more concentrated on thinking and acting correctly.

Players will be able to enjoy some different ways of achieving victory in this version of The Settlers. Of course you will be able to take the millitary path and completely obiliterate your opponents, but you will also be able to take the side of diplomacy to your opponents and convince them to join your side, rendering you victorious as well. The Settlers is planned for release sometime in 2019, if you want to follow the news for The Settlers, check out Ubisofts blog for the title here.
