Tiny people conquer the world once again. This time in 3D!

The Settlers 2: 10th Anniversary, a visually updated version of the hit civilization-building strategy title featuring tribes of tiny men tirelessly crafting giant empires, one farm at a time, is available on GOG.com, for only $9.99

Building an empire from scratch is never easy, but that does not mean that it can't be enjoyable. Watching your settlement grow, one farmhouse after another, and your tiny subject working hard as busy little bees, makes the heart feel all warm and fuzzy. Just look at them! Always rushing to perform their little tasks--each of them seemingly insignificant, but all of them crucial to the ultimate well-being of the nation. Just try not to think about all the micromanaging an emperor has to perform. Trust me, it'll make your head feel heavy under the burden of your crown.

The Settlers 2: 10th Anniversary is a game where you build your kingdom with the help of hunters, soldiers, shipbuilders, and more unit types at your command. You develop elaborate settlements from many different building types--ranging from farmhouses to castles. The game comes with a wide selection of challenging maps, on which you must not only seize control, but also set up a working infrastructure. Rediscover the great gameplay of this classic gem, that now comes with updated 3D graphics!

Nothing should stand in the way of progress and civilization! Nothing should stop you from grabbing The Settlers 2: 10th Anniversary, for only $9.99!

amok: besides online two-player? (original only had split-screen). Not really. There have been done some tweaks and optimisations to the economy system. Some say it is slightly easier now, I say it is more playable. But the changes are not to noticeable, to be honest.However, it just runs much smoother and faster, and I also found it more stable, last time I tried. The maps are also different.

The new graphical engine is the main selling point, but I think it is well worth it - it is an improvement. This is a much better version then original Settlers II.

benjiir: Hmm shame it wasn't an upgrade like the Stronghold titles for instance. But Bluebyte and GOG need to make money too. I'll not complain, but doubt I'll buy this version. I like S2 as it is, although the multiplayer could be fun.

Gonna put on my contemplating cap =)
They did not want to change anything except the graphics and only necessary tweaks. They were worried about doing anything which would change the game. This is settlers 2. Not remake. For that I am thankful.
Wow! Just, wow!
I love this game, I loved the original and I love the remake.

Own them retail so little reason to buy here...

I too wish that they would have translated the Vikings expansion into english, that would have made this pack an auto-buy for me, since ive wanted to play it (properly, in actual 100% english) for a long time now...

Its not like it is unheard of for them, as far as I am aware there was no english retail version of the Knights and Merchants expansion until GOG.


Edit: and yes I do know of the aforemeantioned mod/patch to get vikings expansion working

keeveek: Settlers 2 10th anniversary is another game I was asking for a long time! It looks like GOG really hears my whining! :D

Now, Settlers 3 and 4, please!
Now, please whine for Homeworld. :P

Yes, this is Settlers II, but IMO much more playable. When you try this version, you just don't want to go back to the original.

and the original theme park would be pretty fun too. But 2nd on all those games
That's nice. I played Settlers 2 for hours but lost the disc. Time for a replay maybe.
I always felt like I was playing a twisted version of "AOE: The Smurfs" whenever I played this. Of course, I only ever played the demo. I'm sure the full game doesn't look quite so silly. :P
I know this was talked about above already but I still have a question about The Settlers II Gold Edition vs this new one.

It looks like the Gold Edition added some content and features to the original Settlers II, judging by the little described in the Gamespot review I was just looking at. I've had The Settlers II Gold Edition on my wish list for a long time now but hadn't gotten it yet.

Should I now just forget about the Gold Edition and get this one instead? Would I be missing anything by doing that? Thanks.

If you had not played s2 before tenth edition is for you.

Gold edition is just an extra map-pack, or two extra campaigns, added to the main game.

The maps between Settlers II Gold and Settlers II 10'th Ann. are different anyway, but yes, the inclusion of the extra maps/campaigns do make the Settlers II gold a little longer. However - both has the sandbox mode, so it all depends...

I would recommend getting this version first anyway - it is just better balanced and more playable.

and what about the multiplayer feature? Is it playable? I mean, I hope it does not need any Ubisoft server or something like this, right?

I like Settlers 2 too much and I want to try this. I never played it and I think it is a good reason to do it now :)
Is this that game where Barbarians/Vikings come in and steal your women?
