Release: The Settlers: Rise of an Empire
Your empire rises, better than ever... The Settlers: Rise of an Empire - Gold Edition, a quality return to the core formula, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com. The game is available at 50% off, or 60% off if you complete the series.The Settlers is a series fond of change and evolution, and though it's hard for a fan to call any entry "bad", some design choices have met with equal amounts of praise and criticism. After The Settlers: Heritage of Kings launched to a controversial reception, enamoring some and disappointing others - The Settlers: Rise of An Empire returns to a more classic formula, catering to the oldest fans of the series, while providing plenty of eye candy and much-needed updates for newcomers. The gameplay basics, like building and collecting resources, have been streamlined to minimise menial clicking and annoyances - but not so much that they can be considered "dumbed down". At the time of it's premiere, Rise of an Empire was considered (arguably, of course) the best to date.To celebrate the launch, The Settlers: Rise of an Empire along with the whole series is available at 60% off when you complete your collection. You can also pick up the games at 50% off individually.Rediscover the love in The Settlers: Rise of an Empire - Gold Edition, available now, DRM-free on GOG.com. The launch discount will last until September 7, 2:59 PM GMT.
