Ubisoft announced that The Settlers Online, a browser based free-to-play strategy game set in the Settlers Universe, has reached more than 1.5 million players in its initial rollout in Germany, US, France and Russia.
Developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte, The Settlers Online combines the popular gameplay elements of The Settlers franchise with brand new features suited to a persistent, web-based browser game. Players are able to settle a new city and join thousands of gamers already online to create or join guilds, trade resources and acquire and exchange bonuses to help each other out along the way to building a mighty kingdom.
The English language European Open Beta commences today, allowing players to experience the latest iteration of the Settlers brand for the very first time.
