The Settlers: Rise of an Empire: History Edition is a city-building game with various real-time strategy elements, and it is the seventh title in The Settlers series. The game was developed by Blue Byte and published by Ubisoft.
Each map that you play on has predetermined goals that you must achieve by building your own settlement and maintaining its economy. Construct various buildings and upgrade them, manage the taxation in your settlements, pay soldiers, make sure you fulfill the needs of your workers, and constantly be on the lookout for more resources. The Settlers: Rise of an Empire: History Edition has the same supply and demand-based gameplay that you love from the previous Settlers games, but the game mechanics are vastly different. The economic model is much simpler in this game and there is less micromanagement. A lot more emphasis has been put into upgrading buildings, evolving your settlement, and constantly maintaining the high standard of living that you've achieved. Combat isn't as important as it was in previous titles, so players don't have to worry about tricky battles anymore.
The Settlers: Rise of an Empire: History Edition has a single-player mode and a multiplayer mode for you to enjoy. Single-player gives you the option of going through the game's campaign missions or playing non-campaign games in which you can create and expand your settlement without any objectives. The maps in the campaign mode have many objectives that you need to complete, and there are many optional missions. Non-campaign single-player modes and the multiplayer modes allow you to pick a map on which you will play. Each map has its own geographical conditions, resource distribution, mission objectives, and more.
