In a world which somewhat resembles the Britain of the Arthurian Legends, you guide the fate of young Dario and his ever growing fellowship of friends as they struggle to restore the old empire, which was ruled by Dario's father years ago and has since fallen apart, to its former glory.

This fifth installation of the Settlers franchise moves the focus of the series away from micromanaging a daisy chain economy towards RTS gameplay mechanics, so expect to build up a base and recruit units of spearmen, swordmen and horsemen to ensure your victory.
