Description

The Settlers IV is the 4th real-time strategy game in the Settler series, building upon its predecessor with some graphical improvements, new buildings and features.

You now can zoom in and out without steps and the game supports resolutions up to 1280x1024.

There are 3 normal campaigns where the player controls the Romans, the Vikings and the Mayans, but there's also a campaign wherein you fight against the dark side.

Also there are enhanced multiplayer features and the game supports built-in voice chat, so Roger Wilco is not needed anymore.

The game basically is still the same, try to settle your little guys on a piece of land where another person also settled. Build your own economical system with food and weaponry production and then attack.
