It has been a while since I ventured into Ubisoft and Blue Byte’s The Settlers Online. But a PvP Mode and an enhanced battle system, which are currently available to try out on the test servers, may be just the convincing I need to return.
The international test server offers the community a preview version of this two major features coming to the final game this winter. Players just need to sign-up on the server to get their hands on the all-new game content.
The so called PvP expeditions are special generated adventure islands, which have to be conquered, defended or can be stolen by other players. The mode introduces new buildings like the combat academy and the combat weapon smith, as well as 6 new weapon and 7 new unit types.
The enhanced battle system allows for the first time to influence the outcome of a fight directly. While watching the combat on the map, it is possible to change attacking units.
