This constitutes an enticing proposition for anyone looking for that special gaming gift this Christmas.
The Standard Edition will be available for £19.99 and loaded with content valued at over £35. This content can be redeemed with a code. Besides the game, players will also get their hands on an extra resource pack (400 stones, 400 planks, 100 tools and 20 settlers), 3 tactical maps (printed in the manual), a troop buff, 4000 gems and “The Nords 1” adventure to start them off in style.
Developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte, The Settlers Online is said to combine the popular gameplay elements of The Settlers franchise with brand new features suited to a persistent, web-based browser game.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
