The objective of the game is to build up a colony with a thriving construction and mining industry, food, tool and weapon production. The player's skilful use of resources, combined with the irrepressible get-up-and-go of the diverse Settler characters, form the foundation for a robust colony.
Key new features to Settlers IV include incredibly detailed graphics in which the characters, buildings and landscapes take on a new level of quality, with abundant animations of wildlife and scenery making settlements look all the more idyllic. The improved zoom function makes viewing even the smallest details a new pleasure. Additionally, 2 new tribes, Mayans and Vikings have been added as well as "The Dark Tribe" being given a much larger role in the game. To enhance the enjoyment far more, there is also a completely new game element, pleasingly fusing the construction component and strategic elements of The Settlers more closely together.
Also includes the Settlers IV mission pack for extra Settling fun! Plenty of new ingredients have been added to the action when societies collide. Mayans have paralysing blowguns and the Vikings an oversized explosive hammer. Also new to the game is magic. Unique spells can be gained by each side after priests have been recruited to build temples, casting spells from crop blessing to offensive hail storms. The class of saboteur makes a welcome fighting entry in the multi-player game, too (via LAN or the Blue Byte online gaming portal).
