The Colonists is a settlement building game inspired by classic titles like The Settlers and the Anno series. In the game, you take control of a team of robots tasked with settling a newly-discovered planet, preparing the ground for an influx of inhabitants from their homeworld. You’ll advance from the Stone Age to the Space Age as you build the infrastructure for your colony by constructing complex road, boat, train and drone transport systems. Harvest natural resources, set up farming and food production, sculpt the terrain to optimise your networks, conquer other settlements or trade with new allies. Explore, research, manage, tweak and refine to your heart’s content!
The Colonists will feature a single player campaign, a free-play mode, competitive multiplayer and co-op. It will launch in Early Access in August 2017.
