    TSO is moving to Unity!


    Dear Settlers, With Halloween approaching, we also want to give you another update on the future of TSO. It is time to finally reveal the technology we have chosen: Unity! The Unity engine is one of the most renowned and esteemed game engines on the market right now and fulfils all our main requirements. It is a long-lasting technology that will allow us to continue developing and improving the game in the future.

    It has a huge community and provides us with many development opportunities in the long run. And most importantly, it will allow all players to continue playing the game directly in their browser! But porting the huge game The Settlers Online has become over the last decade to this technology is an immense endeavour. Although we started the development quite some time ago, the Unity version will not be ready right at the beginning of 2021.

    This means that we will have to bridge roughly the first three months of 2021 with a different technology. We will use a Flash-based, downloadable client to achieve this. We know this is not ideal, but we dearly hope you will make the change together with us. We have lived and played through a lot of Settler lives together and wish to continue our journey with you for the years to come.

    There are many steps to take to complete this epic adventure. We will update you frequently on the progress and provide you with a timeline of what is to come soon. We also know that a lot of you will have questions right now and we want to answer a few important ones immediately. You will be able to continue playing on your current island and you will keep all your possessions! We will not change the Art Style to a 3D look or change the game completely. No, the game will stay our beloved TSO!

    Stay tuned for further exciting updates and let us know your thoughts here!
