Heritage of Kings The Settlers™ (2005)

About This Game

In the game’s single-player campaign, the player controls Dario, a young man who is shocked to learn he is the rightful heir to the throne of a once prosperous, but now war-torn and divided country. Joined by a group of loyal supporters, Dario sets out to depose the current king by uniting the princedoms into which the country has split.

Heritage of Kings received mixed reviews, with many critics arguing the graphical changes, streamlining of micromanagement, and foregrounding of combat stripped the game of the unique Settlers identity

The Expansion Disc takes place several years later; when building work on a major new bridge stops under mysterious circumstances, Dario and his companions are called upon to investigate.

When King Mordred rallies his legions under a banner of evil, two friends unite to destroy him and to restore peace to the Old Realm. In this addictive blend of real-time strategy and city-building gameplay, conquer seven powerful kingdoms in Dario’s epic journey to lay claim to his rightful crown.

Create breathtaking 3D cities alive with industrious inhabitants, changing seasons, and more than 60 medieval building types.
Consult scholars to craft new inventions, barter resources through merchants, and capitalize on more than 70 professions. Build a mighty empire through 20 challenging missions as Dario’s tangled quest unfolds. Plan strategic attacks using specialized squadrons, and increase your tactical advantage by upgrading your hero’s weapons and abilities.


  • Addictive gameplay with a strong “just one more mission” factor
