The Settlers Online gets oodles of extras for December release

Blue Byte's charming Settlers strategy series has been around since 1993, and has clocked up six sequels over the years. The most recent of these, The Settlers Online, is getting a deluxe boxed release just in time for Christmas.

Due for launch on December 7th, publisher Ubisoft has announced that the game's standard edition will cost just �9.99 and will come with bonus content worth over �5. That includes an extra resource pack which gets you off to a flying start with 400 stones, 400 planks, 100 tools and 20 settlers, plus 4000 gems for all your in-game shopping needs. You'll also get a troop buff, to make combat that little bit easier to start with and a bonus adventure called The Nords 1. Three tactical maps have also been added.

As the name suggests, The Settlers Online takes the traditional resource gathering and town building gameplay and stirs in a healthy dollop of social networking. It's perfect for those who prefer their strategy with a more gentle pace.
