Below is the official description of The Settlers:

The Settlers, developed by Ubisoft Düsseldorf, returns as a reboot that was primarily inspired by The Settlers 3 and The Settlers 4, two of the most popular games in the series. Gamers can look forward to a brand new Settler Experience, developed from the ground up with Ubisoft’s own Snowdrop engine, which will shine the brand in a new light. Fans of the series, but also new players: inside, will experience lush and colorful biomes as well as modernized gameplay. The Settlers has three different game modes: single player campaign, rush and skirmish (solo versus AI, co-op versus AI or PvP with up to eight game ends).

In The Settlers, the Elari faction is forced to flee their homeland and settle in a new and unknown land. Adventure awaits the settlers when they meet other factions and face tough challenges on their journey. There are a total of three playable factions in The Settlers, each with a unique look, play style and backstory.
