Settlers of Catan is a strategy board game about a group of settlers who have traveled to an uninhabited island and find that other settlers have also arrived. Everyone is now in a race to build their settlements as fast as possible and claim the island as their own.
Throughout the game, you must collect resources, trade with your enemies or with ships on the shores of the island, and use your collected resources to build your colonies. To win the board game you must be the first person to earn 10 points on your turn (this can be a bit frustrating if you have 10 points and are waiting for your turn to claim victory, only for the person before you earn 10 points in turn).
The game is a lot of fun and has led to many incredibly entertaining family game nights (it certainly causes a lot less squabbling than Monopoly).

Many have enjoyed the beloved board game for years and now the creators of Catania decided to digitize their work. Everything from gathering new resources to trading to building your settlements will come to life, bringing the world of Catania to life in a way that has never been seen before. Rather than the flat tiles of the board game, there will be NPCs that can walk around, animals living on the land, and much more.
Catania will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles. The new consoles will run at 60 fps (frames per second) and have 4k quality graphics, with haptic feedback which will also be available for PlayStation 5 users.
How will the game work?
You will be able to play the game locally, online or even in single player mode. The basic concept of the board game and all mechanics will remain the same: four players competing to compete for control of the island. When playing locally (with all players in the same room using the same console), the game will use players’ smartphones and have them as additional controllers on which they can hide their resources.
Players who decide to play alone will face off against AI opponents who, like regular opponents, will do whatever they can to ensure they are the only ones to conquer the island.
The objective of the game will remain the same along with the ability to customize the board so that every time you play the game the experience is different.
fans of Catania are excited to be able to play the game on consoles with friends who may live far away, and now they have the added benefit of not having to worry about losing coins.
