The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom is a real-time strategy and city-building video game developed by Blue Byte and published by Ubisoft. Paths to a Kingdom features gameplay similar to that of past 3D games of The Settlers series. The player may choose between playing a Campaign game, a Skirmish Game, a ranked game and a multiplayer game.

The game gives the player an opportunity to choose between three unique paths of development for victory: Military, Science, and Trade. In the traditional Military development path, the player builds the kingdom’s army in order to conquer and destroy enemies. The AI enemies have been greatly improved over those included in previous games, with more than twelve different AI profiles with unique behaviours. The game also includes an extensive new online multiplayer mode which allows players to both compete and co-operate with one another as well as gain tutelage in the form of a mentor request. Players can also generate and share content.

Although heavily marketed for its online gameplay, The Settlers 7 offers two major single-player modes. Whichever mode is chosen, the player generally begins with a simple village and expands it sector by sector to create a kingdom. During this process, the player must fine-tune their production chains and transport systems. The game is one of the first to introduce a new form of digital rights management for Ubisoft games known as the Online Services Platform. The protection was quickly defeated by the cracking scene, meaning the DRM restrictions and the need to connect to the Internet only affected legitimate purchasers of the game. Cracked copies had no such requirement. Reception has been generally positive, with some reservations, particularly revolving around the difficulty of the game.
