Ubisoft has announced that a retail starter pack for The Settlers Online, the browser-based free-to-play strategy game set in the Settlers Universe, will be available across retail channels from March 29, 2012.

In the UK, the Starter Pack will be available exclusively from the Ubishop for £11.99.

The Settlers Online Starter Pack will include in-game currency (2500 gems), buildings providing you with infinite resources, and an exclusive battle hardened general to help lead your armies to victory.

In addition, to celebrate Easter, an all-new in-game event will commence March 29, bringing new quests, adventures, special buildings, a new General and a Raving Rabbid statue! During the event, players will need to search for Easter Eggs, the event currency, which will allow them to purchase in-game items.
