The Settlers: New Allies release event and Twitch drops
Posted on Feb 17, 2023
The day is finally here! The Settlers: New Allies is being released and to celebrate, you can earn Twitch Drops by watching streamers play the game for you!
Okay, truth be told: I'm an Anno 1800 guy. But that doesn't mean I'm not excited for the new Settlers game to be released and with all the news surrounding the game (bad and good) I'm anxious to see what Ubisoft is releasing.
Also, I like freebies 😁
So you bet I'm going to watch some Twitch Streamers play The Settlers: New Allies this week!
What can you earn
There are three items you can earn as Twitch drops while watching streams (as opposed to the usual 2 for Anno streams). They are:
- In-game title "Artist"
- Paintbrush Borderstone
- Colourful Reminder Borderstone
They're all three cosmetic items, so they won't give you an advantage over another player when you have these.
The real advantageis in the knowledge you have gained. You have been watching a streamer play the game, figuring things out as they go along. That means you have a head start when you start playing The Settlers: New Allies for yourself!
On the Ubisoft page you'll find a whole list of Twitch streamers that have the Twitch Drops enabled. Again: I'm an Anno guy and these streamers are all new to me, so I can't advise one.
PachucoMcPower has scheduled a stream in German on Sunday February 19th between 18:00 and 21:00 (GMT+1 I guess, timezones suck, you should check his Twitch schedule to make sure).
Titoubo is actually live right now, streaming in French.
SUBZERO2K has two streams planned for Friday 17th and Saturday 18th, both from 11:00 to 15:00, but they're nameless so far. Possibly he'll stream The Settlers: New Allies?
Apart from that, there doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in streaming this new Ubisoft game... maybe next week?
How to earn Twitch Drops
While you watch qualifying Twitch Streamers, a counter is making sure you are watching.
After having watched the requisite amount of time, the drop will be available to claim through your Twitch Inventory.
Of course, you will need to link your Ubisoft and Twitch accounts. Haven't done so yet? Follow this guide to get you all set up!
