On catan.de, Klaus Teuber posted a first blog about the upcoming fourth full expansion for Settlers of Catan. Apparently it will feature discovery voyages with mobile ship units in the vein of "Colonies", with new hex fields to be discovered, starting from a central island.

Projected release date for the German edition is the Nuernberg game fair in February 2013.

So far I can only speculate what we will see - I expect elements from Spacefarers, the discovery scenario in the third Rivals of Catan game and possibly Spaceship Catan to join some of the ideas published in "Das Buch" such as Transport Settlers, The Fleets or Colonies, but I am perfectly willing to be surprised by different mechanics.

I hope there will be a better integration for Cities and Knights than in Traders and Barbarians.

"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo. "So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

Now that we have our own boats, we can take the fight to them!

Funny you should say that... I built such a scenario.

If you can read a little German, scroll down until you see the proposed gameboard:

It's "copy and paste-able", so we could always leave that to an online translation engine.
