The Settlers IV: The Trojans and the Elixir of Power is the second add-on for The Settlers: Fourth Edition and introduces the Trojans as a new, playable faction including their own 12 mission campaign with new music and new cutscenes. During the story the player, as the Trojans, needs to prevent Morbus from finding and using the Elixir of Power which would make him invincible. The fact that he stole the knowledge about how to build flying machines from the Trojans and now uses them against them makes things not easier.

The add-on also features a new campaign for each of the other factions and an additional campaign for the peaceful settler. Each faction also has new spells available and the Trojans get access to a new unit called the Backpack Catapult Carrier. Other additions include the return of the observation window which allows the player to keep an eye on a part of the map in a small, additional window. Included are also 26 new single and multiplayer maps, an updated map editor allowing the creation of Trojan missions and an updated AI which uses the resources on the map more intelligently.
