Ubisoft and Blue Byte today announced the highly anticipated open beta launch for their World War II submarine combat MMO, Silent Hunter Online. The game offers similar mechanics and depth to that of World of Tanks but with stunning 3D visuals and an exciting variety of features as players battle for control of the Atlantic.
Silent Hunter Online is a free-to-play browser MMO that gives players complete control over their own World War II submarine as they personalize their flotillas and enjoy server-wide dynamic campaigns with a strong focus on the multiplayer experience.
·Authentic boat types: The Silent Hunter series has always been a benchmark for historical authenticity in gaming. True to this tradition, Silent Hunter Online includes a great number of historical boat types the player can either command – or destroy.
·Dynamic Campaign: All players participate in a global, server-wide campaign and work together to turn the tides of war in their favor.
·Multiplayer experience: Submarines are hunter and prey at the same time. To stand a better chance against enemy fleets, players can team up online and form wolfpacks.
·Stunning battles: Silent Hunter Online takes full advantage of the latest Flash 11 technology to display real-time 3D combat in your browser.
