Ubisoft announced today that the development of a new free-to-play browser game called Silent Hunter Online was going into closed beta stages.
Inspired by the highly-acclaimed submarine simulation series, Silent Hunter will use the power of Adobe Flash 11 to bring 3D graphics to the game.
Silent Hunter Online sees the return of the large array of historically accurate submarines that made the franchise famous, and invites players to experience them online in new ways. At the heart of the game is “the Battle of the Atlantic”, an innovative dynamic campaign in which individual successes impact all other players through asynchronous gameplay. Also, for the first time in the Silent Hunter series, players will be able to play every mission of the campaign in co-op.
“This is the most innovative Silent Hunter experience ever created and we can’t wait to let our fans dive into the game,” said Christopher Schmitz, Head of Production at Ubisoft Blue Byte.
