Ubisoft have announced the development of Silent Hunter Online, a new free-to-play Submarine simulation game. The title, in development at Ubisoft Blue Byte (the team behind games like The Settlers and Anno), uses Adobe's Flash 11 technology to bring what Ubisoft describe as "stunning 3D graphics" to web browsers.
From the press release:
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 game-play. Also, for the first time in the Silent Hunter series, players will be able to play every mission of the campaign in co-op.
