Ubisoft has today announced that ANNO Online’s English closed beta phase has started. Developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte, ANNO Online combines the popular gameplay elements of the ANNO franchise with brand new features suited to a persistent, web-based videogame.
ANNO Online draws its mechanism from ANNO 1404; the main goal for players is to bring life to their islands, thanks to one thousand buildings and many decorative items helping players to create the nicest islands ever imagined in a browser videogame. All graphical elements stay true to the franchise quality, trade by ships remains essential for the videogame, and ANNO Online will also offer various multiplayer possibilities which are going to enhance the deep economic system of the Anno IP.
From today onwards, Ubisoft gives players the opportunity to create their account on the official website http://www.anno-online.com/, while Electronic Theatre is currently offering closed beta access keys to our readers over on the Win an ANNO Online Closed Beta Access Key! competition page.
