Today Ubisoft and Blue Byte have announced the Open Beta launch for Silent Hunter Online. With the start of the Open Beta players around the world can slip into the role of submarine commanders during WWII and fully immerse themselves into the Battle of the Atlantic.
Silent Hunter Online is a browser based Free-to-Play submarine simulation game developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte in co-operation with Sproing. Players take position on board their submarines, hunt down enemy convoys, manage their personal flotillas and partake in server-wide dynamic campaigns. With a strong focus on multiplayer experience, every mission in the game can be played cooperatively.
Silent Hunter Online is based on a powerful graphics engine. Ocean waves and the vastness of the sea are being displayed in stunning 3D ‘ without the need to install a game client. All in-game ship models are rendered in full detail and thus provide an unforeseen level of visual realism. Dynamic weather effects, authentically simulated waves and changing daytimes ensure gameplay variety during missions and create an immersive atmosphere. Impressive environmental effects like dense walls of fog, strong swell, stormy rain showers or idyllic sunsets on the open sea further enhance the gameplay experience. Thanks to an advanced particle system, battles at sea feature spectacular explosions, fire and smoke effects.
