The lights are on
Ubisoft and BlueByte have announced that the closed beta for Anno Online in North America has now begun. Players interested in seeing how the medieval kingdom/shipping simulator plays can see for themselves after signing up on the game's official site.
The browser-based game is adapted from Anno 1404. Players build an empire from scratch, or at least close to it. When play begins, players only have a harbor and a warehouse. From there, it's all about resource management and trade. Ubisoft says additional features will be rolling out, starting with a guild system in mid-May.
