Silent Hunter Online Announced

Ubisoft announces Silent Hunter Online, an upcoming free-to-play, browser-based multiplayer game inspired by the Silent Hunter submarine simulation series. The Silent Hunter Online Website is online, offering a promotional trailer and sign-ups to be a beta tester. Here's a bit on the game:

Developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte®, the renowned studio behind popular PC game series such as The Settlers® and Anno, in collaboration with Sproing, Silent Hunter Online promises players a realistic, constantly evolving submarine simulation unlike any other. The game takes full advantage of Adobe Flash® Player 11 technology to bring stunning 3D graphics to browsers.

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.

Ugh. Meh. *sigh*. FFFFFF....

Mark this day, my friends. April 26th, 2012 - UbiSoft officially runs out of ideas. Who over there thought this was a good idea?! I'd like to know so I can go and kick them right in the ass (or 'arse', as the case may be ). They didn't think forward, they didn't go back and fix what was broken. No, instead, they plopped down right where they were and decided that the genre didn't need innovation. It needed Pay -2 - Win...uh, -ation...

Dammit, dammit, dammit! Looks like SH5 will be the last. Hell SH4 was the last decent one anyway. SH5 was just a crippled wannabe of SH3. You'd think they'd look out of the box and say, 'Hey! How about we have a dynamic Atlantic and Pacific campaign, a strategic mode to command fleets, and add other vessels like patrol/torp boats, destroyers, frigates, cruisers and battleships! Yeah, and then we could have them all seamlessly integrated! You know, like the 'Virtual Battlefield' we promised all those years ago and never really followed through with? Yeah, like that'...

Yeah, but then I slapped myself out of it and came back to suck-ass reality.

A SS Kickstarter, you say? Hmmm, very, very interesting, indeed! Roll with it, SpongeBob, roll with it!
