Anno Online mixes SimCity and Civilization (Beta Keys Inside)

Anno Online is a new free 2 play from Ubisoft.

quote:

As we stare at the metropolis of Kaysershaven – created by Anno Online’s fictional character Lord Northburgh, who guides you through the game’s tutorial – we can’t help but feel overwhelmed. His city is a thriving, well-planned sprawl of stone buildings, bustling marketplaces, and grand churches. Our settlement, on the other hand, is a dirty smattering of houses nestled between a forest and a stretch of coastline. We feel like simple country folk, and – even though he’s just a collection of sprites sat in our browser – we swear Northburgh is looking at us with distain.

Such is life at the start of Anno Online, a free-to-play city-builder that you can play inside your browser. We’ve been nurturing our fledgling empire for a few hours now, and the complexity is quite staggering. Not only do you have to carefully plan where you place buildings to make sure they’re all making the most of available resources, but you also have to ensure they’re part of an efficient supply chain. Place a residence too far from a church, for example, and settlers will refuse to move in because you’re not satisfying their spiritual well-being. As you dig deeper into the game, new residents become more and more picky – the price of a more civilized society.

I am looking forward to this. Love the Civ games, love Sim City, and Anoo 2070 is pretty fun. If this mixes the best of all 3 it may be awesome. It's also FREE!

have to scroll across the map with the arrow keys and that kinda sucks but other than that it's pretty cool so far

That's how I scroll in Civ so it's no big deal to me.

re: Anno Online mixes SimCity and Civilization (Beta Keys Inside)
i wonder how they will monetize the game? pay for buildings/features (pay to win) or pay for extras (freemium, pay to win faster)?

i fricking hate pay to win games.

eta: if they set it up like the settlers online it will be a fun game

its a browser game, so pretty much an internet connected computer made in the last decade

re: Anno Online mixes SimCity and Civilization (Beta Keys Inside)
well Ubisoft does the settlers online, so if they monetize this game the same way they do TSO it will be a hit. you dont feel compelled to pay for shite in TSO, its a true "pay to win faster" model.
i dont have time to try the beta, whats the gameplay like so far? im sure they will slow the resource gathering ability down quite a bit when it hits actual release.
