Ubisoft has announced that the North American closed beta for Anno Online has officially kicked off. Anno Online is a F2P browser-based title based on the popular sim-strategy Anno 1404 game.
GUILD SYSTEM COMING MID-MAY
Anno Online will introduce new persistent online gameplay possibilities and offer players the opportunity to cooperate with friends thanks to the Guild System, set to release in mid-May. This Guild System will allow players to create their own Guilds, choose a name and tag, and invite up to 25 members to join. The guild can then establish a larger strategy thanks to the guild chat channel. Guilds will have access to a new building, the Guild Hall building, which will allow members to gather together.
Interested players can sign up for the beta on the Anno Online site.
