Ubisoft has announced that the English-language closed beta for Anno Online has been launched. The game, which bases itself on Anno 1404, is a free-to-play and browser-based strategy multiplayer game.
Players will find themselves stranded on a deserted island with only two buildings (a harbour and a warehouse), and force themselves to use available resources to build their eventual empire. The multiplayer aspect comes in the form of a guild system where gamers can team up with friends. The guild feature won't be active til mid-May, however.
Gamers can check out Anno Online on the official site .
