Silent Hunter Online is a free to play strategy browser MMO developed by Blue Byte in collaboration with Sproing and published by Ubisoft. The newest browser technologies combined with years of experience led to the creation of a submarine sim with great 3D realistic graphics and a competitive gameplay. The idea behind Silent Hunter Online is not a new one, the first game in this series came out years ago, but this is the first browser based Silent Hunter title. Co-op campaigns and full support for multiplayer are just some of the improvements Silent Hunter Online brings to the famous strategy franchise.
The Battle of the Atlantic is a massive campaign that involves all users on a server. Each Silent Hunter Online player brings his contribution but in the end it takes combined efforts to win this scenario. This is also called asynchronous gameplay. A unique feature, never seen in any other Silent Hunter installments, is that players team up to play missions together. The realistic campaign is set in World War II with players taking the role of submarine captains. Like in all previous Silent Hunter RTS games, Silent Hunter Online submarines are designed after real ones with an extreme level of details. Submarines can be customized and equipped with different types of damage dealing devices. Researching new technologies allows improvements and upgrades. Types II-A, VII-C42, VII-C and VII-A are the submarine models used by Silent Hunter Online commanders. Type II-A is an excellent choice for scouting missions, Type VII-C should be part of any assault mission and Type VII-A has great fire power.
Waves motion, night/day cycle, sound effects and weather conditions help create an atmosphere that makes Silent Hunter Online a submarine simulator MMO game worth to be part of the popular franchise. Battle scenes are vividly animated by graphic effects like smoke, explosions and so on. Battle odds can always change depending on the weather conditions or moment of the day and smart players should learn how to use all these to their advantage. Planning an attack is just as important as having a powerful squad so captains are encouraged to make good use of their maps, compasses, rules and protractors. Exciting PvP matches test players skills and strategy. Playing 1 vs. 1 is fun but those who wish to take on multiple enemies should join a Silent Hunter Online alliance of players (wolf packs).
