Ubisoft has announced Silent Hunter Online, a free-to-play, browser-based game, inspired by the Submarine Simulation series.
"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," says Ubisoft.
"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 game-play. Also, for the first time in the Silent Hunter series, players will be able to play every mission of the campaign in co-op."
It's currently in development at Ubisoft Blue Byte, utilising Flash Player 11 technology to bring the game to life in full 3D without leaving your web browser.
