That Sinking Feeling: At Sea With Silent Hunter Online

There's no such thing as playing fair when you're the captain of a submarine. It's your job to hide, literally, under the radar; to hit your enemy when they're least expecting it and be away before swift retaliation arrives to send you drowning to Davy Jones' endless locker. Silent Hunter Online is a cut-down version of the experience, but looks to make up for it…

Might And Magic Heroes Online Begins Quest For F2P

Might and Magic Heroes Online (not to be confused with the recently closed Heroes Of Might And Magic Online) looks a hell of a lot like regular Might and Magic Heroes. That's a good thing. It's got microtransactions and maps where you'll see other players running around, but when battle starts, it's to that familiar zoomed-in view you'll be taken, and the same strategy that…

Death From Below: Silent Hunter Online

It's only a matter of time before every game is released for free and not long after that, people will realise that in many cases that 'free to play' aspect is a little like a shop not charging admittance. There may still be a bouncer on the door, his fists like cans of spam, checking that you have a stable internet connection before he lets…

Eco Worrier: Hands On With Anno 2070

Blue Byte's futuristic take on their competitive trading and town-building series, Anno 2070, is just a couple of weeks away, and I've had a chance to play with some of the sandbox elements of the game to get a taste of it. Head below for some thoughts on this near-future near-strategy! Or don't. YOU DECIDE.

Annotated: Blue Byte Talk Anno 2070

Blue Byte's trading and building game Anno has leapt from the past into the future for its next instalment, Anno 2070, which is due to arrive on our shores on November 17th. We thought we'd have a chat with the game's lead producer, Christopher Schmitz, to confirm a few details of what to expect from the sci-fi reworking on the classic strategy series.

Future Wars: Anno 2070 Gets Militant

Anno 2070 is a vision of what cities will be like when I'm either dead or an incredibly doddery old chap with a cybernetic toupee, and I've been pleased by the promise of its glistening underwater cities. Despite the terrible lack of resources facing our fragile globe, I'd quite enjoy retiring to one of those sea-bubbles. But, of course, someone had to go and spoil…

Prosperity & Cool Sci-Fi Tech: Anno 2070

The surprise futuristic entry in the Anno citybuilding series - Anno 2070 - has got a new video, showing off 3 minutes of mostly game footage. I hope you don't think I'm crazy when I say I'm picking up a vague (very vague) Alpha Centauri vibe from this trailer. Sure, there's no mind worms or nerve-staples on display, but it's still pushing some of the…

Anno 2070 Trailer Shows Off Underwater City

We were pretty gosh-darned excited when we learned that excellent trade and building series Anno was going to continue its exploits in the near future, but the glimpses of futuristic island cities were only half of it: the full game of Anno 2070 will contain underwater colonies, too. This game is all about painting a portrait of a (frankly fairly likely) near-future of scarce resources…

Settling Settlers 7 Beta Sign-ups

Ubisoft have announced that the beta test for new management-strategy sequel Settlers 7 will take place from 19th of January, but it's limited to North America and the United Kingdom residents. You can sign up over here, but it does require a Fileplanet account. I know! All these conditions... The beta will encompass both multiplayer and single player elements of the game, which is looking…

Ve(ry)nice To See Anno-ther Game

The solid and satisfying medieval city-building and trading sequel from earlier this year is going to get an expansion in February 2010. "Venice" will include a new Venetian faction, and an accompanying infiltration and sabotage feature set. What's probably more exciting for existing Anno 1404 (Dawn of Discovery in North America) players is that it also features eight-player co-op and versus multiplayer for the sandbox…

Wot I Think: Anno 1404: Dawn Of Discovery

Sea-trading city-builder Anno 1404 (or Dawn Of Discovery in North America) has sailed into our critical harbour to unload large bales of real-time medieval economics. Will it attract gaming patricians? Or could it simply be a peasant's hovel furnished with old-school resource management? Here's Wot I Think.
