Today in gaming: Ubisoft announced that Anno Online -- an on-line version of their popular Anno game series -- has opened up a public beta and is inviting everyone to come and play the game. Current users who participated in the closed beta will keep their current games and receive a special bonus statue as a thanks for their continued participation.
The Anno series of games are real time strategy/city builder titles that give players the experience of being an administrator of a colonial European settlement from which you must explore the world and expand your sphere of influence. I played about three hours earlier and I thought it was quite good. I encourage anyone who enjoys strategy games to have a look.
