Closed beta for Panzer Dragoon Online started for players of the English version today.
The classic Panzer General series has been reborn as Panzer General Online, the web browser based free to play tactical strategy game. Rejoice.
Panzer General Online entered closed beta for English speaking players today- the new title, developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte in close collaboration with Funatics Software, returns players to the WWII battlefield, allowing them to take control of armies with units as varied and devastating as the Tiger Tank or Nebelwerfer rocket Launcher. The single player campaign allows players to relive historically accurate scenarios such as Monte Casino or the Battles of the Bulge. Meanwhile, the multiplayer mode will allow players to pit their skills against each other.
Panzer General Online is a reboot and reimagining of the classic franchise, due out sometime later this year for all PCs. It utilizes the same free to play model that Ubisoft utilized to such great effect in another one of their classic franchises, Anno, with Anno Online.
