Ubisoft's Blue Byte studio celebrates its 25th anniversary, brings the classic strategy series online
Ubisoft today announced the start of the closed beta test for Panzer General Online, a turn-based strategy browser game developed by Blue Byte in close collaboration with Funatics Software. Providing comprehensive control of all the elements involved in the theater of war, including airplanes, infantry, tanks and more, Panzer General Online allows players to command units based on historically-inspired battles.
In both single-player and multiplayer modes, users are taking control of an army made of legendary units like Tiger Tank or Nebelwerfer rocket Launcher. The single-player campaign allows them to take part in historically-inspired battles such as Monte Casino or the Battles of the Bulge. In the multiplayer mode, players will be able to challenge each other and discover which one is the finest strategist and has the best war's skills.
Panzer General Online also incorporates a trading card system: during their playing experience, users can collect and trade virtual miniatures of tanks, infantry and artillery to create their own personalized army.
