Anno Online Overview
Anno Online was a browser-based MMORTS based on Ubisoft’s popular Anno series of RTS games. It features many of the common trappings of a browser-based MMORTS where you build a city from the ground up, using time and resource management to build your wealth and eventually expand your empire across multiple islands. Less commonly found is its combat system, which uses a Fire Emblem-esque strength/weakness triangle to inspire tactical placement and minimal losses as you fight pirates on the seas with your navy. The game offers many different buildings, upgrades and residents that shine due to its high production values, with detailed and fully-animated artwork. It is also notable for its lack of PvP, giving it a more casual, collaborative and friendly atmosphere than other MMORTS games and may more easily appeal to beginners to the genre.
Anno Online Key Features:
- Strategic Naval Combat – fight pirates and enemies with three kinds of ships: Brig, Galley, and Caravel, picking the best ship type to suit the battlefield.
- Friendly Community – the game’s lack of PvP fosters a more nurturing community, making it easy to make friends and get help making your empire great.
- Building Modernization – upgrade buildings into newer, more modern buildings to make the game feel like society is really advancing.
- Resource Management – balance your empire’s resources to keep your residents happy and your cities growing rapidly.
- Production Value – detailed and fully-animated artwork.
