Browser-Sized Battles: Ubisoft Announces Panzer General Online

I'm beginning to think Ubisoft is developing an obsession for Free-to-Play browser-based games. Ubisoft if you're listening, one every once in a while won't hurt anyone, but repeated abuse can lead to adverse consequences. Just remember that in the future.

Ubisoft has once again enlisted the help of their internal studio Blue Byte in order to create Panzer General Online, a turn-based wargame for browsers. In true Ubisoft fashion, Panzer General Online is based on an older established series by the same name. Players take turns commanding armies of tanks, planes and infantry across the Battle of Omaha Beach, the Battle of Monte Cassino, and other well known historical battles that took place during World War 2.

In an era where many Free-to-Play strategy games forgo a single-player experience, players in Panzer General Online will be able to play in both single-player and multiplayer modes. The single-player mode will mainly serve as a tutorial, guiding the player through iconic battles before sending them off to the "real war" against players.

Much like a trading card game (in fact exactly like a trading card game), players will be able to collect and trade their units with others in order to create their own personal army.

While currently devoid of any real additional information regarding Panzer General Online, the official website does have signups available for those interested in participating in the closed beta later this year.

believe me... you don't want to play any Browser games released by UPLAY

indeed it has great graphic art (by design)
but everything else is so limited, look at The settler online
I play that game for almost a year... a year...
3 Queue building, and only 1 build at a time
2 mnt searching rock mine
6 hours to find gold mine
and 7 DAYS to upgrade your building to lv5
and it's not functional while upgrading...

I really don't understand what they were thinking people will stay to play with that kind of gameplay.
