Today at Gamescom 2012, Ubisoft announced three new free-to-play games set in the universes of two of the company’s popular franchises: Anno Online, Might & Magic Heroes Online and Might & Magic Raiders. Ubisoft also announced the official launch of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online in 40 countries across Europe and North America.
All of Ubisoft’s free-to-play titles will be playable on PCs either via a Web browser or a simple client download. Anno Online and Might & Magic Heroes Online are being developed by Blue Byte, the Ubisoft studio behind The Settlers franchise and the latest installment of the Anno franchise, Anno 2070. Anno Online will be released this Fall and Might & Magic Heroes Online is targeted for release this winter. Might & Magic Raiders is being developed by Ubisoft Chengdu and will be released in 2013.
“The free-to-play market is growing rapidly thanks to the improving quality and flexibility in these new gaming experiences,” said Stephanie Perotti, Worldwide Director for Online Games, Ubisoft. “Ubisoft is taking the quality of core games and combining it with the best characteristics of online play to create free-to-play titles that will stand out from the crowd and reward customers already familiar with our popular game franchises.”
