Ubisoft announces Silent Hunter 5

Prepare to dive into cinematic battles with strong enemy warships across the Atlantic and Mediterranean

Chertsey, UK – August 17, 2009Today, Ubisoft announces the fifth iteration of the highly acclaimed submarine simulation series with Silent Hunter® 5. Developed by Ubisoft Romania, Silent Hunter® 5 is the next installment of the best-selling submarine series of all-time and will be available for the PC in early 2010. Silent Hunter® 5 ventures into uncharted territory and takes players behind the periscope of a German U-boat to take on the Allied Forces in famous battles across the vast Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. For the first time in the history of the series, players can live the life of a submarine captain from a first-person view and lead a crew in a critical campaign.
Silent Hunter® is the most award-winning submarine series of all time, with nearly 1.5 million copies sold worldwide. The previous release in the franchise, Silent Hunter®: Wolves of the Pacific, made a lasting solid impact on the franchise’s growing fan base after it was released to worldwide critical acclaim, including being named 2007’s “Simulation Game of the Year” by PC Gamer.

Silent Hunter® 5 key features:

• VIEW AS A CAPTAIN: Walk through highly detailed submarines in the new first-person view and access every part of your U-boat.
• BECOME A REAL LEADER: Interact with your crew, watch them perform their daily jobs and experience the tension and fear inside the U-boat through the new advanced order system.
• WAR STRATEGIES: Choose your own strategy and select your targets with a new objective-driven, dynamic campaign.
• ENEMY REACTIONS: Open new locations, upgrades and resupply possibilities, while the Allied ships adjust dynamically to your approach. Your actions will directly impact the evolution of the campaign.
• NEW USER INTERFACE: Prowl the waters with a brand-new user interface. Now, every beginner can successfully command a sub while remaining free of confusion. In expert mode, experienced players will be provided all the necessary information and controls to command the sub completely on their own.
CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE: Experience the most realistic and immersive Silent Hunter ever created. Improved environment graphics create a powerful level of immersion as you operate authentic, highly detailed U-boats and fight against surface ships.
Silent Hunter®5 is scheduled for release in early 2010.

Im am actually a bit afraid of this game.For some reason i wonder should gwx team stop gwx4 and wait for the new game and then resume work.(though that would greatly slow down the work because of the new chalanges that the new engine will probably bring with it.)
It is nice that everything will be animated so the sub will feel alive but i hope there will be full german audio since the trailer was like i was watching something about sh4.Atleast to me it seems the only good thing this game will have above gwx4 (or atleast as i expect it to be) will be the fully animated enviroment.

It brings somehow mixed feelings in me.

So far that's the only novel aspect, and it's far from breathtaking. As for the rest - just more of the same :yawn:
Why don't they make a WW1 Uboat sim for a change, if it really has to be diesel-electrics? If Ubi did something like Shells of Fury, I'd nearly wet myself. But SH5 - no thanks, I'll stick with SH3. At least I won't have to buy a new computer to run it :shifty:
