Ubisoft’s Anno Online has opened the city gates for an open beta, granting all access to the free-to-play city building strategy game. Interested lords and ladies should set course to anno-online.com for access. New players logging in during the first week of the open beta will receive a “premium ship.” Players who participated in the closed beta will receive several rewards. The greatest gift? Their data won’t be wiped per the standard beta transition, so they can continue on.
