I just noticed that the all-new SH4 website is now live:

http://www.silenthunter4.com

Some of the content isn't in yet (e.g. the 'Encyclopedia' section), but there's some new eye candy in the 'Media' section.

I think the FAQ page contains some bits of new info.

Still no news of the pre-order goodies though http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Interesting VG I clicked on the forum link and got the infamous invalid for f error. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I thought the forum for SH4 was going to link back to SH3 forum but I presume it will have it's own forum when it's launched.

Another question is whether our current membership will carry over or will we have to come up with new names? I'd still like to think that Jambo here will be Jambo there, as with our other familiar friends.

@K61 - When you go into the SH4 site, if you're logged in into HSH3, at the very top it reads "Welcome 'Realjambo'" for me, so hopefully we'll all retain our same usernames.

Ehhhhmmm.....guys.....

Why do you think this forum was renamed from SH3 to Silent Hunter forum and has a SH-4 design now ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif


The forum-link on that website will send you back here. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

This is the SH-4 forum now. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

I believe the link does not work because the forum software has still problems. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

That's what I originally thought was going to happen Celeon. Can you imagine how many sticky threads we'd have? SH3 & SH4 forums combined? My head hurts at the prospect, but provided it's all clearly laid out (and works http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif, and is backed up http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) we might be OK.

Consider if Ubi follow the same 'template' as the Hitman series of games, the forums are all under one roof, so to speak, with the latest release 'Blood Money' dominating and enjoying more space and the previous titles' forums are below it.

Clarification please anyone? It would be nice to know.

The link seems OK now. Both the SH3 and SH4 websites link back to the same forum.

I think the plan is to keep the General Discussion forum exactly as it is. The Community Help and Community Creatives forums will initially stay as they are, but I think we will probably end up with dedicated Help/Creatives forums for each game, resulting in 5 Silent Hunter forums in total. This is what seems to have happened with the other Ubi forums, when the associated game has spawned sequels or expansions.

@K61 - membership is not exclusive to any one Ubi forum. It's a general Ubisoft account that you may use to post in any Ubi game forum. You also use the same account details if you log into the online shop or tech support pages.

Not so! This is the Silent Hunter forum http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

SH3 will only stop being relevant to this forum when we all stop talking about it! (which won't happen until Ubi returns to U-boats with SH5 - 'The Kaiser's Wolves' http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif)
