War That Rises From The Ashes Of War: EndWar Online

By Adam Smith on February 25th, 2014.

A new trailer for EndWar Online informs us that the browser-based MOBA-like will be undergoing a three-day test phase beginning this Thursday. You can register to be part of this pre-beta test, which has the callsign Tech Assault, by registering at the official website. The new trailer is a hyperactive cinematic so I looked back at an earlier video to see how the game plays. I’ve embedded both below. The longer trailer is quite impressive, beginning with the words ‘Middle East Nuked’ and rapidly escalating to the terrible consequence of that action – ‘Oil Prices Soar’. At one point the text declares, ‘You thought it was over but war never ends’. I hadn’t realised that the title was a futile command.

Tom Clancy’s Endwar Returning… As A Browser MOBA

By Nathan Grayson on September 11th, 2013.

The only way to end war is with more war.

Everyone, calm down. It’s OK. Tom Clancy’s ENDWAR– ahem, Endwar (which is the one game I actually wish its creators would refer to entirely in caps) isn’t dead. I know you were all terribly worried, but you can breathe easily now. Use both lungs instead of just one. Stop shoving entire wine corks up your nostrils. As it turns out, Endwar’s war to end all wars did not, in fact, end war, so Endwar Online will pick up its warring right where Endwar ended. There is, however, a twist: the new game under Endwar’s shell-shocked umbrella isn’t really an RTS. If anything, I’d say it’s closer to a fusion of MOBA-style roles/progression and tower defense mechanics. Also, the whole thing’s browser-based, and the goal is for matches to last roughly three minutes a piece. Witness the beginning of the end(war) in trailer form after the break.

Tom Chick on Endwar: Is Less More?

By Kieron Gillen on March 26th, 2009.

War is over, if we want it, etc.

This is the sort of thing I’d normally save for the weekend’s Sunday Papers, but I realised that EndWar has come out on the PC and we haven’t really talked about it. Reason being, I suspect, it hasn’t really impressed the RPSers who’ve explored it. Hotkey-expert Tom Chick is painfully aware that he appears to be is in the minority in appreciating it (“Looking for a multiplayer game of EndWar on the PC has a very “I Am Legend” feel.”) but that hasn’t stopped him taking a swing at ten reasons why EndWar is a totally unique RTS game and well worth more attention. It’s deliberately, gleefully perverse. To quote from its conclusion “10. EndWar has no depth. 9. EndWar has no variety. 8. EndWar has a dull economy”. So… what did everyone else make of it? And for those who don’t know anything about it, you’ll find the PC launch trailer beneath the cut…

EndWar Delayed Because “Piracy’s killing PC”

By John Walker on October 8th, 2008.

Ubisoft launch an airstrike on the PC : (

Sorry to get into this again, but as much as I want to ignore it, this one’s significant. Ubisoft have stated that they’re artificially delaying the launch of EndWar on PC because of, you guessed it, piracy.

Talking to VideoGaming247, Ubisoft Shanghai director and former Total War “Evangelist”, Michael de Plater said,

“To be honest, if PC wasn’t pirated to hell and back, there’d probably be a PC version coming out the same day as the other two.”

E3: The Trailers – Tom Clancy’s (yeah right) Endwar

By Alec Meer on July 17th, 2008.

Does anyone under 50 even read Tom Clancy books anyway?

So, “your voice is the ultimate weapon.” I’ll be honest – while I’ve no doubt all that Ubi money can make something that (unlike the horrible Will of Steel) works, I’m finding it hard to believe that Tom Clancy’s voice controls will be anywhere near as slick and forgiving as the below Tom Clancy’s trailer for this Ubi-RTS suggests. However, Tom Clancy’s walkthrough beneath the cut has me genuinely anticipating Tom Clancy’s Endwar.
