Ministry Of War: Even Bigger Beta Giveaway

The beta for intriguing MMO RTS Ministry Of War is opening up, and you guys can get your access to this phase through this link – specially for RPS readers!

For a browser-based RTS it’s looking pretty complex, featuring a number of historical factions with their own hero characters, player-driven trading economics, PvP and Guild vs Guild battles, and the ability to travel about with your merchants, trading as you go. Developers Snail need as many people as possible for this next stage of their testing, so go give it a look.

    Did they have war ministries in Ancient times?

    • The Pink Ninja says:

      On the other hand I guess ever other possible RTS title that has the word “War” in it is already taken.

    • Jim Rossignol says:

      I still like “War? WAR!” as a name. And then there’s the still-as-yet-unused War Of War.

    • Kommissar Nicko says:

      “War: War of Wars” would satisfy mankind’s deep psycho-sexual attachment to colons.

    • Kommissar Nicko says:

      The above post, in retrospect, is working on a lot of levels.

      A lot.

    • AndrewC says:

      Before man, the animals battled for domination in: War Roar!

      Before land, domination was battled for on sea in: Oar War!

      After both man and land, hunters from the future fight for domination in: Yor War!

      Oar War, Yor War or War Roar: the War warriors war for your ‘ore’.

    Looks like they’ve got something for everyone – the immense phallic hats a la Kessen and all the bazooms and midriffs you could want.

    The bazookas on the redhead on their main site are quite impressive to say the least. Duck and cover?

    Alternate title: Battle Boobs

    i would have hoped with a name like Ministry of War there’d be infighting, procurement and other logistical issues. No actual warring going on at all. In fact a World War II era game like this starting under Neville Chamberlain and all the drama within might be pretty compelling. Especially if there’s no direct way to change Prime Ministers.

    Grass grows quicker than the game moves. And to say it has a steep learning curve is to underestimate its intricacies. For the anal retentive type RTS player methinks.

    I think it moves as fast as you want it to move, for an RTS. I’m in the beta and attacking other civs while I’m building and trading.
