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.
Here's the new trailer.
And here's the brilliant one. The first time I watched it, I thought the word 'War' came up around four hundred times. Turns out it doesn't even reach double figures but there is that great moment when it seems like it's going to say - 'from the ashes of war, MORE FUCKING WAR, WAR THAT NEVER ENDS, END WAR, WAR WAR WAR WAR WAR, WAR-END'.
According to Nathan's earlier report, the endless wars of EndWar last for about three minutes.
