War That Rises From The Ashes Of War: EndWar Online

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.

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.
