Tom Clancy’s EndWar Online is free browser game, beta sign-ups open now
Tom Clancy’s EndWar Online has been revealed by Ubisoft as a free-to-play browser game that is pegged loosely for a 2013 launch.
IGN reports that the MOBA game is being developed for PC and Mac by Ubisoft Shanghai, and is a spin-off from the original Endwar rather than a sequel. It takes place after World War 3 as rival factions fight for what remains of Earth across single-player missions or multiplayer battles.
Players can command either the European Enforcers or Russian Spetsnaz, while managing resources, economy and strategic warfare. There are currently ten units in the game including various vehicle types, and there will be more than 80 “hero units” to enlist in the field.
In particular, the game’s economy is spread across Battle Economy used for command points and HQ Economy which is topped up via resources scavenged in the world. These meters can also be topped up using real-world money, although Ubisoft has stressed that micro-payments only apply to convenience and cosmetic items.
