Ubisoft today announced Tom Clancy's EndWar Online, a free-to-play browser-based game for PC and Mac. In development at Ubisoft Shanghai--the same team behind 2008's Tom Clancy's EndWar for consoles--the game is described as a "tactical and strategic MMO."
EndWar Online will feature real-time battles, HQ and army management, and "massive" community-based wars. This is all set in "next stage" browser technology, Ubisoft said.
In EndWar Online, players are put into the shoes of the last leader in the aftermath of World War III. In this time, resources and money have run out and communities are on the brink of collapse as rogue warlords have taken control.
Players must rebuild their homeland by reuniting their faction and leading a battle for earth's remaining resources. Gamers can enlist as either the "high-tech" European Enforcers or Russia's Spetnaz, described as a group that uses "brute force tactics."
EndWare Online features single-player and player vs. player challenges, Ubisoft said.
"We have been looking for a way to bring EndWar back to its fans and have found an accessible way with Tom Clancy’s EndWar Online," Ubisoft EMEA FTP publishing director Thomas Painçon said. "By offering gameplay directly in browsers, we hope old fans and new alike will enjoy this new EndWar experience and join in the quest to lead their faction to victory."
EndWar Online is currently in beta. Those interested can sign up through the game's new website.
