Ubisoft is to resurrect the Tom Clancy EndWar brand.
Having done the same with the Ghost Recon IP, EndWar is to get the free-to-play browser treatment. It’s being developed at Ubisoft Shanghai and will be released on PC and Mac.
It will be both single and multi player and allow users to “engage in numerous single player missions or put your skills to the test in intense player vs player challenges in an epic power struggle for what little remains on Earth”.
The narrative is set in the aftermath of World War III and follows the original game’s lead in seeing Europe, the US and Russia square off. Ten unit types are included, each of which can be upgraded several times.
As you would expect, players will be able to purchase in-game currency with real cash although Ubisoft stresses that the “full” experience will be available even to those who choose not to splash out.
EndWar Online is due to launch before the end of the year.
