Tom Clancy's EndWar will be publicly beta-tested later this year, judging by comments made by creative director Michael de Plater in an interview with Eurogamer. Ooh, that's us.
"We really believe that as soon as anyone can get their hands on the controls and experience it, it'll be something new and it's a level of immersion and realism and accessibility that's never really been in a strategy game," he said during Ubisoft's Parisian showcase yesterday.
"We're really focusing on getting our beta-test out for November."
De Plater also made it clear that the Tom Clancy World War III scenario outlined in EndWar could form the basis for other projects. "As you can see from looking at World War II [games], World War III is something that can be big enough to be explored from loads of different directions, loads of different theatres, genres - we really see this as the beginning of that," he said.
EndWar - a console strategy title that offers voice command support as well as pad controls, and has been developed from the ground up for consoles - is previewed elsewhere on the site today. Now, actually. Get.
