    Sweet. I wonder if this will really improve on any of the Tom Clancy series, or if it'll just be a remodeled version of the same game. (yes, I see that it says "built from the ground up" no need to point that out)

    Well, almost all of the Tom Clancy games have very similar gameplay. I crave something different in their series of games. I love his books, but his games are just okay to me.

    it's like Clancy's version of World in Conflict but with some really cool features apparently you can control the entire game through a headset by issuing voice commands to your units I think the story is based on his book but I do know this is the first RTS on the Unreal Engine 3.0 so it should be one of the prettiest strategy games of the year.

    World in Conflict is a great game, so now comes something like it from Ubisoft.

    Edit : man it will be FPS like "Frontlines: Fuel Of War" not a RTS!

    EndWar is an RTS not FPS it just has multiple camera angles easy way to tell is to look at the screen shots notice the models they are low poly. imagine UT3 with top down and having hundreds of units on screen with the high poly detail in the player models like in Gears or UT it would be so choppy.

    i remember when that game came out i was a freshman in college and i owned a decent 333mhz cpu / 128 meg ram / 8 meg matrox GPU and it ran pretty well at 1024x768 :laugh:

    but then i bought the 3dfx voodoo card with 8 megs of ram which was the first sli style, i could run the game at max res and detail which turned out to be a huge advantage in multiplayer.
