End of Nations

Trion's newest title is End of Nations, a free-to-play real-time strategy MMO that focuses on tactics with over building up large sprawling fortresses. Players can choose between two factions, each with two separate classes, and pick from a variety of units to battle against other players in matches ranging from small 2 vs. 2 skirmishes to massive 26 vs. 26 full-scale wars.

Read Mike Kayatta's full preview of End of Nations here. The game is expected to arrive later this summer for the PC.

Mike Kayatta: Unlike most RTS games, EoN requires no base building, and no traditional resource management. Instead, before the game, players will assemble "companies," essentially customizable sets of units you'll default to during a match. The companies reminded me a bit of building a Magic: The Gathering deck; you have a certain number slots, and must balance what will be available to you for both offensive and defensive considerations. Unlike a card game, however, players are able to build three separate companies that can be swapped out in battle. This is great for when you've built a ground-combat-centric company, and suddenly find that your opponent is straight air. Instead of being helpless to fight back, hopefully you have an air or anti-air company ready to deploy.
