The new military sim from Trion, the same people who made Rift, has opened it's beta sign-ups to the public. You can sign up using the link above and you can wait and see if you will be in the beta which starts in around 14 days. Some nice news for those interested, is that the beta is not limited to those living in the NA region, but is open to pretty much anyone who wants to try, and is lucky enough to get into the beta.
For those curious about the game, here is a snip from the main site giving a run-down of the game:
Fight a worldwide war of unprecedented scale in End of Nations™, the revolutionary real-time strategy game from Trion Worlds. End of Nations is a groundbreaking new MMORTS where you fight monumental battles for global control of a massive persistent world.
Join allies from around the world to bring down the oppressive Order of Nations, or take on the opposing faction in epic battles of over 50 players, where one Commander can impact the ongoing conflict and every victory matters. As your skills and tactical experience grow, you will earn and unlock new units, abilities and super weapons to build and customize your ultimate army. Gather your forces, plan your attack, and lead the way to true global domination.
And a video trailer for the game as well:
From this, it looks like it could be a rather interesting online RTS type game, which to be quite frank, is something that could use a bit more filling than more grind-fest games. RTS isn't as appreciated in the online market as it should be, and before you jump the gun and find a reason to rage, I know there is SC/SC2, but we could always use more in the market, especially free ones.
Yes, that is right, the game is going to be free to play, in which they promise the game will -not- be pay to win. The only question that raises however, is how they will pull that off, which they answered in the FAQ. Luckily it looks like it is more for the convenience/cosmetic features that will be sold, than those that just make you dominate anyone who doesn't throw money at them. Which is good, and something more companies should be doing, especially those switching their games models from P2P to F2P.
