Anyone looking forward to Petroglyph's free-to-play MMORTS you will be disappointed. It's in the hands of another developer, and is something completely different now.
Troubled RTS MMO End of Nations has reappeared as "the first MOBA RTS", according to its website.
"End of Nations is a tactical MOBA where your success on the battlefield depends on the heroes and units you command and quick decision making in the heat of combat," it reads. "Dominate during team-based matches and catapult your commander to the top of the ranks."
A handful of the playable heroes are pictured and they're an uninspiring bunch - all vehicles apart from gun-toting mech. One of them, which looks like an ambulance with a turret on top, is named after Hippocrates, the Greek physician referred to as the father of western medicine. I see what they did there.
End of Nations dropped out of sight last December, when development was taken from creator Petroglyph and moved in-house to Trion. Evidently the beta-stage MMO RTS went under fierce review and the suits decided it didn't have much of a shot at success.
Beta sign-ups are happening now.
