The lights are on
We're still not sure if Petroglyph's vision of an MMORTS is brilliant
or insane, but it looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out. At
this year's Eurogamer Expo, the game's publisher Trion Worlds announced that End Of Nations has
been pushed into 2012.
Never heard of End Of Nations? You can read Adam's
detailed impressions from E3, but the short story is that the game is
attempting to blend real-time strategy with the progression and social play of
an MMO. The game will feature both PvP and PvE gameplay and will have a
free-to-play mode, in addition to a subscription-based model.
End Of Nations was originally scheduled to release in late
2011, but now Trion is only announcing a vague 2012 release window. This seems like a good
idea for two reasons. First, the end of 2011 is already packed with triple-A
games that will be vying for attention from consumers. Second, how could you not release a game called End Of Nations
in 2012? It's clearly what the Mayan calendar has been counting down to!

End Of Nations?Never heard of this game,it's a strategy game right?If yes then i'm interested
This game looks truly fantastic. Rather they polish it up then release a finished product then give me patch after patch fixing bugs and glitches. MMORTS sign me up.
Sounds like a good game anyway, although I'd rather be able to do something like Mount & Blade but on a smaller scale - players go into 1st/3rd person controlling just one soldier, but with the ability to give basic commands to a group of followers. Large-scale strategy warfare is a bit overkill, in my opinion, for an MMO.
A game called End of Nations is releasing 2012? Something tells me the developer did this purpose.
I take it these are the same guys who did Rise of Nations?
Also lololol world ending in 2012 joke not funneh
Free to play, huh? Might try this out, I've only heard of it because I won an End of Nations t-shirt at a Gears 3 midnight release.
Never heard of this until now but it seems pretty obvious this was planned out.
They should either release this on 12/12/12 (be a copy of Skyrim though :P) or 12/21/2012 just to prove it is the End of Nations. Knowing it is a Trion product will show it will be of good quality.
The Mayan Calendar was obviously designed to predict video game release dates
End of nations = WestWood....So anyone excited? maybe not....because it got delayed D:
