As much as artificial intelligence has progressed in recent years, nothing beats the thrill of taking down a live opponent. EndWar is looking to make that thrill even more powerful by adding a persistent online war between three factions vying for control of key locations. To learn more about how the multiplayer game is coming together, IGN went to Michael de Plater, creative director for EndWar.
IGN: Will the public get to play a multiplayer beta or demo before the game releases?
Michael de Plater: Absolutely they will. All our playtests have shown that it doesn't matter how much I brag about the game, people really "get it" when they have the controller in their hands and start issuing orders via the voice command. So giving gamers an early taste of the EndWar is key.
