Exploring Trion's End of Nations for the PC

12:00 PM on 06.23.2010 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

End of Nations is Trion World's epic MMORTS set to come out sometime in 2011. Anarchy plagued the world after the economy collapsed but the superpower known as the Order of Nations restored peace through oppression. With every evil dictatorship, there will always be a group that will rise against evil, which is where you and thousands of other players come in.

While you will be able to play by yourself, it's best to play with others, especially since the enemy has a massive amount of heavily fortified bases. MMOs are obviously very social games that typically have bad community support. With End of Nations, you'll be able to see everything and anything your friends are doing like a feed on Facebook. This should prove to be incredible helpful especially since 50 players can do PvE battles while PvP will support around 20 versus 20 battles.

Your base of operation will also be an important part of the experience. This customizable home base will house all of your units and be where you will upgrade your units. The home base also acts as sort of a trophy room where you can show of your army to other players.

As for the combat, think any RTS military game but thrown into a MMO setting. I was only shown a small unit from one player, but I can only imagine just how crazy the map would look with a full team of 50 players. The graphics are rather gorgeous for an MMO too, with units and the environment being pretty detailed.

Combat isn't as simple as just sending your units off in a hell of glory either. The rock, paper, scissor mentality exists and some enemy units have to be destroyed in specific ways in order to progress. Trion showed off an instance where the rebels had to get through a giant defense wall that was also home to a large offensive cannon. The only way of getting through the barrier was to attack it as it's reloading since a section of the cannon is exposed with each reload.

All in all, End of Nations was looking pretty impressive. I'm not typically into MMOs, but this will be one exception for me thanks to the RTS element. In other news, I'm actually looking forward to an MMO. That's a first.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

Spooky yet totally true gaming fact: the bushes and the clouds in Super Mario Bros are the same exact shape. #Spooky

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.
