The first concrete details on Ubisoft's new Tom Clancy franchise EndWar have reached the internet via Electronic Gaming Monthly, and we seem to be getting more excited with every morsel of info we hear.
In case you missed the initial announcement EndWar is essentially an RTS mish-mash of Clancy franchises built from the ground up for consoles.
Apparently it's being directed by ex-Creative Assembly man Michael de Plater, who worked on the legendary PC strategy series Total War.
After the first details appeared on the web last week, publisher Ubisoft has now released the first shots from its PS3 and Xbox 360 real-time strategy title, Tom Clancy's EndWar, for official online consumption.

As a console exclusive RTS, Ubisoft has promised that it will tinker with the traditionally PC-centric strategy template to make sure
The likes of Third Echelon, Team Rainbow and The Ghosts are all featured in Ubisoft's RTS, inspired by the Tom Clancy universe.
The team behind EndWar spent its time at the recent Ubidays event talking up its console strategy title while talking down the console RTS genre in general. Nothing wrong with that; we're still waiting for a console RTS that controls as smoothly as they do on PC. We have our fingers crossed though for EndWar though, and Halo Wars.
World War III has broken lose in
Ubisoft's content director, Julian Geright, has claimed that the upcoming Tom Clancy's EndWar game will change the way people will make games on consoles.
"This is the first game of its type and I don't think that games on console will be made the same after Endwar," he said. "It's kind of boastful, but I really do think that this is a watershed type of game."

Gamers who aren't satisfied with the eight existing Ghost Recon games and are looking for more than just the upcoming 360, PS3, DS, 3DS, and PC titles now have two more games to look forward to.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Predator, the first Ghost Recon PSP exclusive, is set in the jungles of Sri Lanka during preparations for an upcoming US invasion.
