Today is a good day, Generals. After a couple of months of Tech Assault playtests and multiple game feature iterations, plus balancing and testing new content, battle systems, PvP matchmaking, and adding new Commanders, advanced equipment, new exiting maps, and last but not least, pushing our server infrastructure to the limits, we are proud to announce that the EndWar Online Alpha has begun! We will spare you the details of how many cups of coffee and green tea our team has consumed during the past six months, but believe me, one Olympic swimming pool would not be enough to contain it. But this isn’t the end of our journey. No, this is just the beginning.
During the Alpha phase, a limited number of dedicated Generals will be invited to test EndWar Online’s most comprehensive build to date.
To celebrate this important milestone, we’d like to give you a first look at the latest version in our EndWar Online walkthrough video. Keep in mind that this footage comes from a very early build. Much of what you see here is going to change as the game develops and as we fine tune the gameplay based on the data and feedback we’ll receive from Alpha players. There’s quite a lot we want to show you, so let’s get started!
To mark the occasion, we also prepared a special edition of our SITREP show! This time we answer all the questions we didn’t have time to address during our Uplay Lounge livestream at E3. Are there other factions planned? What’s the funniest bug we’ve encountered? How did we do at the Uplay Lounge event? We’ll get into all this and much more.
Last, but not least, here are a couple of tips on how you can enter the EndWar Online Alpha:
- 1. An official email invitation from us. In order to maximize your chance to be selected, make sure that you have completed as many tasks as possible from the Beta Boost program and that you are an active contributor on the official EndWar Online Facebook page as well as the EndWar Online forums. Former Tech Assault players will be given queuing priority.
2. The Alpha Lucky Draw. As openings in the Alpha become available, we will give players who did not receive invitations a chance to be randomly chosen as an Alpha tester! All you have to do to take part in the draw is register or sign up with your Uplay account, click “Play Alpha Now,” and try your luck at the Lucky Draw. You can participate once per day, so keep trying and you may be granted immediate access to the game!
You can also check out our EndWar Online Alpha events. During the event Alpha players can earn some substantial rewards by completing special missions. Get more details on the missions and events at the official website.
Good luck, Generals. We’ll see you on the battlefield!

We answered this question in one of our very early appearances on UbiBlog: http://blog.ubi.com/tom-clancys-endwar-online-community-qa/
There are many reasons, but our Creative Director explains it best :)
I hope you'll give it a try!
