Ubisoft reports that "Tom Clancy’s EndWar", the newest brand in the Tom Clancy series of video games, is now available.

The game goes beyond other 'war games' by allowing players to use their own voice to control units, offering command of the action.

"By allowing players to control the game entirely with their voice, the launch of Tom Clancy’s EndWar marks a strategic shift in the way games can be played,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft.

"Ubisoft is revolutionizing gaming with the release of EndWar and we believe it will serve as the catalyst for the success of strategy games on consoles.”

“We are seeing a major trend in intuitive interfaces augmenting and even replacing standard controller-based input in video games,” said Billy Pidgeon, Research Manager, Consumer Markets: Games, IDC.
