he'll probably post something here to describe some of the difference from a first-hand perspective..
One thing that should be noticable, however, is the fact that WiC takes place in 1989 ( I think ), while Endwar takes place some 30 odd years later. I don't think it's geared towards a persistent multiplayer experience where you are just one leader amongst many others trying to win the war for your side ( thousands of players perhaps ). The battles will be smaller in scale than a regular MMO, but they will contribute to the overall war nonetheless, whereas WiC will probably have multiplayer skirmishes, but nothing as integrated as what we're being shown in Endwar.
Also, the camera of Endwar will be closer on the units, giving you a view of the battlefield based on what they see, and not the standard top-down, isometric view we see in current strategy games.
Also..this game takes place in the Clancy-verse, which pwn's the living daylights out of any other fabricated universe known to man.
