Trinium Wars will sunset at the end of the the month

Get your playtime in now, folks: Trinium Wars will sunset at the end of the the month.

A spokesperson for InselGames confirmed to us that the game's final day will be August 31st. It has already been removed from Steam.

Trinium was a remake of Jang Wook Lee's Living After War (L.A.W.), a post-apoc MMO that betaed back in 2012 and also sunsetted. The remake launched on Steam this past March as a buy-to-play title, then went free-to-play in May.

Our condolences go out to the team and all players affected.

 Good, that was the worst shovelware I have downloaded in the past two years. I feel like I should be paid by the developers for the degradation it caused to my SSD while installing it.

Based on what saw on it, the game looked like the MMO version of shovelware. Not really surprised.

I am Jack's utter lack of shock or surprise.

Sucks for those that worked on or had found a home in the game (which given how quickly this thing is closing down is likely a very, very small number), but it was pretty obvious it wouldn't last : /

I really detest this trend of 'disposable games' brought about by online gaming.

@wjowski  It wasn't so much brought about by online gaming as it was brought about by Valve (via Steam Greenlight and Steam Early Access), and crowdfunding.

@wjowski Hardly a trend. Hundreds of disposable free to play games come out of China/Korea every year. They don't last long because they're low-quality shovelware.

I'd forgot this game even existed. Didn't even realize it had launched.


I checked it out when Massively first covered it, realized its science-fantasy-esque vibe just wasn't to my taste.


Still, a bad turn for those who cared, I know. Condolences all.

"But wait, isn't that the game that had a few articles here on MOP and was underway?"

"Oh, already launched. And DOA."

Not sure why anyone thought that a game that failed four years ago would work now.

Sticks in my memory because I didn't even make it past the intro cinematic.

Less than six months from early access to sunset.  Is that a new record?

@Celestial Sadly, not even close. :( Original APB was like... a month? Then there's stuff like Infinite Crisis...

The concept was promising but implementation was bad. Looking at gameplay videos convinced me not to install.

Game that I've never heard of closing announcement #603.


Commiserations, however, to those running or playing the game.
