Sega Teases Annual ‘Make War Not Love 5’


Valentine’s Day is coming up, and that means Sega’s yearly anti-Valentine’s celebration is about to begin. Make War Not Love 5 was teased today after the competition’s official website asked visitors to sign up their email address for information on “how to participate in MWNL5” and “redeem daily prizes.”

The page, which remains relatively sparse, also features logos for Relic Entertainment, Creative Assembly, and Amplitude. Little other information is given, even after verifying an email address to follow the event. But between the ad’s “coming soon” message and previous Make War Not Love competitions, it’s safe to say this year’s celebration will be a big one.

Here’s how Make War Not Love has worked recently. Players hop online and join a faction based around their favorite community. Last year, that was Dawn of War II, Total War: Warhammer, Endless Legend, and Company of Heroes II. From there, gamers compete with each other in events ranging from duels and streams to time spent in online matches. At the end, the winning team receives a free DLC pack for their game.

Alongside the event’s festivities, there’s also discounts on each franchise and series focused on during the discount, with cuts previously available for everything from Endless Legend to Company of Heroes. For now, it’s unclear what those discounts will look like for 2018. But seeing how Amplitude, Relic Entertainment, and Creative Assembly are all involved–and each company released a new game in the past year, including Endless Space 2, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, respectively–then some post-holiday discounts may be on the way.
