Ever since I completed Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries, I've been hopeful in my wait for a worthy successor to this great game. The memories of being Spectre, still stand out clearly in my mind. I remember alot of the missions and dialogue.
Then it happened. Some time during 2010, this trailer was published.
I've seen it countless times now and it still makes me marvel.
The game was supposed to be like the previous games; Singleplayer primarily with added multiplayer funtionality. That changed though.
Now it's 2012 and Piranha Games have released alot more information regarding this title. Some of the key points are:
Free To Play model
Multiple game modes, including Team Deathmatch
Upgradable and customizable Mechs
Cry Engine 3-based game
The game is scheduled for release this summer. Personally, I can hardly wait for my chance to wreck havok on the battlefield with huge guns and awesome robots. With this, I will leave you with a video released during the 2012 GDC. It's ingame footage.
