Showcasing in-game footage from MechWarrior Online, this hot new video is full of lasers (pew-pew!), rockets, GIANT ROBOTS and some sweet, sweet metal carnage. In this video you’ll see an Atlas, a Jenner and a Hunchback battling it out in a remote wilderness location, one of many environments that will launch with MechWarrior Online later this summer.
Set in the year 3049 during the early stages of a massive interstellar war, MechWarrior Online puts you in command of the most powerful war machine to ever walk the field of battle, the mighty BattleMech™. Command your Mech™ and customize it to suit your battlefield role; upgrade systems, replace weapons, and tweak armor with endless options.
MechWarrior Online lets players command at will: go head-to-head online alone or with friends in high-octane Conquest and VS modes. Band together and form your own Mercenary Corp, invite friends and battle other player-made Merc Corps for prestige and power. Pledge your allegiance to one of the five great houses and fight for control of precious Inner Sphere planets.
Looks good in the visuals. The lasers are very unsatisfying and do not look good. Same can be said for the other ordinance I saw in the trailer. Finally I hope that awful music will not be anywhere in the final game. Eeek!
There's a hunchback in that screen cap so you know what I'll be piloting. At the first gencon I went to they a set of 6 pods from Chicago on loan for the event. You got to play until you died, which lasted about 60 to 90 seconds. After 3 minutes and 9 kills they had to kick me off and gave me a free patch.
