MechWarrior Online, the first game in the mech combat series for nearly 10 years, has just been announced for PC.
Mechwarrior Online is developed by Piranha Games and published by Infinite Games and will be a free-to-play team-based online game set to be released in the latter half of 2012. I already reserved my Pilot name so head on over their official website below to register!
Set in the year 3049, Mechwarrior Online has the player taking control of a Battle Mech during the early stages of a massive interstellar war. The action will play out in real time. You’ll either join or establish a Mercenary Corp, pledge allegiance to one of the game’s five opposing factions and then scrap it out for control of planets within the Inner Sphere.
Developer Piranha Games is promising plenty of gameplay options, including Conquest and VS modes, along with the standard array of character customisation and upgrade systems.
