Piranha Games has today released a brand new gameplay trailer for MechWarrior Online that features some very heated combat. While only 30 seconds long, it gives a glimpse at what to expect from this action packed title.
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 customise 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.
Also revealed today is the brand new Dragon Mech, which is well equipped for battle with its laser weapons and speedy travel.
At 60 tons and boasting such a massive engine, the Dragon travels 86.4 km/h. It is clearly designed to let the pilot choose when and where combat happens (and likely how it ends). With the indirect-fire capabilities of the Telos DecaCluster LRM-10 combined with the range of the Imperator-A Autocannon/5, the Dragon will be able to bring down most foes before they even get into the range of its two Victory 23R Medium Lasers.
