Developers Stompy Bot and MekTek Studios have let it be known that they are using Epic Games' new Unreal Engine 4 tech to power their revival of the popular mech-combat franchise, and they've sent along a new trailer to "give fans a taste of what to expect".
The second Heavy Gear Assault trailer from Stompy, features a commercial from the fictitious arms contractor Paxton Arms. The trailer was done entirely with UE4 and features actual in-game footage.

“We are privileged to be amongst the first titles to use Epic Game’s Unreal Engine 4,” Vince McMullin, President, MekTek Studios said. “We will be able to bring all the gritty realities of sporting combat in the Heavy Gear Universe to life with never before imagined high-end visuals. Heavy Gear Assault will truly be the first next-generation mecha game”.

Stompy and Mektek selected UE4 because of the ease of content creation and programming the engine enables.

“We’re pleased to provide the world-class tools that are being used to breathe new life into the Heavy Gear game universe,” said Joe Kreiner, Epic’s head of North American licensing. “Unreal Engine 4 is the ideal technical foundation to use for making PC games, particularly with its rendering capabilities and speed of development.”
The hopeful creators also claim to have reached reached over US$100,000 of the project's lofty $900K goal, however the tally is not independently verifiable as pledges are being managed by their own website as opposed to the usual Kickstarter path.

Check out the "Paxton Arms" trailer below for some Unreal Engine 4 shininess.
