MechWarrior Online Trailer

This trailer from MechWarrior Online offers a "River City Reveal" from Piranha's upcoming mech combat game, which will be shown off this week at PAX Prime. Word is: "Nestled within a coastal valley, River City, ravaged by war, is the first urban setting map for MechWarrior Online. From stealth scouting to long range support and right down to all out brawling, players will find areas in River City that suit their needs. The river itself, spanned by two bridges, divides the city into two opposing sides. A fortified citadel dominates the centre of the city and players will fight for control of two key sites: a space port high on a plateau and a crucial industrial port facility on the ocean shoreline. Surrounding the city are hillsides that are still in conflict and the odd airstrike and artillery barrage can still be seen off in the distance. Pools of fire and rubble throughout the city drive home the point that the pristine condition of the city is now just a remnant memory of the past."

Exactly, how dare they ruin my hobby? ^^

More importantly though, I care for Mech Warrior, and it ain't Mech Warrior with no campaign or point. Battle Tech, to take it further, is all about REASON, LIMITED RESOURCES, and character driven stories. Not about Deathmatch. This is the fast-food of battle-tech and it tastes like fast food tastes.

Technically, Battletech began as a board game, so MWO being multiplayer-only doesn't make it any less faithful to the series.

And how does adding bots and coop AI skirmish (at the very least) cost any additional money?

It costs a lot of money, actually. AI programmers don't come cheap and adding AI-driven characters to multiplayer makes the networking more complicated too. Then you add the additional testing and polish required and you end up with quite a few new expenses.

That's not to say I wouldn't want bots as a feature. However, it's silly to claim that adding them doesn't cost anything.
