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."

I agree with the comments about the quality of the voice over. However.. i think the games graphics and game play look pretty nice.

Its attitudes like the one displayed below that are helping to ruin the game industry, destroy game studio independence, and drive the mega publisher funded glitter boxes of empty prettiness.

For a community funded game its turning out really nice and gets the job done.

This game still looks pretty good to me.. and the name here reminds me of one of my favorite NES games, River City Ransom.

It's gong to fun imagining that NES game took place in an "ancient" version of this city while stomping through with mechs ^_^

Ya that guy sounds like a douche, and this trailer makes the game look less than special. Glad I'm not a founder! lol

Next time they should hire a professional voice over guy instead of using Bob from the mail room!

Watch this trailer with the sound off! You've been warned!
