MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Video

A new video from IGN is taken from MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries to show off the fog of war as well as the water of war with a look at water and fog effects as well as the destructible environments Piranha Games' upcoming mech combat game (thanks Neutronbeam). Here's a description of the game that came along with the recent news that the game is now expected on September 10th:
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will allow pilots to build, manage and guide their own mercenary unit through a multi-year campaign during the sprawling Third and Fourth Succession Wars. Whether braving missions alone, alongside AI-controlled pilots, or with the help of up to three friends via co-op play, players will face complicated situations with no perfect solution as they choose which contracts to accept, where in the galaxy to direct their attention, and how to balance repairs or upgrades with maintaining their unit’s precious resources.

Are their ingame sounds that bad they have to hide them with shitty music?
This is STILL a work in progress, nothing is final. Release date is end of next year. Until then, please refrain from speculating

Hopefully this take on the franchise is better than their last attempt, especially when it comes to weapons and mech customisation (or lack thereof in MWO).

The last Mechwarrior game to have a real physics simulation engine, was Mechwarrior 2: Mercenaries. This one looks like another console arcade game.

^ this ... though I will certainly wait for a GOTY and a sale on this one. However, what they have shown so far has looked VERY decent. Please don't suck indeed!

+1. But the formula is tried and true, so it's hard to see how they could mess it up. They would have to do something stupid like not allow key rebinding or not have mech customization.

Anyone hear if they're supporting VR out of the gate?

Never underestimate the ability of people to fuck up something that is damn near unfuckable...

I'll probably buy it, despite the conjecture. I've just got too much history with MechWarrior to not give her a new try.

If it wasn't Piranha games, I would be more excited. But a Mechwarrior single player game is better than no Mechwarrior single player game. At least this keeps the franchise alive.
