MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Launch Trailer

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is set to rumble out on December 10th, and developer Piranha Games paves the way with a new Launch Trailer for the BattleTech sequel. Here's word on the trailer and their release plans:
Showcasing incredible carnage, fiery rockets and trademark giant 'Mech on 'Mech destructive combat, fans just have five short days to wait until they can strap in to the cockpit and get locked on targets. Fans looking to preorder can still do so at www.mw5mercs.com.

Featuring expansively destructible environments, pilots can tear through structures while swatting helicopters out of the sky and reducing rival pilots’ rides to scrap. Strategize in the moments in-between battles in the Mech Bay with mission recovery and choose your pre-deployment loadouts to maximize your chances of glory on the battlefield. Whether you play solo or team up via co-op with friends, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is all about risk, reward, and consequence.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries marks the return of the series’ mission-focused campaign structure, allowing pilots to call the shots while leading either AI-controlled allies or up to three friends through optional co-op into dangerous contracts. Unit leaders will decide which risky missions to accept, where their priorities lie across the Inner Sphere’s volatile conflict zones, as well as how to best utilize the resources earned from their dances with death.

I honestly don't care about which platform it's on, as I just use GOG Galaxy to deal with that. However, this just looks crap. I used to play MW2 and MW3 back in the day and enjoy them but this holds no interest for me.

When did this site turn into a forum for whiny little cunts? I mean this thread and the whole so-called EGS "fiasco" is making me believe that people have lost it, completely.

Don't get me wrong, I got nothing against a good fight, boycott or whatever...when it's WARRANTED. But we're in 2019, 2020 almost. There are no brick and mortar stores anymore, there are no middle men anymore. Your PCs (even potato ones) can handle more than one online client. As for exclusivity it's not a goddamn conspiracy, it's cash in hand to the developer without selling one single copy of a game, and that's all it is. If you wan't to boycott a game by all means do so but unless the game is utter shite, don't pretend it's anything other than satisfying an irrational response to satisfy your own irrational ego.

I've been playing the "beta" and it definitely feels like it's not quite ready. For instance, the paper doll that shows the damage to various parts of your mech is reversed. Left arm on the right side, etc. Here's hoping that they get some of the sloppiness cleaned up before the official release.

Regardless, the coop battles have been super fun so far. I'm happy I got it

The paper dolls are correct in that video that jdreyer posted. He loses his right arm towards the end of the video and goes to third person camera and confirms.

Yes but only on the paper doll that shows rear armor. On the leftmost doll, which shows the front armor, it's the left arm that goes away

R FRONT L and L REAR R on the damage to show which way you're looking at it.

Putting the right side on the left is just bad interface design

Unless it's mirrored? Seriously, someone needs to up your OCD meds.

There are two paper dolls there... one showing the front and one showing the back... Neither have the arms wrong.
There is no "right side on the left".

Watched several gameplay battle videos. Didn't excite. Is there an interesting salvage based progression system?

Looking good. I'll grab an Epic copy at launch just to piss off the Steam elitists and then I'll buy the Steam GOTY in a couple of years when I actually want to play it. Bring this shit on!

Gameplay vid from a week ago, if you're interested.

Thanks for the link. Companion AI looks pretty bad, to be honest, but other than that it seems... I dunno, okay, I guess? The guy keeps saying the game is so gorgeous, but it seems pretty mediocre.

Maybe this isn't my genre anymore.


There's a part where the drop ship drops off a few more mechs after they destroy the base and one of the smaller faster mechs - enemy AI - actually ran around behind them and started attacking them from behind. I thought was pretty impressive. I'll deffo keep it in mind for next year.

Looks good, perfect game for x-mas 2020 when it's out of anti-competitive epic crap store hell.

Considering the reputation of this developer's history and with MWO, everyone but PC scabs should stay away from this game for at least a year and purchase it at not-my-Epic.

Best footage they've released so far.....but no cockpit views. Due to PGI's track record and the fact that it's EGS exclusive, I look forward to seeing what the state of the game is when it releases on Steam.

Yep, same here. Love MW, but not touching this until its on Steam.
