MechWarrior 5: Clans Announced

Piranha Games announces MechWarrior 5: Clans, a new standalone MechWarrior game coming to PC and consoles next year. This promises a different approach to the series: "MechWarrior 5: Clans, while retaining the MechWarrior 5 designation, represents a transformative step forward in the MechWarrior 5 franchise. MechWarrior 5: Clans linear campaign will be an evolution of gameplay and storytelling in the MechWarrior series, experienced from the perspective of Clan Smoke Jaguar in the pivotal conflict known as the Clan Invasion starting in the year 3050." A short Teaser Trailer teases the news with a brief cinematic, a logo, and some flames, concluding with logos for Steam, the Epic Games Store, PlayStation, and Xbox. Here's more:
MechWarrior 5: Clans features a captivating and intricately crafted story that immerses players in the conflicts of the Clan Invasion. The campaign takes place across a variety of planets through stunning, meticulously designed biomes where immersive realism is baked into every detail. Hand crafted maps and missions deliver engaging combat, both complex and chaotic, demanding thoughtful, strategic play. Tactical options abound with an all new cast of customizable Clan Mechs boasting sleek and powerful Clan technologies. MechWarrior 5: Clans explores a pivotal time in the MechWarrior universe brought on by the Clan Invasion and incredible technological advances in Mech warfare, reflected within the Clan Invasion time period.

MechWarrior 5: Clans follows the elite five-mech squad, a “Star”, from the Smoke Jaguar Clan. The promising cast of rookie pilots complete their training on their home world of Huntress just ahead of the Clan Invasion, a critical turning point in the BattleTech lore. The game immerses players in both the personal and military conflicts of the Clan Invasion . As you progress through the campaign, you'll experience a deeply engaging narrative that unfolds with well-developed characters and moral dilemmas that keep you on the edge of your seat.

Top Tier Simulation-style MechWarrior combat returns in MechWarrior 5: Clans. Clan Mechs and Clan Tech bring a whole new dynamic to MechWarrior 5: Clans. New progression and customization systems encourage pilots to alter Mech loadouts with expansive customization through an updated Mech lab, Hardpoint, and Omnipod system. Adaptability to the scenario at hand is key to a strategic victory.

I loved MW2 when it was first released, enjoyed MW3 and 4, and am a fan of HBS' Battlech game (with mods), but couldn't stand MW5: Dreadful mission design, horrible writing and acting, sound design that totally failed to capture the scale of the conflict, and underwhelming mech customisation options. I have no faith in this company's ability to create a good linear campaign.

This ^^^ sums it up perfectly. MW5 is a sole-less, lego block made, repetitive arena shooter; mech sim it is NOT.

This made me laugh. How do you make a "sim" of giant stompy battlemechs? 😜

I get it - you don't like it. That's okay - doesn't lessen my enjoyment of it.
