MechWarrior Online Using CryENGINE 3

The MechWarrior Online Website announces this upcoming multiplayer BattleTech game will use Crytek's CryENGINE 3. "Working with CryENGINE is a true pleasure," said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. "It is definitely the best choice for us: Both the character animation pipeline with the procedurally and physics based animations and the destruction system fit our goals perfectly and allow us to develop a truly unique AAA experience based on the award-winning BattleTech Universe." The announcement also outlines the "four distinct pillars" of the game:

  • Mech Warfare, the embodiment of Mech to Mech combat
  • Role Warfare, the ability for player’s to customize their experience to suit their own style of gameplay
  • Community Warfare, the ability to let the players take part in epic combat for territorial control
  • Information Warfare, an element on the battlefield that incorporates information technology to help control the fight
