MechWarrior Online: New Trailer Showcases Game Play

    There is no "out of cockpit" character for players. Only a mech. Which puts it on par with EVE when it first came out. 

    From watching the various videos now out, it looks like they've gone away from the idea of maybe having you start as a pilot of a small mech and upgrade yourself up to Assault at a higher level. Instead, each of the Four Classes - light, medium, heavy and assault - function somewhat like their own version of the Holy Trinity.

    So each of the classes is an essential member of any squad, with maybe the medium being the most common "workhorse" in a team. As you progress you upgrade whatever class of mech you're specialising in and maybe the skills that relate to it.  Of course, now I"m starting to get into speculation. 

    I'd like it to be a bit more. With some exploration elements and some Out of Mech adventure (finding Star League Caches, policing mercenary bandits, doing intrigue and hey, who is this Kerensky chick?) but that can come later, perhaps....

    As far as i see it, it will all be about gathering Cbills.

    As long as you gather cash, you can slowly get different mechs and upgrade them for different roles.

    And as time progresses (As the game starts in 3049 just before the clan invasions) Clan tech will eventually be made available which can be used to further upgrade designs and play with layouts of the mecht.

    Ofcourse, the Cbills will be neccesary to keep upgrading.

    As far as we now know... attack enemy bases to take them over and expand territory while defending your own to keep it from happening to your own faction etc.

    I, for one, can't wait to see what this game will include and how Piranha will deliver content.


    Sounds like PlanetSide-style gameplay

    This is looking awesome.. we have needed an updated version of the mechwarrior games for a long time...

    The Crysis mod living legends was really good and hopefully this will be even better.


    Yeah tis a lobby based game but i got no issues with that, i guess its going to play along similar lines to world of tanks. You start off with smaller mechs and build your way up to the top tier mech..


    Cant wait :)

    It looks good. I remember hubby playing mechwarriors at Dave and Busters in the big pods every time we'd go. He and his friends have  been waiting on this for years, hoping they'd make it.
