MechWarrior: Living Legends sees modular weaponry, new screenshots

If you miss titles like MechWarrior and the latest F.E.A.R. game barely touched the sides, chances are you'll be rather interested in an upcoming total-conversion mod for Crysis. It's called MechWarrior: Living Legends (MWLL) and the developer is making it into one very impressive BattleMech fest. Clearly putting a lot of working into making it a fully-fledged mech title, the team goes so far as to call it a simulator.

"[We're] working hard on creating a MechWarrior experience that long-time fans of the franchise as well as curious newcomers will be able to have a great time with," says mod developer Wandering Samurai Studios. "MWLL is, at its very core, a mix between first-person shooter and simulation," it says, stunningly enough proceeding to label it as a massively multiplayer experience. "This will be achieved through the use of a mixed arms massively multiplayer gaming experience where the player takes part in a battle using a variety of vehicles and weapons". (Dev, MechWarrior: Living Legends, PC)

I met the guy behind this mod, hes an american living in germany because he works for crytek now. He says there still workn on this, but personally i dont htink its ever coming out. Too many issues to run into like vehicle netcode.

I hope you are wrong...
Cause this would be one of the first PC games I would buy in a very long time. I have been hoping someone would come along and bring back the MechWarrior games. This has been the closest thing to it.

New mechwarrior game would be great.
They need to make it like the intro to part 3. Would be nice if the buildings would take damage and fall to it's side to block a road. Maybe blow a whole in the side of a building to shoot through the hole and use the building as cover. Maybe also have a secondary mode or breakaway module added to the mechs. Was nice playing mechwarrior on the PC with flight sticks. Miss Mechwarrior games.

Hope they can get this to market...
It would feel good to jump into a thor again and take down some missle boats spec ops style.
