Mechwarrior 720p HD-trailer

This is not one of those little crummy trailers floating about the web the past few days, showing a Mech's foot in a bombed out city. No, this is the first actual trailer showing the actual Mech walking and shooting and thrashing about in that city.

3 minutes of one on one combat! The HD rebirth of Mechwarrior for the PC and Xbox 360.

That's how you make a Mech game. Nothing like the 1st Gundam game on PS3! you guys remember that game? it was the worst gundam game I've ever played. Faulty controls bad Frame-rate.

more games for MS!!!

PirateThom2542d ago

Want me to bring up the development history of guerilla games?

Not to mention it's being co-developed by smith and tinker who is founded by the gentlemen that created the battleTech series and the original founder of fasa studios.

Also, the battleTech series (MechWarrior and MechAssault) as well as crimson skies and shadowrun are all owned by Microsoft.

@Whut

I wasn't talking about platforms, I was more talking about the fact their games are crap.

@Xi

People did bring up Guerilla's previous games, you can only go on a developer's past.

Simon_Brezhnev2542d ago

but what does PS3 have to do with this

Xi2542d ago (Edited 2542d ago )

Smith and Tinker was founded by Jordon Wiesman and they are directly working in tandem with Pirahna games to develop MechWarrior. The team behind Smith and Tinker are well known for the creation of the original Fasa Studios who's work includes MechWarrior 1-4, BattleTech, Crimson Skies & high road to revenge, the original shadow-run, MechAssault, as well as an assortment of pen and paper RPG's that are extremely popular to this date. Almost all of the games that Jordon Wiesman has worked on have become global successes, and have been both critially and publically praised. At Microsoft, Jordan was the Creative Director for the entire entertainment business unit which included all PC and Xbox titles. While there, he conceived of the pioneering transmedia non-linear storytelling experience for Steven Spielberg's movie A.I. Artificial Intelligence, which has spawned a whole new genre of interactive entertainment called Alternate Reality Games. He has won more than one hundred awards, including election to the game designer's hall of fame by the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts & Design. He's also written books that have gone on to become NYT best sellers.

Pirahna games, while being over 9 years old, also rececently released the Transformers game, probably giving them more experience into developing large robot/mech game then anyone else. it's a perfect fit for them to develop mechwarrior as they can already use much of what they learned to help develop a better more polished experience. Unlike movie games that require a strict deadline, they will be given a lot more advantages to developing mechwarrior, a more lienent deadline, a thriving community for input, and they wont have to follow the plot of an aweful movie. Along with working with Smith and Tinker, I have no doubt in the quality of the game.

And like I said, it's not the first time a developer of 'bad' games delivers something amazing. Not everyone can be a bungie, blizzard or valve when it come to quality.

Woow, exclusive for Microsoft plataforms!

Thugbot1872541d ago

I loved the MechWarrior Games, only thing better was the Heavy Gear.

Coffin872541d ago

Woow it's sooo freakin good that i have a ps3 + a gaming pc.. i have played gears, lost planet, mass effect, halo ...

PERFECT combination!!!

Leathersoup2541d ago

There's no saying this is going to be a Microsoft exclusive. Fasa Studios who were in charge of making games based off of the old Fasa licenses was shut down. Microsoft is licensing out these properties for game development. As such Smith & Tinker could very well be making the game as a multi-platform game. There's no saying it would be a Windows / Xbox only game.

If you're want to make money, hit as many platforms as you can if it's feasible.

dachiefsman2541d ago

I have a pc, ps3, psp, xbox 360, wii......C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER!!!!!

green2541d ago

Watch the trailer and then read the disclaimer at the end because you will see that Microsoft has a lot of the MechWarrior assets even if they no longer own the IP.

how about approving the friggin post before starting to comment, lol

SumRandomDude2542d ago

I only played the 3rd one but I'm a big fan of the MechCommander series. I still have Mechcommander 1 and 2. BTW, I don't know if anyone could play a real Mech Warrior game on a console. No doubt it would look awesome but the controls could stop it from being great. Heck, I had trouble commanding a mech with mouse and keyboard.

Keith Olbermann2542d ago

I hope it all plays this good. If so, day one purchase on pc.

pippoppow2542d ago

Just hope they keep it similar to 3&4. Would be nice if they added partial building damage. Favorite mechs were Shadowcat and Uziel. Can't wait to dust off my flight sticks and give this game a go.

sak5002542d ago (Edited 2542d ago )

Reported duplicate.

2 days old news. Same fake CGI footage and the game will turn out to be like Armored core 4 .

MiloGarret2542d ago

it clearly says "in game footage", look at the bottom left corner. Looks pretty much like UE3 textures too... Idk, just looking forward to another mechwarrior game.

socomnick2542d ago

Ok look in the bottom right of the screen, whats that say ?

Yea it says, In game footage. This is gameplay brah.

MiloGarret2541d ago

yes, bottom right corner... jeebus that was retarded, lol.

cherrypie2536d ago (Edited 2536d ago )

Awwww. Someone angry that his PS3 wont be getting this Mech game? It's pretty obvious this is the best-looking Mech game this gen.

And, as mentioned above, with Jordon Wiesman (see 1.6) the game is going to **PLAY** great too.

You could always play this: http://www.metacritic.com/g...
