Crytek Officially Announces Support for MechWarrior: Living Legends

Alexander Marschall, Crytek's community manager, announces Crytek's official support for MechWarrior: Living Legends:

"Today we proudly announce the fourth and last chosen Crysis pre-SDK modification. It is called MechWarrior: Living Legends and will get supported by Crytek during its development."

MechWarrior: Living Legends is a total conversion modification for Crysis and a mix between a FPS and a simulation. Players will be able to pilot BattleMechs, battlesuits, hovercrafts, tanks, VTOLs (Vertical Take-Off and Landing Aircrafts) and other vehicles as warriors from either "The Clans" or "The Inner Sphere" in multiplayer missions. (MechWarrior: Living Legends, PC)

holy crap! MechWarrior. this was THE game to play like a decade ago... (or maybe a little more recent.)

and since Crytek is making it, i have no doubt that 1. it'll look AMAZING, 2. it'll play well and 3. it'll be big budget and high profile.

i forgot which version i used to love mechwarrior 4 or mechwarrior 2..

Microsoft owns the MechWarrior IP
so this will end up with either Microsoft putting a stop to it, or Microsoft wants a piece of it.

Crytek is not actually developing the game although they will be offering full support for the group responsible for it. If they do this right...my life will be forfeit once more. heh.

Microsoft washed their hands with the last version of mech. It is still alive only because of the community and the efforts of modders like Mektek and such. MS may not put up a stink seeing how this would be another game to promote DX10.

I agree with you. MS would think of this as promoting the Vista platform.

Mechwarrior rules. I still play MW2 from time to time :D one of my all time fave games (until this comes out and I spend £gazillion to upgrade to play at full everything).

Damn almost have enough for my new card and I'll be all over this and Crysis.
My experiance so far with Vista is that it's will be like all other Windows. In about a year or two when all the kinks are out it will be like all other Windows, on everyones computer. Hold off for a bit till there is more support, XP will do fine till then.
wageslave  +   2455d ago
Your right. The kinks are mostly already worked out. Vista shipped more "end-user" ready than any previous Windows. (I have a CS degree, and work in IT for a fortune 5 firm, we pulled our Vista desktop launch *ahead* after we had so much positive reaction from the pilot projects).

It will take time -- of COURSE. People arent going to throw out their perfectly good PC just because they want Vista. And, not everyone is going to go buy a retail copy of Vista.

This is exactly the way transitions between major versions work for all software. It is totally, 100% normal and expected.

That said, I've been running Ultimate since Day 1, I've never ran a better OS in my life. And, I've run them all.
