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.

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..

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.
