MechWarrior Reboot News Nears

Blue's News writes:

Fresh off our work with Luxoflux-Activision on Transformers2 for Xbox 360 and PS3, Piranha Games is partnering with Jordan Weismann, creator of the BattleTech universe, to develop the all new MechWarrior game. Set in the traditional BattleTech world, the new game is paying homage to 25 years of history and fan dedication with a complete reboot of the MechWarrior series.

The new MechWarrior is set on the planet Deshler in the year 3015 and places you in the role of Adrian Khol, a wayward nobleman who prefers partying and shirking responsibility over his training and studies. However, when House Kurita launches a massive invasion to conquer Deshler, resulting in the death of his entire family, Khol discovers a purpose to fight for.

Gamers will pilot a deadly BattleMech and use information warfare to dominate a dynamic-destructive urban battlefield. The game features include classic and new mechs from the BattleTech universe with persistent character development and plans for a single player campaign, as well as, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay.

Although I am a battletech/mechwarrior fan, I do not know what to think about this game due to them going back to the 3025/basic tech.

it's a long time since they dazzled us with the teaser, i'm glad this project is still on.

I guessed they are feeling the heat since everyone's talking about Hawken all the time.

(Soon we'll be seeing two games about giant machines tearing each apart built using the Unreal 3 engine).

I know they've building the new Mech Warrior with the Unreal 3 engine. I'm hoping that they would at least try to beg Epic give them access to the DX 11 capable version use for the Samaritan demo.

IF they are still using UE3 then the game is only going to be 5 years graphically behind when it releases.

Please let this be good
