Default Mech...Warrior...FIVE! (Trailer)

They're doing a reboot of the series, jacking it back to 3015, pre-clans, during the third successor wars, just like the very first (1989) video game in the series, and it looks fucking INTENSE

ANd best of all, they got the original mechs back! I almost had to change my pants after seeing this...

I played MechWarrior three a few times and really liked it. Hope they come out with a demo for PC or a console version soon. This looks like a good game and I am definitely looking forward to this.

That which doesn't kill me has made a tactical mistake.

The clan fans will be disappointed...but I was born and raised on Battletech, and I'm Inner Sphere to the core (Steiner-Davion, FedCom for the win!), so I'm psyched as shit. I'm sure they'll introduce the clanners in the next game.

Shit, man, I still have all my battletech books and minis AND the original 1989 PC game (on a half dozen 5.5" floppies, with manual, maps and the original ox, everything).

It's set too early for them to keep the original character and chalice-quest plot (the original game started in 3029 if I recall), but I hope they bring back some of the original roster of pilots. Mmmmm... D. Sajak ("The 'D' stands for Desire...")

To be honest, though, they could get away with setting this in the same timeframe. It looks from the trailer like some form of escalating event. Sat-comms knocked out, mechs popping up from nowhere...maybe I'm reading too much into it, but there's nothing stopping them from actually branching out over a very wide timeframe here.

Also, MechWarrior 4 and all the expansions are being released free for download! so I hope to see some of you gits online piloting Madcats with me!

While some people are kind of iffy about Pirhana being involved, let's face it. Smith and Tinker are also involved, and they're the company who hold the rights now to MW games, along with being comprised of ex-FASA employees, so I'm sure they'll keep Pirhana reigned in.
Now...let's just hope they don't arcade/console it up. I want my in-depth sim, dammit!

FOR THE INNER SPHERE!

Read more about the freeware mw4 here http://www.mektek.net/forums/index.p...pic=138700&hl=
Im not a fan of mekteks balance choices for mw4 mods in multiplay, but it will be cool to play BK/Vengeance missions again

Well, the trailer says 3015, which puts it towards the end of the Third Successor War. The Inner Sphere didn't start getting reports of mysterious invading mechs until August of 3049, and in March of 3050 the invasion proper began.

They still have the Fourth Successor War, The war of 3039, and a couple other scuffles before the clan start sniffing around our borders.

Now THAT's awesome.
Though madcats can suck it I'll take a MAD-5D Marauder and kick your ass with it, undertonned
I REALLY hope they put Marauders in the new game...

Yeah. i was just getting at the fact that there's nothing stopping them from having the trailer and the opening part of the game being just a small part.

I'll stop having wishful thinking though. =/

And if you're going to play with Marauders, then I'll strap nothing but light lasers, explosives, jumpjets and speed enhancements to a Raven, jump into a fight between you and other mechs, self destruct and come out with a positive kill/death ratio!

People used to hate me online.

When faced with a formidable and maneuverable heavy like the Marauder, Suicide is indeed the only option.
