GDC 2012: New Trailer for MechWarrior Online

by Jason ChestnutMarch 13, 2012

Piranha Games released a sweet looking new trailer for their forthcoming free-to-play shooter MechWarrior Online at this year’s Game Developers Conference. We get to see three of the “BattleMech” types, an Atlas, a Jenner and a Hunchback battling it out in one of the many environments available to players for giant robot blasting mayhem.

 
Check out the new trailer!:

According to the official press release, MechWarrior Online will give players “endless options” for customizing their BattleMech. They can upgrade systems, replace weapons, and tweak their armor. As seen in the trailer, the game is going to be focused on first person action where players will go head-to-head in Conquest and Versus modes. Taking place in a distant future threatened by interstellar war, you can band together with other players to form your own Mercenary Corporation, battle other Merc Corps and/or pledge your allegiance to one of the five great houses in a constant battle for control over the precious Inner Sphere planets.

Concept art from the official site showcasing the "war torn" look of the game.

MechWarrior Online is being developed by Piranha Games and is set to launch, as a free-to-play title for Windows PC later this summer. For more info on the game check ou the official site.

    I’m trying to play Mechwarrior 2: Mercenaries on DosBox. I mounted my CDROM drive to the D drive in DOSbox. My game is saved under the C drive, and when I try typing in C:MercsMercs, I am prompted with a message that says Error: Mechwarrior 2: Mercenaries CD cannot be found. I also tried typing in D:MercsMercs and that didn’t work either, I got the same error message. I’m not very familiar with DOSbox at all, I just followed some online instructions. Any idea on how I can make DOSbox find the CD? Help would be much appreciated.

    Does anyone know any good robot games that are able to be played single or multiplayer.

    Customizability of the robots is a must. I have fun thinking and planning the combonations.

    I will take realistic war machine types like mechwarrior. However mostly I’m looking for something like medabots.

    It has to be for playstation/ps2 or PC.

    Pre thanks for any suggestions.

    February 7, 2006 – Videogame giant Nintendo of America reiterated this morning that company president Satoru Iwata will deliver the anticipated keynote address at the 2006 Game Developers Conference, which begins March 20 in San Jose, California.

    GDC is a five-day show dedicated to game developers and software creation. The event will host more than 300 lectures focused on providing knowledge and tools for designers, programmers and artists working in the games industry.
    Although billed as an event strictly for studios, the conference has increasingly become a podium for big-name publishers to speak directly to developers. Microsoft used GDC to kick-off its Xbox platform several years ago and Mr. Iwata delivered the keynote in 2005, taking the opportunity to introduce software houses to Nintendo’s handheld vision.

    Nintendo president Satoru Iwata

    Iwata’s 2006 keynote is entitled “Disrupting Development” and will call upon developers to “take risks and mine the depths of their imaginations to create innovative games regardless of the size of teams or budgets.” Nintendo’s president will cite the company’s own DS handheld, the “brain-training” titles and the emerging Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection as sources of cost-saving innovation. Of far greater interest to console fans, though, is that Iwata will also speak on the role Nintendo videogame systems will play in the future market.

    Unconfirmed reports have suggested that Nintendo may use Iwata’s keynote address to reveal new information about the publisher’s forthcoming console, codenamed Revolution. IGN’s own sources have indicated that new details about the machine will be announced at the event, but that the Big N intends to hold most of the so-called major nuggets – price and release date structures included – for E3 2006, which begins this May in Los Angeles.

    “We are extremely honored to feature an experienced platform leader such as Satoru Iwata as a keynote speaker,” said Jamil Moledina, director, Game Developers Conference. “As Nintendo reinvents the scope of what games can be, it is ever more crucial to share their creative and market-growing philosophies with the other leaders of the game creation industry.”

    The GDC is the general dental council. I just want to know if it can be given this title.
    Thanks!

  • Myles

    What do you think of Nintendo’s announcement at the GDC 09?
    All they did was talk about the Nintendo DSI and not the Nintendo Wii console.
    Every one knows about motion plus

    I recently bought a Mechwarrior 2 cd after craving playing it for years. I’ve tried to look online through forums and all sorts of places on how exactly to get it to work on my computer with Windows xp running. I know it is possible…I just cant figure out quite how to get it running. I’ve already set the game to play in windows 95 compatibility mode but whenever the game ‘starts’, it instantly just closes after flashing a black screen. Can somebody please help? With the best details possible too, I seem to be computer challenged at this sort of thing.

    The fact that you could design the ships, and it had such an in depth tech tree, and had lots of ways to develop planets made it a very interesting game. My problem was that the user interface was so slow, and there was little automation so you are stuck micromanaging everything. In the end of the game turns could sometimes get to 20 minutes long just to instruct all the planets what to do.

    I like games like Birth of the Federation, Sins of a Solar Empire, Age of Empires II, Battlezone II, Baldur’s Gate Series, Mechwarrior series, Civilization series, Heroes of Might and Magic series, Mind Rover, Incredible Machine series…

    Do you have any suggestions for a good game I should try? I’m looking for something that also can be modded so it’s fun to play for a lot of years. It can be old or new, commercial or open source. I don’t care about graphics I just want a fun game with lots of features.

    I don’t like online games, and I don’t dirty games.
    I’ve also looked into Spring RTS and FreeOrion and they both have potential, they’re just far from finished yet.
    Galactic Civilization 2 looks interesting… has potential, I’ll get the demo.
    Also Space Empires IV looks interesting, can’t find much about it online though.

  • baldy eire

    I am so confused as to who I need to register with, what I have to pay, and the requirements of registering with the GCD ( if it is them ) I know to be a dental nurse you need just your GCSES but not sure what I need to register.
    Thanks.
