MechWarrior 5 Gameplay Trailer Brings on the Battle Mechs

If there are any doubters left, MechWarrior 5 has a gameplay trailer out. Almost 3 minutes of footage gives you a glimpse of planet Deshler, part of the Draconis Combine, and the terrific Tolek city layout. There’s definitely some House Kurita action in there as well as a glimpse of one of my personal favorite battle mechs, the Jenner-D, in action. The Warhammer and the awesome Atlus-C are also in the MechWarrior 5 Gameplay Trailer.

I’ve always liked the Battle Tech series whether it’s FASA’s original pen and paper game or the MechWarrior PC series. It looks like 10 years is going to be worth the wait.

Ok, all I want to know now is…can we have a MMO!! PLEASE??! There is a huge universe available and incredible storylines and history to work with.

I do hope that it remains true to BattleTech. I still have my old battletech and battlespace books and models from when I was a teenager. I’d always hoped to visit that universe again some day.

I’ve played FPSs and simulators. Purity to old MechWarrior games isn’t so important to me as remembering where the game came from. Otherwise, why write a MechWarrior game at all? Why not just another Wolfenstein clone?

Are there any old mechwarriors left that feel this way?

Oh, and I love the trailer. I sincerely hope the game really looks like this in the end.

My First Video Game Was Mechwarrior 2 Titanium On My Brother Windows 95 Computer When I Was 5, Mechwarrior 3 When I Was 11, And I Just Got My Hands On A Copy Of Mechwarrior 4 Vengeance With Both Expansion Packs, And Am Psyching Out Over This New Game!
