New Mechwarrior Game Announced

Information from: IGN Mechwarrior Revealed

The Premise: “This new MechWarrior (game) is set on the planet Deshler in the year 3015, and places players in the role of Adrian Khol, a wayward nobleman (presumably from the Federated Suns as it is set during the rise of Hanse Davion) 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.”

It is only a proof of concept trailer but man does it look GOOD!

According to IGN’s interviews with Jordan Weisman,(co-founder of Smith and Tinker and co-founder of FASA, the company that created the BattleTech/Mechwarrior universe and Russ Bullock, president of Pirhana Games (the Computer Game developer):

“The game is being developed for the PC and the Xbox 360 (No PS3??? BOOOOO), though there isn’t any idea of a release date yet, since the game is still in the middle of development and the companies are still talking to publishers.”

BattleTech - The Crescent Hawks Revenge_4

I still remember wasting hours on my Commodore 64 playing Crescent Hawk’s Revenge. And still more countless hours on my PC playing the Mechwarrior and Mech Commander Games as well. I’ve always wanted to get into Battletech desktop miniature gaming too.

There’s just something so cool about 50-100 ton metal juggernauts loaded with missiles and particle projection cannons. And don’t get started about Clantech and the mechs of Kerresnky’s progeny, MADCAT!!!!!

Anyway here are a few game box covers to bring back those fond childhood memories, while we wait for the new Mechwarrior game to arrive ;p
