Overview

MechWarrior Online is an online action shooter game from Piranha Games that puts you in the pilot seat of a powerful BattleMech. MechWarrior Online is as an exciting MMOFPS reboot of the MechWarrior series, taking place in an alternate timeline of raging interstellar conflict between six factions known as the Inner Sphere Houses. Players will get to choose which faction to fight for and will take control of a BattleMech robot, equip it with weapons and armor upgrades, and customize its appearance.

Combat in MechWarrior Online is less about going in all guns blazing and more about tactical shooting and evasion. Players join one of two competing teams in a large constrained arena with the goal of annihilating the ranks of the other, or capturing the rival base. This was intentionally made to reflect the sturdiness of BattleMechs, which would take more than few bullet hits to take down. Because of the longer engagements, shooter fans will need to shake off their headshot mentality. Sure, having a sure-shot aim is still an asset due to the mandatory first-person camera perspective. But the fact that you can outlive a full-frontal assault means you can hide behind an environmental cover, or leap to safer ground, or run back for team support are the better options. This makes matches more of a mind game than most mmofps games. Developers call this role warfare, or the ability to provide players with a variety of playstyles. Not everyone wants to be a crazy commando. Some want to act sneaky as a scout or lead the squad as a commander. MechWarrior Online gives them that flexibility through player choices in how to train their MechWarrior pilot and how to fit out their BattleMech.

MechWarrior Online takes the MMO shooter experience to visual nirvana by using the CryENGINE 3, a game engine developed by Crytek and is used in games like Crysis 2 and Ryse. This game engine is acclaimed for its impressive lighting, 3D animation, and environment rendering capabilities. It also powers up the game’s dynamic user interface, showing all you need to know about the current target and the immediate environment. The status of your weapons and armor, the movement of allies and foes, and other field data you need to make quick fight-or-flight decisions are all laid out in crisp detail. While mainly offered as a free to play exclusive to the PC, MechWarrior Online offers a paid premium account status that comes with exclusive game content among other perks. Mechs and items are sold for real-world cash, as well, through the game’s online store.
