Being an avid fan of the battlemech universe, this installment to the mechwarrior franchise will sure to get any battletech fans jumping out for joy. The latest trailer released by Piranha Games shows the in game-graphics bringing out all the details of the battlemechs, far better than what I recall having entered the series in Mechwarrior 2, where there are like only 3 colours you can see on screen- the sky, ground and your HUD frame.
The trailer shows many interesting aspects of the game and HUD, particularly the all irritating cockpit voice. The core failure was spectacular too, and the cockpit features free-look just like in most modern cockpit simulators now. Not sure whether the HUD displays are live or just animated textures though. There are countless ways to destroy enemy mechs, so as how you as a pilot can to- I will be damned so see how an overheat meltdown gets to as well, if only there is the possibility to spam large lasers with your coolant flush depleted.
Nothing shown on my favorite mechs, the Timberwolf aka Madcat and the Vulture, but whatever your favorite is, I guess this new game will sure allow you to experience it the best any game can offer to date.
