It does say "in game footage" but I'm guessing this is taken off the PC version?

Awesome. I hope they'll keep the simulation aspects of the originals.

Now, if only i could use it with my Steel Battallion controler :P

I love the cockpit view but the weapon impacts seem weak and the robot designs are terrible, sorry I just never liked the mecha designs from this franchise. Overall though it looks like it captures controlling a lumbering and towering walker very well...

Amazing. This makes me want a Steel Battalion 2 even more. :(

Looks fun! they really need to replace the voice actor though... kinda ruined it for me

cleverly scripted movie, but not actual gameplay. Looking pretty good though IF it was rendered by the engine in realtime. I'm not too sure about that either...

You see some elements from hong kong in the clip First seconds shows the IFC 2 building + the typical 4 story parking spaces as well.

Looks like unreal 3 engine to me. Pretty cool if you could play as a tiny human among giant robots.

Btw seems like we are going to get MechWarrior 4 for free sometime soon!

In honor of BattleTech's 25th anniversary, Smith & Tinker has authorized and MekTek Studios to distribute MechWarrior 4 (along with its expansion packs) completely free.

No download links yet but this is cool.

Don't know. But it feels like it's not controlled by a player.

You would think that if an explosion was caused ata mechs destruction the emergency escape system would include some sort of vertical propulsion as well, instead of landing on a flaming ball of hatred.

In other news, this game looks friggin awesome. I liked Mech Warrior for the xbox and it was pretty fun online.

Yeah the camera work looked so cinematic, and wierd. I couldnt play like that.
It looked & felt exactly like those other not-ingame trailers weve seen before.
Im sure the gfx will look similar, but just this trailer didnt really feel ingame. Felt like a cutscene.

Nice^^ I love this serie, But we can custom robot or not? thnx for the video:D
Commented on 2009-07-10 16:17:57
Hey Blim- You might want to change the title. The game director confirmed that it's not Mechwarrior 5. It's a complete reboot of the series and is just called Mechwarrior.

Video looks amazing. Hopefully the final game will end up coming close to matching it.
Commented on 2009-07-10 16:46:30
that was quite possibly the most boring mech fight i've ever seen? where the past games this slow and univentfull? or is it new to this game?
Commented on 2009-07-10 17:03:41
Sweet I love mech games and this looks awesome. Looks like they could do most of that video realtime, but some parts like when the pilot ejects and you see most of the city would be difficult to render smoothly.

was said in an interview earlier, you pick a "class" of bot and then you fit it and upgrade it however you want.

Isn't this made by the same folks who made the Transformers games ?
Commented on 2009-07-10 17:23:31
I just hope people undestand that this may not be representative of a "real gameplay product", just in-game script event of assets.

May they have favorable views and grab a strong publisher to get on the works real fast.

hmm, makes me miss chromehounds even more, such a great game that was, so team based and made pretty well, pity it didnt do better would of loved a sequel.
Commented on 2009-07-10 18:09:34
I can't help but feel like I'm just a regular sized guy in the game, moving reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally slow amongst some tiny buildings that are supposed to make me THINK that I'm really big. You have to pretend that you're in a mech so that moving slow and creeping around is ok, but really it's just.... meh. lol sorry to be a party pooper.

  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: Yes but this is the controller, the only one supplied with the console. Meaning to charge it, you have to attach it to the display AND have it docked - not even a cable??? (5 minutes ago)

    MrWhite Each area of the plantation you explore has a "boss" family member that stalks you throughout, sort of like Nemesis, and they all have their individual traits. (56 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Melmoth: Yeah, that appears to be the setting from the demo, but I've read some moderate spoilers, and it's definitely in tune to what the original game was, design and theme wise, with new elements (58 minutes ago)
