MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries

It has been a very long time since I last played a MechWarrior game. In fairness though, it’s been a very long time since one worth playing was released. When I did, therefore, hear about MechWarriors 5 being in development, while it wasn’t necessarily top of my hype list, I have been treating it with more than a little curiosity.

For those of you unfamiliar with the franchise, the premise is rather straight-forward. You have your walking robot which you can customise and upgrade with better armour, weapons and even (if you wish) make it fly. Are you interested? Well, if so, there’s good news for you!

Piranha Games, the team behind the latest release have just released a brand new gameplay trailer and it’s certainly looking good!

Is It Going To Be Good?

This does seem to be the critical question. Particularly, as above, since the last few games in the franchise were largely either bad or entirely forgettable affairs. We have, however, already seen that the game looks great. In addition, it does seem to be offering some very impressive environmental effects. Specifically, that you can destroy buildings as if your MechWarrior was Godzilla.

With several months to go until it’s actually released, it may be early days, but so far MechWarrior 5 is looking very impressive indeed. The 4-player coop, additionally, sounds awesome.

MechWarrior 5 will release for the PC, Xbox One and PS4 on September 10th.

    It pisses me off when article writers who know nothing about the game or even some knowledge [even worse] use Mechwarrior to describe the battlemechs. The battlemech would be akin to godzilla. The Mechwarrior is just the pilot.

    • Mike Sanders says:

      You need to find other things to get upset about. Consider that the article is written to help people who DO know nothing about the game franchise. It has, after all, been at least 5 years since the last release and over 15 since Mechwarrior 4.
