MechWarrior coming to a PC near you as a Free to Play MMO

Alright MechWarrior fans, here it is. The MechWarrior universe is being created as a Free to Play MMO. How much the game will cost hasnt been disclosed as far as I can tell, probably the traditional $50, but it will be free to play online creating some stiff competition for Guild Wars 2 when it releases. All your basic knowledge of the original games will be incorporated and you will have complete customization control over your mech such as paint and weapon upgrades and load out. MWO will also include classes such as scout, attacker, defender and commander, to suite the players preferred game style. And for an MMO this will probably be the best looking out there as it will run on CryEngine 3, and as it is a PC exclusive game it will utilize DX11 to show it off, and to accommodate low to mid range systems it will also support DX9 and 10. So there it is folks, the MechWarrior universe that has garnered a massive following throughout the years is coming to you in a free to play MMO, also as an MMO there of course will be no single player campaign.

    I want to keep my hopes up for this. I want to believe its guna have a massive option list for mech parts, styles, mechanics. An mmo would make it cool but honestly i just wanna own some other noob mechs already. Pvp hell yes.

    I’m kinda saddened by this, honestly. I was also hoping for a true full on MechWarrior sequel, and it looks like we’re going to get a watered down Free2Play game :-/

    This actually sorta scares me. I’ve always loved the Mechwarrior franchise and I’m afraid this is going to dumb it down for the masses. I’ve been anxiously awaiting another Mechwarrior title and I was hoping with the announcement of the new one a couple years back that we’d see another triple AAA title but from the looks of it we aren’t going to get one.

    I keep seeing Mech games popping up that are in dev but never seem to see the light of day I hope this one does make it past the beta stage and we all can dominate some clans
