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.
