I'll double the yes because this is a game series that is long, long, long overdue to come back to PC gaming. To have this as a MMO is even better.

Never heard of it. If it's a downloadable(Not Browser) F2P game, I'll try it out. If it isn't, well I'll overlook this pretty quickly.

@J45neoboy You've never heard of MechWarrior? You are relatively new to PC gaming then and relatively young, and this is a perfect example of why they need to get this game out sooner rather than later.

@urgan I've actually only grown into PC Gaming with Oblivion, and MMOs shortly afterwards. Therefore I am new to the genre compared to the majority of the people on this site, once again, I stand by my statement =)

@J45neoboy. Its a sad state of the community of this website when someone gets down-voted TWICE simply because they have not heard of a particular IP. Pathetic.

They made an XBox version of it called MechAssault, if that names familiar to you?

I've been saying this on all kinds of threads here on Massively. I love Mechwarrior and have been posting all over the net for 8 years asking for a Mechwarrior MMO, but I'd never downrate a person because they hadn't heard of a game. An immature person would though.

Of course I am worried that this will end up with a cash shop at which point wouldn't play the game I've been waiting for almost a decade to be made.

Mech assault is far and away the worst representation of Battletech/Mechwarrior in gaming history... Serioulsy, a cougar with 2 gauss rifles?? If btech were real that'd be 2 legs attached to 2 guns.

Oooh yeah :D

Setting an MMO in the Mechwarrior universe makes sense for so many reasons. And here I was just hoping for a new MW game :)

@urgan It DOES makes sense but more in the tabletop version of Mechwarrrior, being the pilot with interpersonal interactions. rather than only stuck in the cockpit.

Because while fighting off enemies with superior numbers in superior mechs is dramatic in that uniquely videogame way...

having your barracks blow up...fighting your way in the dark past uber tech ninjas using cybernetics, ersatz lightsabres, and insane fanaticism, to get to your Mech and have to get through the startup procedure as people outside want you very much dead....

THAT is my dream. If it happens to be the fall of the Star League or other major in universe event, I might kill something for that.

I really hope this turns out well, I loved playing the mechwarrior games, and the universe and lore are amazing.

Okay I'm interested. But if you tell me it has anything to do with F2P, Korea (no offense to the wonderful Koreans), browser-based, or Facebook, I'll block your site in my Firefox.
