If you're looking forward to the future of warfare today, you're probably keeping a close eye on the development of MechWarrior Online
. And the developers are no doubt aware of this, as they've just posted a lengthy set of answers
on the game's official forums, covering a broad range of topics from update speed to character development. While the answers confirm that at this point the software is still yet to see an alpha test, there's still a great deal of information therein.
Aside from a few answers that are likely to prove discordant come launch (such as plans for biweekly update patches), the team is aiming at starting off with a strong PvP environment with persistent world elements in a similar fashion to MAG
. PvE will not be in at launch, but it is on the table for later release. That's only the barest summary of the information in the full set of answers
, which should keep any intent pilot eagerly anticipating his or her personal 'Mech.
