Embedded video isn't working, but works fine if you go to the PC Gamer site.

@Zax19

Confirmed on the forums that the atlas is the same as in game and the cockpit and HUD are the gameplay versions. So this is as close as we get till maybe GDC this weekend when they are supposed to have more.

@(Unverified) I've probably been too harsh, it's just doing anything more than an arena based game takes a lot of manpower, money and a great deal of balancing. Looking at the forum things like the speed of mech production, no melee, no infantry and tanks, heat, jump jets... it looks really difficult to create. I'd love to be able to recreate scenes from the books such as ambushes, being able to body-check, go prone and snipe away, or simply use my favourite mechs (Shadow Hawk, Marauder or Panther).

We don't know about the marauder yet, but you will probably see the shadow hawk and panther if not at release then within the first year I would imagine.

I don't like these kinds of "trailers", where they detail pretty much nothing except in this case that there are Mechs - which I think we pretty much already knew, going in. When we start seeing some actual action, I will become interested. Was a huge fan of the old Mechwarrior games, from 2 on. I still have 4 and the Black Knight expansion in my box collection haha.

I don't know why, but I always expected an Atlas cockpit to be...much, much larger.

On the one hand the trailer doesn't tell us much. On the other hand, it got me excited and it sets the mood very well. I can't wait!

There could have been a little more full frontal on the Mech, but whatever. I'm definitely interested in the title. Hopefully, this game does not pan out like Perpetuum.

A Hotdrop with a Atlas? Ummmmm also a Orbital Hotdrop?

I'm super excited fro a new MechWarrior title since most of them were made before I was born...but bloody hell read the Battletech source books.

why waste time inputting your age so they can gather metrics, age verification is simple theft of information. And why wast more time on this title when there are still multi-player servers running the old mechawarrior games?

Thats all this is, arena bs. Ala section 8.

"Boo hoo!!! I didn't get the trailer that I wanted!"

You'd think some of you ppl never heard of marketing. You'll get what you get when they give it to you and you'll like it. Or you won't. Either way, whining about not having in game video is a waste of time.

...much like this post.

@dudemanjac Well all it shows is how stupid their Marketers are
. You don't make a MechWarrior film aimed at fans of Battletech and MechWarrior and make said Mechs do stupid things that they never can do...like Orbital hotdrops.
What that says is:

"Hey guys we have the MechWarrior license and we plan to totally fuck it up for you."

And if MechWarrrior and Battletech fans don't like what they are doing guess what?

Go look at the forums and see how many folks loved it and you would easily be proven wrong. As far as hot drops, they did that in previous Mechwarrior games before.....

Can't wait for this game. There hasn't been a decent mech simulator in forever.
