Is there anything more fun than massive suits of mechanical armor smashing into one another and firing lasers all over the place? MechWarrior Online
, the free-to-play MMO-like set in the MechWarrior
universe and developed by Piranha Games
, would argue that the answer to that question is pretty obvious.
Piranha has just today announced the addition of a new Command Hero Mech, christened Death's Knell. The mech is tiny by MechWarrior
standards, weighing in at only 25 tons, but it packs four powerful lasers on each arm and is quite fast to boot. Piranha also confirmed the addition of the familiar Bitching Betty
startup sequence, which should give longtime MechWarrior
fans a jolt of nostalgia straight through the eardrums.
We sat down with Russ Bullock
, president of Piranha Games, to talk mechs
, MMOs, and the future of MechWarrior Online
. Check out the full interview and a video of Death's Knell in action after the break.
