Doing Your Part


This is a juicy month. We’re diving into one of the largest design pillars, Role Warfare. There’s so much content, we have two developer blogs. February is a special month for PGI, as we charge towards GDC and some really exciting announcements.


Developer Blog 3

This month features a two part blog. The first part, released today, covers a general overview of Role Warfare. On Friday, we delve deeper into the Pilot Tree, Modules, and BattleMech XP system.
Developer Interview 4 – Omid Kiarostami, Thad Jantzi, and Kevin Meek

This month continues the trifecta trend, as we discuss what Role Warfare means to the various departments within the studio. From the engineering department, Omid steps up to the plate. From the level designers, Thad Jantzi takes the reigns, and finally from the art department we have Kevin Meek.
Developer Q&A 4

We’ll open up questions today (the topic should be open by the time you're reading this.)
Wednesday Surprise

Does anyone else think BattleMech 7 is coming?
Extra Wednesday

Let’s just say something pretty freaking awesome. This is going to be a big one. No it’s not BETA. But we we’re getting close to that announcement.

We've added that to the list of Rumoured Mechs over at MechSpecs.com

For those that haven't registered yet, you might wanna do that soon cause soon we are removing the juicy good stuff from "Guest" viewers ;)

If the Awesome makes it in, it will be an easy choice for me come game day! Unless, however, i become so excited my brain shuts down. ^_^

Two dev blogs in one week? Can a single week contain so much goodness?

This all sounds fantastic, and I can't wait. I didn't know Role Warfare was going to present so prominently. I know I really enjoyed Information Warfare last month, because that's going to be enormously important on the battlefield, but I can't wait to dig in to Role Warfare.

Lol. Did anyone else get there hopes up and then dashed between: "It's going to be a big one. No it's not BETA." I'm such an over reactor.

Well, a while back it was announced we'd see news about the beta (not necessarily meaning we'd be IN the beta at that time) which would come to about mid-march. PGI/IGP are at the GDC in San Fran, CA that runs from the 5th to 9th of March. I'm thinking that we're gonna get some pretty shack goodness around that time. Only about 32 more days!
