You'll see some of the components of the video in the final game, most notably a version of the start up sequence. Some of the elements are for entertainment purposes only. We plan to use a lot of what you see post launch for a gameplay mode currently in design. The rest of the assets are going to be re-used for MechLab.


Will their be colour paletts other than brown for our mechbays?

Makes me think the Sklpaoiouer may be the place for me. (unless I can get my dropship license back)

Not for launch. The final colour of the MechLab is still being developed. We might tie it into the player's faction/merc corp.

I got chills when I heard the familiar startup sequence... except it ended with "all systems online" instead of "all systems nominal". Is that set in stone, or will you appease the old hands and switch it to nominal? What if I say please?

Also, love the fact that the hula girl survived. :)

If memory serves me right, the Daishi was indeed used in 3050 by the Smoke Jaguars when they invaded the Combine, and was named by the Combine (Daishi is japanese and means "Great Death").


YOU SIR, have the best signature of forum history. That is all; good day.

Dreams becoming reality, finally. It's like the next mech game is already on the doorstep waiting to be let in. [Is wondering why it hasn't smashed its way in already.]

Well, after those bombshells from Bryan, I think I can finally rest easy for once.

Can't wait to see what they have planned for GDC. [Better not be behind closed doors, and we have to read some boring article again. I need more video.]

Interesting, tie the swankyness to rank?


Actually I was mostly having a dig at the low saturation/brown art direction. MW4 did the same thing and it was sad.

As far as how close to gameplay I'd say that might be a joke on that trailer is/may be what you see JUST before gameplay (I E if the game kept going you would see gameplay 2 secs later) But also he isn't really lying completely, in the trailer you can see the H U D kick in and I'd wager that's what we will see during gameplay. All random speculation tho.

First of all, it is not a "Daishi." That would be a Spheroid nick-name. It is called a Dire Wolf. Calling it a Daishi all the time is like calling an Awesome "Dumb Overheating Blob Thingy."
Second, you are right the Smoke Jaguars used the Dire Wolf in their assaults, but it was also used commonly by other invading Clans, much to the dismay of the Inner Sphere.


I believe the notable Ms Kerensky was killed in one.

Technicaly you can stack 9 Urbanmechs in the hangars of 3 Atlas and still have free space to stuff a lance of Locusts.
