It’s all about the Reboot

First off, what a week! The response to the MechWarrior® Online™ announcement has been overwhelming! Thanks to everyone who has registered their pilot name and visit our forums! Over 22,000 posts in 7 days! If you haven’t already done so, make sure to register now!

Now it’s time to roll out some plans we’ve been brewing here at Piranha. There are so many exciting features to discuss, that we’ve come up with a schedule designed to reveal everything there is to know about MechWarrior® Online™. We are delivering content using a series of blogs, interviews, and Q&A sessions as follows:

First Wednesday - Developer Blog

We kick off the month with a major reveal about the game and its features. Blogs will take form of written articles or video diaries.

Second Wednesday - Developer Interview

Step behind the curtain and get to know the team behind MechWarrior® Online™.

Third Wednesday - Community Update

Community Update is a forum for players to ask questions and get answers directly from the developers.

Fourth Wednesday - A Big Surprise.

At the end of each month, we plan to reveal something really cool!

During the month of November, Piranha will be discussing Rebooting the franchise and what that means for MechWarrior® Online™. Here’s a preview from November’s Developer Interview with concept artist, Alex Iglesias.

Are there any Mechs that you are scared of rebooting?

Probably the Timber Wolf, I know that if I mess that one up, I will never hear the end of it, and will probably have to try to outrun a few pitchfork wielding mobs.

Are there any Mechs you can't wait to redesign? Why?

I really want to redesign the mechs with bizarre legs that seem to defy physics in some sense, like the Stalker or Black Python, in order to fix the problem. Aside from that, basically any historically awkward or generic looking mech that has usually been overlooked in favour of the cool looking ones, I’d love to polish them up, and bring out the cool factor for them.

The full interview will be posted right here at on Wednesday at 10AM PST.
