Somewhere at the end of the previous millennium, he had a genre of action-simulation games that allowed players to enter into the fictional universe of the BattleTech box game and to drive massive destruction machines with an arsenal of cannons And missiles - all within a busy and complicated interface that gave the titles the necessary futuristic feel at a time when visual capabilities were very primitive compared to what we are used to today.

The years have gone by and like many high-end niche games for new users, the terrific bots have also stepped back - until now, as independent Canadian developer Pirnha Games is planning the return of the most famous series in this specific genre, MechWarrior.

MechWarrior 5 was announced about a year ago, technically, but the first real gameplay is only revealed to us now

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be launched as 17 years after the MechWarrior 4, based on the Unreal Engine 4 engine and with single-player or co-op mode for four players together, allowing players to rebuild the most effective war machine they can ever imagine Graphically impressive and much advanced, of course much more. There will even be support for various models that will build amateur players.

A pair of fresh gameplay videos allow us to get a better idea of ​​what awaits us in the coming year, from those people who created the free, robotic mass-destruction title MechWarrior Online, which will continue to operate and evolve in the foreseeable future alongside this new version. Are you impressed, or not so?

The road to MechWarrior 5's official launch is still far, with a target date somewhere in December 2018 - but we certainly hope to see a product here that will honor its origins on the one hand, and find a new target audience that will bring new life to this title and perhaps others to follow.
