Are you a fan of Cryteks CryEngine 3? Interested in mech battles in the year of 3049? Here is a game for you then! We recently wrote about Hawke as one of the most promising future vehicle-based fps-titles. However, it would be unfair not to mention the leading franchise in the mech-genre, Piranha Games MechWarrior and the next big installment in the series: MechWarrior Online. The game was just recently shown at Game Developers Conference. Though it mostly showed segments of battle MechWarrior online will offer a lot of customizable gameplay. Players can form their own mercenary corps, tweak armor and weapons and upgrade systems of their battlemechs. While Hawke gets released by the end of 2012, MechWarrior Online will be out in stores sometime during this summer. Like Hawke it will also be free to play. For more info on the beta, developer blogs and tons of nice media, head over to the games own website.
