Yes, it’s true they are bringing back a classic with new life and vigor to the Clansphere. Mechwarrior is being recast for the future generation. I myself may in fact get this if for nothing else arching against some of my own archnemsises out there.
The one thing I caught watching the video was the mechs actually giving off heat and you can see the heat coming off the chassis and such. This might be in fact a new surge in MechWarrior/Battletech fandom. I think if anything lots of mecha fans will be excited for x-mas this yr. I’m kind of looking forward to it as well. Just take a look and judge for yourselves.
