MechWarrior Online trailer visits the Frozen City

MechWarrior Online developer Piranha Games has revealed the icy level Frozen City and its chilling effects on combat, with a video for you to look at and everything.

One of the perks of being a mech pilot is travelling the galaxy and visiting many planets, seeing the sights and taking in the culture before loading up your missiles and heading off to explode men. Add a pin for Frozen City to that big map on your bedroom wall, as MechWarrior Online developer Piranha Games has revealed the icy environment and its chilling effects on combat.

Snowfall comes and goes in Frozen City, so you'll need to rely more on sensors and scouting as the blizzards roll in. The inclement weather also means heat builds up in weapons more slowly, so you can blast away for longer. Ice underfoot means heavy mechs will be even less nimble, taking longer to stop when they're at speed. A lovely place to visit, clearly.

MechWarrior Online is launching free-to-play on PC later this year.

      I'll certainly load up my exploding men for this. (?)

      hmm, I wonder if piloting skill comes into play in this game? Better traction the longer you've played the game? I'd like to see some newbies slip and fall because they think they can run around like idiots on the ice. Also, love the thermal sensors, brings me back ;)

          we need to seriously make the shack clan a force of DICKING FIRE!!!

          I was a GOD at mechwarrior 2 online, and what little i played MW4 and MERCS, I was a GOD. mechwarrior may be the one online game I was actually good at. I look forward to utterly dismantling WOMEN AND PUSSIES with my BATTLEMECH.

          i am not kidding. we all like to talk a big game on this internet, but i seriously am going to BREAK VAGINAS when this game comes out.

          just thinking about it makes me want to talk like mace. i suck so much at world of tanks, because my BRAINGUN cannot adapt to primate level machines. when i plug into a GIANT FUCKING ROBOT i am going to flood the whole godamn thing with BRAINCOCK and DO REAL GOOD.

        i dont think I will. from a purely financial perspective though, ive spent a ton on games lately. however, this is MECHWARRIOR

        if ever a man had a just cause to spend money on a game, surely this is the time? we will see.

        if you were automatically given a beta key for buying a founders package I'd pull the trigger, but, that's not the case. If I get in and like what I find, I'll spend the cash, no problem.

          That was my original though as well, then the beta footage started leaking and I lost control of my wallet.

      On a scale of 1-10 how does the game rate do far? Mind you Mechwarrior 2 and it's expansion for me are at least a 9.
