MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries: 10 Minutes of NEW GAMEPLAY

More gameplay has just been released for the upcoming singleplayer Mechwarrior title. Mechwarrior 5 won’t be out until late in 2018, but a playable demo will be available at MechCon, which will take place on December 9 in Vancouver, BC.

The game is still in a very early alpha state, so don’t expect too much polish. But for fans of giant heavily-armed robots, there’s plenty here to love. What there is so far certainly does impart the feeling of stomping around in a massive war machine. Blasting away at structures and gun emplacements with rockets and heavy cannons looks pretty fun too. Although the particular pilot could learn a little about facing.

The destructible environment tech and varied topography do a lot to add to the experience, even if the color palette is a little samey.

Overall, Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries looks to be a good prospect for anyone with nostalgia or passing interest in the franchise.
