MechWarrior Online First Video Dev Diary

Russ Bullock, president of developer Piranha Games, explains the four pillars of gameplay for the forthcoming MechWarrior Online
Infinite Game Publishing and Piranha Games have released a video developer diary for MechWarrior Online, offering new details about the first officially licensed free-to-play title in the long-standing and award-winning MechWarrior franchise. Set in the year 3049 during the early stages of a massive interstellar war, MechWarrior Online puts you in command of the most powerful war machine to ever walk the field of battle, the mighty BattleMech. You will command your Mech and customize it to suit your battlefield role; upgrade systems, replace weapons, and tweak armor with endless options. MechWarrior Online lets players command at will: go head-to-head online alone or with friends in high-octane Conquest and VS modes.
MechWarrior Online is due to be launched on August 7th, 2012.
