IGN’s gone live with full details, screens, a proper movie and an interview on what has now been confirmed as a full MechWarrior reboot, and it looks very fucking cool.

The PC and 360 game is set on the planet Deshler in the year 3015, and places players in the role of Adrian Khol, a wayward nobleman who prefers partying over training and studies.

When House Kurita launches an invasion to conquer Deshler, resulting in the death of his entire family, Khol goes mental with his big robot.

We’re psyched. Watch the movie. It includes a mech with a massive skull. Good enough for us.

No date.

    Er… the video’s a bit of a disappointment. :-D

    Amazing fact: I have never played a MechWarrior game.

    I’m really pumped for this. I loved the old games. It’s proper geeky “realistic” robot shit.

    This is great news & I loved the Mech games but to rain on the parade its stated in the article they haven’t actually found a publisher yet and pre-announcing such games without a deal can backfire (e.g Faith & 45)

    Its also nice they have set in the classic Battletech universe pre-Clans as the whole thing went down the drain with the attempted reboots of the universe after the clans.

    The video posted here is just the teaser, you need to click through to get the reveal trailer, wich looks rather good.

    Whoops. Sorry. It’s giving the wrong embed code. I’ve added a link to the big video.

    It looks stunning visually, but the combat looked kinda weak-ass boring.

    Heh there is a lot of testosterone in that trailer! Looks great though.

    Looks great. Definitely a nod to the Mechwarrior 2 intro FMV, which I hope means they intend to bring back that classic gameplay and atmosphere of the early games.

    Decent SP please, and a persistant war mode online (Like ChromeHounds) and a nice theatre mode for filming shit getting blown up.

    I’m quite surprised the guy thought he had a chance against an Atlas, even I said “oh shit” when it appeared.
