A new video for MechWarrior Online has been released, showing a landing party arriving in a landscape filled with “acidic haze and caustic heat.” The high temperatures throughout the entire map will greatly affect gameplay, as everything will tend to overheat. Players can make use of cooler weapons such as ballistics, which contain a reduced heat profile and long-ranged weapons will be beneficial on the map as well. Watch the video below. You can sign up for the closed beta here.
