Pirahna president Russ Bullock has confirmed to IGN that the newly-revealed MechWarrior reboot is to have four-way co-op, with each player taking on a separate mech in a “lance,” a robot team built of light, medium, heavy, and assault class mechs.
“We’re really aiming for four player co-op,” said the dev. “I really want to see the possibility for anywhere between one and four. Again, these are just initial thoughts, but similar to how in Gears of War, you can go through the entire campaign with someone or not. We’d like to have that – I’d love to see you going through that.
Bullock added that the MechWarrior IP in general is well-suited for co-op play.
“We can’t imagine hardly a better property for it: when you think of a lance as four mechs, we have an opportunity here to have a four-player lance, all with player controlled mechs and utilizing all four classes of the mechs in the universe from light, medium, heavy, and assault,” he said.

The game was confirmed for PC and 360 today, although it’s looking very early doors at the moment.

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.

Voodoo Extreme’s dropped some fairly obvious hints that a new MechWarrior game’s in the works. FASA that. Ahem.
Pirahna‘s doing it, apparently.
There’s a very short teaser trailer through there and a promise of a fuller movie later this week.
Looks as though it’s a contemporary setting from what’s shown there. Could be cool.
