MechWarrior Online will contain an urban map called River City, which Piranha Games has described as having “unrelenting terrain.”

According to the description provided, the map will contain plenty of areas for those who prefer everything from “stealth scouting to long range support to all out brawling.”

The river itself splits the city into two opposing sides and is spanned by two bridges. A fortified citadel stands in the center and players will fight for control of two key sites: “a space port high on a plateau and a crucial industrial port facility on the ocean shoreline.”

River City is also surrounded by conflicted hillsides where airstrikes and artillery barrages are taking place.

If this sounds interesting, you should apply for the closed beta here.

Those who are interested in participating in the Founders Program have until September 6.

The free-to-play MechWarrior Online will launch on PC later this year.
