The MechWarrior franchise, appearing on both the PC and Xbox throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s, was, at its core, about pitting large piloted machines called mechs in battle against each other. The MechWarrior games were known for being complex; weapons would overheat, customizing your mech was of the utmost importance and nearly every key or button was used to control your robotic behemoth of death. Due to legal issues, the MechWarrior series fell into obscurity, until now: the upcoming MechWarrior Online is a free-to-play action game set to launch on the PC. MechWarrior Online combines all the aspects fans have come to expect from the series with one major change; now, every mech you’re fighting against is piloted by a human instead of an artificial intelligence.
