Well, there goes my social life.

Pirahna Games is going to launch the Mechwarrior reboot as a free to play MMO.

A tactical sim MMO.

From the interview:
MechWarrior online, in keeping with the original games, will feature a variety of maps set across different environments and climates. In a universe where heat plays such a major role, with Mechs overheating from weapons fire and local temperature, that means different weather will make for very different tactics.

But big difference from previous games will be urban combat. ?One of the things we can do these days that previous games weren?t able to do well is urban combat,? Ekman says. ?And it?s a cornerstone of MWO, this ability to actually fight in detailed urban settings.?

Pirahna Games are also already taking username reservations over at their main site. Got mine done.
