Hmm, same JumpShip model as HBS game - shared with HBS by PGI or shared with PGI by HBS?

ComStar compound, let's just shoot it up, I'm sure that will go well...

Interesting - PGI running an MWO event that purports to list the 'Mechs and variants in MW5 - https://mwomercs.com/news/2019/11/2357-mw5-mech-sale-challenges

No Roughneck or Corsair, but also no Dervish, Vulcan, Charger or Marauder II...

That actually annoys me a ton. Like, the Dervish was something I actually wanted to use, along with a Corsair.

The most recent 'Mech released is Flea, so did PGI lock 'Mechs to be added in game as far back at early 2018? Rest for any future Clan Invasion era DLC expansion perhaps?

Also interesting, apparently MW5 will have Hero 'Mech variants among their roster, they are included in the list for the event and also the Shadow Hawk Hero is the first 'Mech piloted in the walkthrough video.

The list is a bit... uh, mixed?

RVN-2X/-4X in there, okay, later game maybe.
MAD-5D... yeah, well, let's say post-Helm prototype, not the production model. Sliiight bit of a stretch.

Bounty Hunter II though?

Game runs until the Clan Invasion, I suspect/hope we aren't getting things like the Mauler too early...

The game looks fantastic.

Which is why I'm probably not going to get it- I don't trust my laptop to be able to handle a game like that given that it's had issues with PS3/XBox 360 games.

Beta is impressively beautiful and runs like butter on my machine.  Now I wish MWO had been on the unreal engine; what a difference!

Cons:  AI reminds me of MW3.  It is that bad!

Enemy or lancemate AI ? If the latter, did you try switching the setting to another level?

Intro cinematic! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GlM-WLsXLw

Of course Beta owners could have watched it already if they dug around in the game folders, video guides for all the game features there...

Enemy or lancemate AI ? If the latter, did you try switching the setting to another level?

Both and even though you can bump up the supposed quality of your AI lance mates, the harder missions are just "throw more waves of enemies" difficulty increase not smarter enemies.

Wow, please tell me the opening cinematic is in beta too.   I mean, when I first start a campaign?  Sure.  When I first load the game? No.  That was crap.

Look at mechwarrior 4 and Mechcommander.  Those were intros!  Hell, even MW4:Mercs' in game footage intro was better than this. EDIT: HBS did better and they used all 2D images!

I could live with that video, it was the voiceover that made me cringe.

I think I may have to admit that I've been so eager for a new MW game for so long that my expectations may have become unrealistic because this does not look promising so far  :(

Apparently the Corsair actually is in the game, according to some link someone posted from Discord;

Been watching a bit on Twitch, and so far I like a lot of what I am seeing.

Couple of things though.

Some of the maps might be a bit on the small side. IMO. Warzone for example.

Dropships are dropping way too close to the fight. There would be a lot of crashed Leopards due to lawn dart checks. In this game they seem to be invincible. Warzone and Defense missions are good missions to see this.

Pulse Lasers sound like a machine gun. Huh? Hopefully just a placeholder for the Beta.

If the enemy is in range most likely so are you.

MW5 how it basically works
This was more interesting. Showing how the repair system works and how game works.

I certainly look forward to the steam version. I've been watching the Twitch beta runs. Sucker not ready yet.  Guy playing was blinded by Jagermech's acs and utterly killed his Nightstar.

Did they ever say why the King Crab is the flagship mech for the game?

I mean, it's pretty cool. And dangerous. And I'd assume they didn't want the Atlas as the mascot again.

Now, as for why they didn't go for a Trebuchet as the mascot? I'm not sure, but I'm mad about that.

It's a cool mech, but it's really not at all iconic of the time period the game is set in.
