The lights are on
Piranha Games is working on the free to play, mech simulator MechWarrior Online. Hop inside the cockpit of the Catapult mech.
MechWarrior Online give players access to the most powerful war machine ever to do battle. Set in the year 3049, during the early stages of a massive interstellar war, players will be able to customize their mech by upgrading its systems, replacing its weapons, and tweaking its armor.
Here are a few screens of the Catapult mech, an indirect-fire model that excels at blanketing a target in LRM fire. The Catapult can fire on enemies without being in visual contact with them and is fitted with jump jets and four medium lasers.
Check out the games original teaser trailer here.

Sounds pretty badical :D
That's cool that it is free to play. Pretty cool looking mech too.
Thought this was Black Ops 2 for a second...
Wow that looks...fun..
Already registered my pilot name!
Looks Cool under the radar...
Feh. Bring on the Mad Cat, Ax Man or Bushwacker and I'll be happy:)
I'm only really familiar with Battletech through the mind-blowing cartoon from the 90's (mind-blowing because all the mech battles were done in then state-of-the-art CG). I was too busy playing Earthsiege/Starsiege instead. So I'm looking forward to familiarizing myself with all these mechs later this year...although, since I favor arcadey games more, I'll probably be playing Reign of Thunder or Hawken instead. But hey, it's F2P, I'll give this a shot.
looking good looking good
