For those who played MechAssault, River City was one of the most memorable online maps, and Piranha Games plan to pay homage to it in MechWarrior Online. This new trailer gives us a tour of the once-beautiful town, which is now an abandoned ruin playing host to tense and explosive battles. A mix of sniper roosts, open plains and claustophobic street fights should make this an interesting arena once MechWarrior Online releases later this year.
It will be free to play, but you can optionally register for the Founder's Program before September 6th. This will give you immediate access to the closed beta, 1-3 months of Premium account membership and some nifty decals depending on which tier you select (and how much you're willing to pay).
