New BattleTech Trailers Show Off Ship Customization and Gameplay Footage (VIDEO)
During the PC Gaming Show at this year’s E3, Jordan Weisman and Mitch Gitelman took to the stage to show off new BattleTech trailers. Said videos provide gamers with a great look at customization option aboard Argo, as well as a brief look at gameplay footage that is sure to wet one’s whistle. For those not in the know, BattleTech is the upcoming turn-based combat title that is based on the BattleTech franchise of yesteryear. Harebrained Schemes took to Kickstarter in 2015 for funding, and they successfully raised more than 10 times what they were asking. Thus, the updated game was born!
The first of the two BattleTech trailers shows off Argo, which is the ship that will become your new home, and what can be customized in it. We get a look at the Mech Bay, Command Center, Navigation, and more. The display also reveals C-bills(money) vs. operating costs as well as time of “burn” remaining. One can assume this means how much fuel Argo has left. Check it out for yourself in the video below:
The second of the two BattleTech trailers give players what they really want: gameplay footage. While it is a bit brief, it still provides glimpses of movement, long and short-range combat, as well as many other things. While it is still being developed, the game looks wonderful so far, and those who are anticipating its release can keep that hype train rolling. BattleTech is slated to come out sometime in 2017, but in the meantime, you can check out the gameplay video below:
