Upcoming game titles of interest

MechWarrior Online

It’s been over ten years since a title set in the BattleTech universe has appeared.  The last title being Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries.

This new MechWarrior entry developed by Pirahah Games will be player vs. player centric.  I am gathering that they will handle it like Diablo in that one will purchase the  game and then be able to play for free over the Internet.

One of the interesting things they are doing is to have the player join an Inner Sphere houses and run a Lance of Mechs for that house.  Area taken by the House will be persistent on the server.

MechWarrior Online will run on the CryEngine (Far Cry, Crysis) so we can expect the Mech battles to look amazing.

Elder Scrolls Online

The venerable Elder Scrolls series has had some of the most amazing graphics and immerse single-player content ever devised for the Fantasy Role-Playing genre.   Such recent games as Skyrim and Oblivion are multiple award winning titles.

Elder Scrolls Online should make an amazing Massive Multi-Player Online Game addition to the series.

Aliens: Colonial Marines

I have mentioned this one before, but now they have pushed back the release date to early 2013.  We will be waiting awhile yet to give it a go.  Still, a highly anticipated release and the trailer should get your pulse pounding.

Tomb Raider

Lara Croft will arrive in a new harrowing adventure in 2013.  In this case, it will be her “First” adventure as we find a young Lara Croft stranded on an island and surviving on her wits in an open-ended action adventure.  The title is simply “Tomb Raider” and will be a reboot of sorts.  The screen shots of the game at Square Enix are amazing to behold and I think this one is going to be a joy to play through.

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

Releases Sept. 25, 2012.

The fourth expansion to the largest and most successful massive multi-player online role playing game offers new challenges to veteran and starting players.  WOW’s million’s of subscribers will be spending lots of late nights soon checking out the new content.
