Still waiting for MechWarrior 5, eh? What about a mod based on a cutting-edge engine? Will that tide you over? If so, the Wandering Samurai team have quite a gift for you, as they have just released the beta version of their Crysis mod MechWarrior: Living Legends. If the title of the mod isn’t clue enough for you, Wandering Samurai basically turned Crysis into a MechWarrior game. I’m not a fan of MechWarrior, but if you are, now is a good and serious time to ask yourself if your computer can play Crysis.
Here’s the trailer, go pass out:
You can download the beta release of MechWarrior: Living Legends via torrent, or check out the mod’s official site for direct download mirrors. Regardless of your chosen method of downloading the mod, you should still poke around the site because it has installation details as well as a key map/control guide, the mastery of which is a feat in itself as it appears to be as complicated as the controls for heavy machinery. Seriously there are like 12 commands mapped to the mouse alone.
