Infinite Game Publishing, Roadhouse Interactive, and A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. Games are working on MechWarrior Tactics, a free-to-play, browser-based, turn-based strategy game set in the MechWarrior universe set for release later this year. They released a brief trailer last week, showing off a game board and some of the animations for units in action.
Like the classic board game, MW Tactics allows players to choose from a vast armada of customizable mechanized death machines and pit them against each other in turn-based battles. The developers promise a rich online gaming experience, including ranked games, worldwide leaderboards, and the ability to play multiple games at once.
Infinite is also the publishing house responsible for MechWarrior Online, so it looks like they’re in the ‘mech driver’s seat for bringing this venerable franchise online.
In fact, one has to wonder if the two titles won’t be in competition a little, thought it could be reasoned that MWT will appeal to “old school” board game fans while MWO is engineered more for younger fans of video games.
