It's great that they arent going multiplayer only. Hope it turns out well.

Oh please,  be good.  One of my fondest memories as a kid was moving up from a 486 Dx2 to a Pentium 100 mhz chip and 16MB of ram and finally getting to play Mechwarrior 2 in something like decent graphical fidelity.  I loved how unforgiving it was... distinctly remember being locked in combat with another mech trying to complete a mission and having one leg blown off... and using jump jets to "hop" around trying to finish.  I was the one legged mech in an ass kicking contest.  If new single player can capture even a little of that hardcore simulation feel and marry it with some modern storytelling elements, i'll be a happy lad.

I really, really hope this turns out well. Hopefully Piranha Games will do MechWarrior 5 well, considering they did a decent job with MechWarrior Online.

Heavy Gear Assault, developed by MekTek Studios, went on Early Access on Steam for around $30 and it is not faring well (so far 40% positive reviews). I only bring it up since Heavy Gear was mainly a spin-off from the MechWarrior franchise.
