The latest video for MMO MechWarrior Online is perhaps the most interesting yet. Covering customization, combat, and controls, it also delivers some mighty exciting gameplay, and should do well to get you amped for the eventual launch. Check it out below.
Note the end portion of the video, where one of the designers explains torso and arm movement are separate. With that and the internal perspective, it looks like Piranha Games is doing a lot to really make you feel like you're piloting a mech. If you want to go all out, joysticks will be supported, but you're on your own if you're thinking of building a cockpit.
