Piranha Games has announced a series of updates for MechWarrior Online this week including a live Twitch.tv "play against the developers" session that will take place tonight at 6:00 pm Pacific/9:00 pm Eastern.
- Get your new Cataphract Mech today! - The Cataphract was one of the first original designs created since the start of the Succession wars. Originally a Capellan Mech, the Cataphract can be seen in all areas of the Inner Sphere. Created from spare parts of other Mechs that were handy, the Cataphract has been dubbed the ‘FrankenMech’ due to its appearance. Designed to stand toe-to-toe with an Assault Mech, the Cataphract is built to have a lot of armor, jump-jets for maneuverability, and a large punch from its arsenal. If you like to wade into the fight and duke it out at close range, this is definitely your Mech. It has great armor protection, jump jets, and a heavy punch. Four variants are available and feel free to repost the attached images.
- Play against Piranha Games on Twitch, 11/21 at 6 pm Pacific/9 pm Eastern - Login at www.twitch.tv/IGP to play live against the developer, Piranha Games.
- New Environment setting Frozen City at Night - Tangle with your opponents as you dodge through the huge shadows, with very large shooting lanes as the fog has disappeared entirely.
