It seems mechs are coming back into style. (Did they ever truly leave?) Besides Hawken, we've got Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, MechWarrior Online, and now another project, MechWarrior Tactics, has surfaced. These are only the games that immediately come to my mind, so there's bound to be more.
The website doesn't have much information regarding what genre Tactics might be in, but you are allowed to reserve a commander name right now. If the countdown is any indication, we'll find out more next week. I hope it ends in another countdown that, in turn, reveals a teaser image.
