First trailer reveal for Heavy Gear Assault

Feb 19 // Alasdair Duncan    @Full_of_hornets

Revitalised mech combat franchise returns

If you needed any reminder that 2013 could well be the Year of the Mech, then this reveal trailer for Heavy Gear Assault should be another strong reminder that mechs are truly back. Developed by MekTekStudios and published by Stompy Robot, Heavy Gear Assault will be a gladiatorial combat title with the forcus on "over-the-top combat."

Whilst originally a tabletop title, Heavy Gear games came out on the PC back in the late '90s before falling out of fashion like other mech titles. With a renewed interest in the genre, I can see people wanting another type of mech game that plays differently from MechWarrior Online and Hawken. Heavy Gear Assault has a crowdfunding model seperate from Kickstarter, so it will be interesting to see if the game generates support.
