CryENGINE 3 to Power MechWarrior Online

MechWarrior Online was announced several weeks ago and details about the free-to-play title have been little to none since then; however, it has been revealed that it will be powered by the CryENGINE®3.

The CryENGINE has been known to deliver technically impressive visuals and Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games, believes that it will fit perfectly with their vision of the game. "It is definitely the best choice for us: Both the character animation pipeline with the procedurally and physics based animations and the destruction system fit our goals perfectly…”

MechWarrior Online is set for launch sometime in the summer of 2012.
