MechWarrior Online talks map design and tree destruction in a new video

Screw you, trees.

Trees are awful. They are the actual worst. MechWarrior Online lets you stomp around in a war machine, but for too long it has denied players the right and ability to really destroy the heck out of those trees. Probably. The point is that the latest development vlog talks about destroyable trees, and boy, that’s a topic that everyone can enjoy.

Said vlog also discusses upcoming River City improvements, which is relevant seeing as how that’s a major map in the game and players will want to know about it, but it’s not tree destruction. You can decide for yourself which is more important by watching the video below; it’s about half an hour long, so do not watch it if you’re short on time.

RicharddeLeonIII agemyth Errr…. MWO has been released for I think 3 years.  They have been trying to be more responsive to their player base after a big PR snafu a bit less than a year ago.

I don’t have time to watch a 30 minute video.  So I must ask:  can I set fire to the trees?  If so, do they effect the heat of ‘mechs standing/walking through them?  And if so, how long do they burn?  I have a feeling flamers may become very useful.  =)

agemyth I would guess part of the problem  is that if the average player pc can handle the graphics load requirement and/or the potential bugs would outweigh the benefit at least in order to get the title out in a reasonable time.  If they waited to release MWO until every expectation the public has it wouldnt be released til hell froze over.

How a modern Mechwarrior game made it this long without destructible terrain is beyond me, but I’m happy to see it is finally happening. Knocking down trees and lampposts isn’t really a high priority thing in the grand list of all the things a multiplayer only Mechwarrior needs. Maybe we will be able to destroy building soon :)
