Firstly I'd like to apologize for my lengthy absence, college is starting back up and that's gotten my schedule in a real mess these past few days but not so thrown out of shape that I've missed the news about Battletech. For those of you who don't know I've been following this game for a very long time and have always kept an eye out for new information, be it lore based or more about the gameplay mechanics.
On August 4th an update went up on the Kickstarter page (Backers only I'm afraid, but thanks to that one Redditor who posted the information for all to see) that detailed the combat system that the game would have, including a 20 minute video that showed what the game looked like as of today, shown above. And I have to say, it looks and sounds pretty good as of now. Remember that for the initial kickstarter campaign, Harebrained Studios asked for 250,000 USD and raised 2.8 MILLION by the end of the month, there are a lot of people who are excited for this project.
