First MechAssult 2 Screens

Man the Dropships! MechAssault 2 Set for Holiday 2004 Release MechAssault moves beyond heavy metal and into the mind of the warrior as Microsoft Game Studios today announced that MechAssault 2 for Xbox® is currently in development and is scheduled to arrive on retail shelves in time for the 2004 holiday season. MechAssault 2 is being developed by Day 1 Studios, creators of the best-selling sci-fi action/shooter MechAssault for Xbox, and guarantees an entirely fresh and exciting gameplay experience for seasoned combat veterans and newcomers alike. No longer limited to life within a single BattleMech, gamers take on the role of a full-fledged human pilot, able to pick and choose from a roster of combat vehicles including Tanks, Vertical TakeOff and Landing craft (VTOLs), BattleArmor and of course, BattleMechs. The proper choice of vehicles is key to successfully completing the wide variety of missions in the game and defeating the opposition. Solo gamers will find the single-player campaign is now significantly richer; with a deeper storyline, NPC interaction and missions delivered on the fly. BattleArmor, a new and exciting addition, will make its first appearance in MechAssault 2 and play a key role in the action. BattleArmor allows gamers to become one of the deadliest weapons in the MechAssault 2 universe. More than just a protective shell, BattleArmor gives the wearer the ability to hijack enemy 'Mechs, climb buildings, tear through infantry squads and unleash pure devastation on enemy armor. BattleArmor-equipped gamers can even hitch a ride on VTOLs for a quick airborne assault on enemy positions, ensuring the world of 'Mechs will never be the same again. Xbox Live gamers will be in awe of the new features MechAssault 2 brings with it. Massive battles will be raged between teams armed to the teeth with 'Mechs, Tanks, BattleArmor and VTOLs. Online play will never be the same again, as squads of BattleArmor are dropped by VTOLs into enemy territory, leaving chaos and destruction in their wake as they 'jack enemy 'Mechs and turn defensive systems against their own clan. Xbox Live will offer MechAssault 2 players opportunities to wage war between clans and across planets like never before, while still offering popular gameplay modes from the original.
