From MekTek Site..
Finally, the long awaited moment has arrived!
Studio MekTek, in association with Smith and Tinker, INC., Virtual World Entertainment, LLC, Catalyst Game Labs, and Microsoft Games, is happy to announce the release of Mechwarrior4 Free.
Assault Tech 1: Battletech, or AT1:BT for short and as better known, is an independent, non commercial Activision’s MechWarrior 2 series remake using a more advanced DirectX 7 graphics engine, BlitzBasic’s Blitz3D ( Blitzbasic.com )
Not only it includes aspects from the classic game, but combines the best gameplay details from the three most popular MechWarrior games (Mechwarrior 2/3/4) as well as it implements new Classic Battletech rules that were long awaited by most die-hard Battletech fans, and looks forward to include even more control over other types of units aside from the well known ‘Mechs.
Like in the classic game, the storyline-timeline is based around the refusal war between the Clan Jade Falcon and Clan Wolf and also currently including its post-war expansion: Ghost Bear’s Legacy.
Its been awhile since we last updated you on the status of the free release of MechWarrior 4 so we felt the need to assure everyone that the time is nearing. We had hoped to release the free title the last weekend of summer but that unfortunately did not happen due to paperwork.
As previously mentioned, I indicated that there are still a number issues to resolve before the free release. Those issues are resolving thanks to the hard work of many at MekTek. From a development stand point the free release is near ready to go but we are still waiting to resolve some of the legalities associated with such a wide distribution. While we have not provided a set date for the release, we are still on target, and our partners are happy with the progress MekTek has been making.
Our focus on the strongfree/strong release has been revamping our match making service MekMatch in order to accommodate many more users. In addition to the work being conducted on the MechWarrior 4 strongfree/strong release, we are also working on a community software distribution and patching application which we have been alluding to on our forums. This software is known as MekTek X (or simply MTX). X stands for the last decade of service to the MechWarrior community.
Metal Rage is a Mechanic Third Person Shooter online action game.
Metal Rage is based in the 2070’s. It is a time when technology has developed and humankinds have landed on the moon. There is a power struggle completely different from the present, and the power struggle between three forces to maintain their rights and controls have spread to the ends of the earth.
The cityscape-turned-ruins maps, with volatile quietness of battle field and depressed outlooks of near future, send the tension of battlefield to the users.
Cutting edge units such as observers, repairers, and engineer units appear in the game.
Metal Rage can be played by up to 32 players in one room. It offers various types of game modes such as death-match, sudden death, siege, capture the flag, explosion, and boss missions. More fun single player mode campaigns, with different levels of difficulty and modes will offer players a taste of the excitement. Team up with your Metal Rage friends to eliminate AI opponents and complete the missions.
