Mechwarrior 4 stress test
Microsoft have released a multiplayer test version of the latest installment in the popular mecha combat series
It's not a demo, but it's the next best thing for fans of the long-running Mechwarrior series, which puts you in the pilot's seat of a 40 foot high armoured war machine. Microsoft have launched a "multiplayer stress test" for the forthcoming mecha combat game "Mechwarrior 4 : Vengeance", starting tonight and running through until November 7th. The test is open to the public, and you can grab the necessary files from the Mechwarrior 4 website. Included are four fully customisable mechs to pilot and a single multiplayer map to drive them around on, with several game modes to choose from - Attrition, Destruction, King of the Hill, Capture the Flag, and Steal the Beacon, as well as the standard individual and team deathmatch options.
