this has got to be one of the best intro cinematics for a game

2018, and this is the best cinematic they can come out with?

This is one of the best intro cinematic I've seen tbh. Artistic, tells the story, true to the lore, and great music.

...would you rather they spend all that Kickstarter money on the intro cinematic or the playable part of the game?

Essa é a melhor abertura de jogo que eu já vi. Uma obra prima. Uma narrativa sem palavras lindamente orquestrada pela música do Jon Everist. Emocionante.

This track and the cinematic had me goosbumped and hooked from the first second. Way to set a mood. Just perfect.

In some ways, Mankind in Battletech is worse than their counterparts in 40k. Yes, their atrocities are different by several orders of magnitude, but think about it. There are no Chaos Gods or literal Space Hell corrupting them. Their FTL is shit but mostly safe. Intergalactic communication does not require child sacrifice. There are no aliens that are impossible reason with.

They were given hundreds of worlds right next to Terra, and they squandered them by carrying humanity's blood soaked past into the future. They have no excuse. Nicolas Kerensky was right about at least one thing; humanity is a creature of war, first and always.

And these people call clanners barbaric.

There's one BIG moment missing from the intro. I think it would have been great to see the SLDF jumping into the unknown at the end but that would probably confuse a lot of new players. At least HBS includes references to the Exodus in the tooltips.

Catalyst Game Labs will squander all the interest in BT this game generates, I guarantee it.

Sadly, the tabletop games have always been a smaller niche, compared to the games (and even the novels). They are pricey to get into, require skills at assembly and painting (my major barrier haha), and you need other people to actually play (which even for more popular games varies widely depending on where you live).

So far there's no other game has better intro than this one..

Sensational music. Really love the oboe section from about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

this is just epic ... playing for 24 years now and no intro ever caught me like that. Normally i watch into one time then skip it as soon as possible ... this intro ... i got to force myself to skip evertime and not watch it till the end.

For the Game itself: its too easy for MW Veterans ... and too less tactical ... heavyest lance always wins ... would wish myself more diversity here

I feel like I disagree (about the game play, not the music. The music is amazing). . This game does a much much better job of capturing the feel of actual Battletech than any other video game that isn't MekWars. In SP the AI isn't good enough to exploit it's strengths so its not that hard to beat heavy odds with a smaller lance. In MP everyone has the same resources and in the 25m bracket I think 4 mediums can usually beat a lance that relies on heavies or assaults because of how the initiative phases work.

You can thank EA and Activision for my refusal to pre-order games anymore.

Love the symbolism behind the dawn, zenith, and sunset of the Sun juxtaposed with the rise and fall of the Star League.

Why no narration though....feels cheap.

phooogle It's called visual storytelling

7 months ago

I feel like Battletech does something none of the other games have: Actually give the setting a clear sense of style and feel. The way the setting is usually presented in other sources tends to feel very dry and makes it hard to care about, so all you usually get left with is "This is about big robots fighting." In a way the problem is that the Battletech universe is almost too much like real history. There's a lot of it, it's largely political, and it's hard to follow because there's not as strong of a grand narrative as there is in other well established scifi settings, like 40k. This game does a good job of setting up right away that this is a story about a society much like ours but with space feudalism and giant robots. The story is about feuding nobles and the people caught in the crossfire, not unlike Game of Thrones.

The only intro cinematic of any game to give me goosebumps like this - by far. I love the symbolism of the rising and setting sun over the horizon as seen from space. The birth of the Star League and how it descended into war.

I remember quite fondly my first exposure to the BT universe, in Walmart looking up at a game demo screen for Mechwarrior 3 in 1999. Little did I know how much it would captivate me and the joy it would bring.

Suitably epic. People just don't know how full of history the Battletech Universe really is. At one point there was more written of Battletech than there was of Star Wars.

I eagerly await the glorious return of the Crusader Clans so that they may attempt to fix the horrible mess that the Spheroid surats have caused.

Best game I've had in years.

At 1:20 is that a Texas class WarShip? It's got the two ...sticky-up-bits that the older art has. Also we see a ship crashing into a planet at 1:44. Could that have been the planet Devin?

7 months ago

As I commented elsewhere, I believe it's SLS Nebraska, which was a Texas class. My guess on the other one agrees that it might be on Devin.

KANE LIVES!!!! Just because they felt like it......or it was the light from the monitors reflecting off his eyes. Either way, why would you ask..just curious.

I am aware of what Aerotech is.

Beau74 I meant to say aerotech, which is the aerospace sister game of battltech =/

7 months ago

Um no, considering it's engaged in air combat that would almost certainly be an aerospace fighter.

such a good intro. Brings back Civilization Baba Yetu intro feels again. I dont know who made the story board of this intro but you sir/maam are a god in storytelling.

I'm glad they set this game in 3025. I'd really like to see a game that focuses on the Star League era. Even more so just from watching this intro (which I never skip when I start the game). It's always Clans, Clans, Clans. The Clans aren't even that interesting or impressive. But the Star League era, or even the Succession Wars... There's a LOT that could be done there that's actually fresh and new. The Reunification War. The Amaris Civil War. Any of the first 3 Succession Wars. Plus there's still so much open about that time period that they could do like what was done with this game and even add something totally new.

I know the Clans are all but an inevitable outcome. But man is it boring to see that done over and over again when there is soooo much of the Battletech world that gets ignored.

7 months ago

Kinda hard to do a game based on the early Succession Wars....you build up your unit or character, and then nukes fall, you die.

4 months ago

They could go for the stuff after the Clan Invasions, too, like the Fed-Com Civil War, WoB Jihad, etc.

7 months ago

Totally agree. Fortunately for us, Jordan Weisman isnt a big fan of the whole 'clans returning+being OP as fuck' bit of the story, so we should see plenty of the other parts of the storyline besides that.

This game is awesome fun, with plenty of depth

This was great

one thing I love about this MechWarrior history is how (relatively) plausible it is. if we ever do colonize the galaxy, it could totally be like that: expansion on a scale never before seen that is doomed to collapse and fracture.

7 months ago

So basically: Humanity advanced, spread among the stars, created a flourishing empire, and then it all went to shit. :/

+pendraco2000 best part of hanseatic league: they fought of 3 clans invasions alone. 3 CLANS!

1 month ago

that's the Inner Sphere in a nutshell. it should be noted however, that other than the Clans and Inner Sphere, humans are actually spread even farther out, between lost and forgotten colonies, Black sites, etc.

Clans aren't even the only large Deep Periphery State, there's the Hanseatic League, for one.

They need to do one of these for Warhammer 40k.

This blew me away. Great intro to the Battletech universe--highlights the history without the need for narration.

Whoever drew this one up should be proud.

I love this cinematic. In just a tiny space of time the entire background for the BattleTech/MechWarrior setting is laid out in a beautiful, artistic, and poignant manner. Of course they miss a few things—the Age of War for one—but hey, they cover the parts that are actually important.

Now if only the JumpShips didn't flash like that; they just blink in an out, no light show. Ah, well, artistic license, and a fanatic like me can't have it all my own way. Love this all the same. Loving the game, too, even if it seems to be rather un-optimized and there's that one absolutely BS story mission that has impossible secondaries but otherwise GG, man.
