Dark Horizons: MC ­ Faction Wars Part 1
Description
Welcome to Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps

Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps is a 3rd person persistent online mech game set in the Dark Horizons Universe.

Wage a futuristic war for honor, duty, fame or the all mighty dollar. Deal massive damage in taking on other players in a online persistent war in the Dark Horizons Universe.

DH: Mechanized Corps is successor to the 2005 IGF Finalst, Dark Horizons: Lore and the 2009 game Lore: Aftermath. Mechanized Corps takes the best of both its predecessors and creates a whole new level of mech action and community.

Building off the improved gameplay of Aftermath and the highly regarded Faction Wars system(COMCENT) of the 2005 IGF finalist DH: Lore, Max Gaming is aiming to put forth a fun and addictive addition to the Dark Horizons franchise.

NOTE: This game is currently in Combat Alpha testing, goto http://www.playmech.com to signup for testing.

Game Features

Faction Wars

We are bringing back our critically acclaimed Faction Wars system that made our 2005 IGF finalist game Lore - Invasion so endearing to thousands of players.

What is Factions Wars?

Faction Wars provides the backbone for our persistent online universe that allows players to work together in full on Player vs Players to fight for control of the game verse. Each battle while playing in Factions Wars counts toward the winning of sectors on the game verse map, which give player faction bonuses like:
  • Overall world control
  • In-game currency bonuses
  • Additional Battle Salvage
  • Bonus XP
Using our COMCENT interface players will be able to see whats going on in the game verse in real time. COMCENT features include:
  • Live game verse map showing the latest hot spots.
  • Live game reporting
  • Ability for players to join factions
  • Players can create or join player units which can be faction based or mercenary.
  • View the pilot statistics (Achievements, Kills, Battles won, etc...)
  • Recruit other players
  • Faction unit leaders can create mercenary contracts
  • and more to come....
Its our belief the players are the most important part of any game, and its the goal of Mechanized Assault Vehicle to provide not only a fun in-game experience but provide the players with the tools they need to enjoy the community.

Other Features

Faction Wars is one of the main features of the game and encompasses a lot, but here are a few of the other features we will support.
  • Up to 32 players per Faction wars mission (when hosted by a dedicated server), maximum 8-16 recommended for player hosted games.
  • Complete mech customization via the Lab (before and during game.
  • Equip special items such as Mines, Turrets and Counter Measures that you can deploy in the game world.
  • Multitude of mission types including: Attrition, Mini-Nuke, Raids, Siege
  • Variety of game inputs to control the game with either the standard keyboard & mouse, or utilize a Joystick or a Xbox 360 game pad to play.

NOTE: In the near future we will be supporting both Linux and Mac clients

For those whom voted for us on greenlight, here is our coming soon page http://store.steampowered.com/app/266470 . we are still in alpha and the release will look alpha but we spent a little extra time integrating some steam features for the initial release.

I'm really looking forward to the early release and am thrilled it will be available for Linux. That's how I found Lore Invasion. It was the only Mech game available for Linux and it was so full featured. I'm pleased to hear that Comcent with it's persistent universe will be returning as well. It was the heart of Lore Invasion and was what kept me coming back for the years I played it. See you on the battlefield!

We are very committed to cross platform, we are doing our best to get Windows and Linux out at same time, but there maybe a light delay. will make sure we are transparent. BUT, we will definetly be launching on SteamOS and Linux very early in earlyaccess.
