Dark Horizons: Mechanized Assault Vehicle is a 3rd person persistent online mech game set in the Dark Horizons Universe. Successor to the 2004 game Dark Horizons: Lore and the 2009 game Lore: Aftermath, Mechanized Assault Vehicle takes the best of both its predecessors and creates a whole new level of mech action and community.
The Mechanized Assault Vehicle has evolved into massive mecha that no longer are piloted remotely, but now house a new breed of warrior in the cockpit. Ranging from 25 to 80 tons and walking mayhem, Mechanized Assault Vehicles can be configured with a variety of weapons and ordinance to accomplish its mission goals.
You have several way to customize your Mechanized Assault Vehicle icluding:
In Mechanized Assault Vehicle 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:
Using our COMCENT interface players will be able to see whats going on in the game verse in real time. COMCENT features include:
Faction Wars is one of the main features of the game and encompasses a lot, but here are a few of the other features Mechanized Assault Vehicle supports.
NOTE: Currently the game only runs on Windows. Mac and Linux are on the road map.
Mechanized Assault Vehicle is still determining how the game will be sold, whether it will be free to play or a one time purchase.
Version alpha 220.127.116.11
Here is some information straight from the Mechanized Assault Vehicle Kickstarter page.
Ok so lets get this part out of the way. Why are we here reaching out to the community? Currently Max Gaming is working on bringing DH: Mechanized Assault to life in between contracts and in our spare time. Though we are making great progress, we really want to be able to accelerate our work and get the persistent world online for people to enjoy.
The main goal of this Kickstarter is to bring back what made our 2005 IGF finalist Dark Horizons: Lore so popular with its player, Faction Wars.
Faction Wars is our persistent universe that allows players to work together in pure Player vs Player combat to create a ever changing balance of power in the online universe.
Original Faction Wars features:
But we are not only looking to re-implement the old system, but to make additional improvements in its offering including:
In addition to Faction Wars, we felt we needed a whole new story behind the universe and are working closely with Arc Dream Publishing to create an all new mythos for this part of the Dark Horizons Universe timeline.
