Dark Horizons: Mechanized Assault Vehicle is a 3rd person persistent online mech combat 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 for the genre.
Max Gaming is happy to announce that our Kickstarter campaign launched today. For those who enjoy giant robots blowing each other up, we think you wil be interested in Mechanized Assault Vehicle. This sequel to our 2005 IGF finalist Dark Horizons: Lore brings back our persistent universe with built in systems for everything guilds need to compete in Faction Wars. Please checkout our Kickstarter page and our website for more information.

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.

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.
