It's been turbulent times and the team would like to apologize for the delay of this update. As for the past weeks, we'd like to start this update by saying that big things are already casting big shadows and we're just as impatiently awaiting their announcement as you guys hopefully are. For this week's update, we've got four variants of the Atlas and a status update on the Solaris Arena map Sandblasted. Once more, however, we'd like to draw your attention to the playtest impressions. The vigilant observer should notice at least two unfamiliar things in these. We're really looking forward to see how many of you actually discover them.
Four variants: Inner Sphere Atlas
Probably one of the most iconic Mechs in the battletech universe and certain to cause fear on the battlefield in those who oppose him, the team of MechWarrior: Living Legends presents to you the four variants of the Inner Sphere's Assault Mech Atlas. This monster, weighing no less than 100 tons, will be playable in the first MWLL release in the four versions shown on the screenshot below.
A status update on this desert/egyptian-themed map that, judging by overall reactions to earlier screenshots, seems to be quite popular: SA_Sandblasted has seen various improvements in the past few weeks. The three panorama shots below document what the very same location looks like in various stages of the established cycle of day and night. The two additional screenshots show one of the new assets that can be found on this map, huge pillars, strong and big enough to allow battlearmor to take cover behind them.
Again, here are a few pictures from this week's playtest.
