MechWarrior Online invites you to River City

Justin Olivetti
It's important to remember that for every shell-shocked city that you're rampaging through with your 40-ton 'Mech, there are families who have lost everything in the destruction. But enough about them -- more pew pew! Welcome to MechWarrior Online's River City, where the fun never stops and the human suffering is drowned out by cheers of "PWNED!"

In a new video, Piranha Games shows off the urban battlefield of River City. It's a high-tech metropolis on fire, with hazy smoke and broken highways abounding. In the middle of River City is a fortified building, which is the high ground. Holding this will help players achieve their two objectives: a space port and an industrial port facility.

And yes, the narrator actually uses the words "River City" and "ransom" in the same sentence. There's a strange video game crossover going on here.

You can visit River City after the jump, but you probably won't want to move there.
