First developer diary for MechWarrior Online released

The folks over at Pirahna games have released the first developer diary for MechWarrior Online which covers the four main design pillars for the game:
  1.  Mech combat - Giant robots fighting each other and blowing each other up
  2.  Information warfare - Combat is now line of sight/Lance dependent so no more targeting and shooting over terrain without help from a team member
  3.  Role Warfare - every mech is important and it's not just an arms race to get a 100 ton Atlus mech, smaller mechs play a key role in the game (see #2 above)
  4.  Community Warfare - allowing people to play against each other and share it socially
There's not a lot of new footage here but it does show off how gorgeous the game is.  Here's the full thing so you can get more detail on this awesome looking game.
