Here's the first video for MechWarrior Tactics that sets the stage for the game by covering when the game takes places and providing some very high level information about the design goals of the game. They don't dig too far into the gameplay or the monetization strategy for the Free to Play game but they do show off some new gameplay footage as well as some nice shots of the MechLab and a few slow rolling beauty shows from some of the levels from the game.
It' is worth nothing that mech fans have to be excited about all of the high quality (and free to play) mech games we have this year. In addition to MechWarrior Tactors, there's MechWarrior Online, and the exceedingly awesome Hawken. The nice thing is that all three games scratch very different itches.
