From Press Release:

Piranha Games has unleashed almost three entire minutes of brand new, eye-popping footage for the upcoming MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries (PC, December 2018).

A lengthy peek at the latest state of development since December, the March video development showcase reveals an intricate new level of graphical detail in several new biomes and shows off new particle effects, damage physics and TONS OF FREAKING LASERS. 

The first standalone single-player MechWarrior title in development for PC in nearly 15 years, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will feature intense PvE ‘Mech combat in an immersive, career-based Mercenary campaign driven by player choice. The title will also feature extensive modding via Steam Workshop and a co-op mode.

Featuring an advancing timeline starting in the year 3015, players will adopt the role of a green MechWarrior mercenary thrust into combat as the Third Succession War continues to fracture the Inner Sphere; the vast region of colonized space surrounding Earth. Victory, prestige, and profit will not only require skill on the battlefield, but in the maintenance and enhancement of your BattleMechs.
