Mechwarrior fans, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that a new version of MechWarrior: Living Legends, a mod for Crysis: Wars, has been released. The bad news is that its development has been halted due to legal obligations. Version 0.7.0 includes lots of additional features, however it also comes with bugs that will not be resolved anytime soon.
Those interested can download this latest version from here.
As the development team unveiled, no longer allowed to create future content based on the MechWarrior IP due to legal obligations on behalf of various rights holders.
“These rights holders own the Legally Binding, Non-Transferrable, Non-Commercial License Agreement with Microsoft and as of 2013 will no longer officially support the MechWarrior: Living Legends division of Wandering Samurai Studios. This is not a choice of the development team, this is a choice of the ownership and we have no control over the decision-making process.”
Our guess is that Living Legends will be no longer supported in an attempt to boost the crowd of MechWarrior: Online. Or at least that’s what we make out of all this mess. And it’s sad because Living Legends and Online had two completely different gameplay styles. Online is a more slower paced title, while Living Legends is a mix between Hawken and Online.
At this point, we can only wish best of luck to all Wandering Samurai Studios’ members and a big thank you for their amazing mod!
