New MechWarrior Online Gameplay Trailer Introduces the Centurion

Piranha Games published today a new trailer to introduce one of the Battlemechs that will be available on MechWarrior Online when it’ll launch later this year: the CN9-A Centurion.

The Centurion has always been one of my favorite Mechs, with a very versatile loadout: 8.5 tons of StarGuard III armor, one Autocannon/10, one LRM-10, and two Medium Lasers. It also has a Nissan engine (not joking here), which never hurts. Wonder if they salvaged that from a GTR…

The video also introduces the CN9-AH variant, that loses the Autocannon/10 and the medium lasers for a massive Autiocannon/ 20, making it a little less versatile but deadly at short range.

Finally, the CN9-AL variant makes the Centurion less ammo dependant, removing the Autocannon and replacing it with a Large Laser and a Medium Laser. It also sports more heat sinks for better heat management and eleven tons of armor for better survivability.

You can check out the video below for the full introduction and almost two minutes of sweet gameplay footage.
