Day 1 announces new mech combat title

FEAR 3 developer Day 1 Studios has revealed their next; the return to their roots, as they teased some days ago, is Reign of Thunder, a third-person free-to-play mech combat game.

A gameplay trailer accompanies the announcement, complete with lightning. Catch that below this quote from creative director TJ Wagner:

“Combining the customization and RPG elements of the early MechWarrior PC and board games with the fast paced arcade action of the MechAssault series and making it all Free-to-Play is an exciting opportunity to be part of.

“I’m dying to get Thunder in the hands of new and old Mech pilots alike and battle it out. The best part is that time is very, very near.”
