Amateur and veteran MechWarrior Online pilots have a new secret weapon in their arsenal today as Infinite Game Publishing and Piranha Games published a brand-new Penny Arcade original comic guide, “Pilot Safety Information” today at http://mwomercs.com/pennyarcade.
Inspired by those infamous “back of the airplane seat” safety instructions, this custom two-page guide reveals five crucial tips for MechWarrior pilots, including illustrated examples of how to avoid laser fire mishaps while properly managing the Mech’s heat levels, throttle controls and torso-twist maneuverability.
“I used to play BattleTech at lunch, when I was in high school," said Penny Arcade's Jerry Holkins. "There's a lot of meat in MechWarrior Online, a lot to know, and we wanted to see if we could cover some of the basics in a way that could help people get the most out of it."
Piranha Games Creative Director Bryan Ekman said, “Piloting a giant Mech is an entirely new experience for most gamers requiring thought, balance and team strategy. First time players are often surprised when typical shooter tactics such as ‘shoot first, think later’ get them into trouble. The team at Penny Arcade, admittedly lifelong MechWarrior franchise fans, has crafted a superbly informative and funny comic that players will truly appreciate.”
