With our most recent development update we are pleased to announce that we finally managed to make the long waited for “Upgrade Crates” work in Mechwarrior : Living Legends!
Each weapon can now be upgraded in 2 levels. To understand how the upgrade works we will take a look at the PPC and how the upgrades will effect it’s performance. We have split the upgrades into 3 levels called Normal (stock weapon, no upgrades), Boost (you picked up a single crate) and Power (you collected the second crate). Each powerup adds new unique feature to every weapon. As we are looking at the PPC those would be:
Normal : No upgrades, stock weapon with regular damage and stats.
Boost : First upgrade, adds 25% additional range plus a 10% increased explosion radius.
Power : Second upgrade, adds 15% additional damage and 15% increase projectile speed.
As mentioned these are unique powerups to this weapon. Other weapons will have different power up effects but the names are the same. These won’t be explained but feel free to discuss it with others on the forums! In addition to this we also removed heat management from the game. We figured having heat with a power upped weapon would be useless and not necessary anymore.
This release is scheduled within the next few hours. Your Auto updater will install these release updates for you the next time you start it or when the MWLL Launcher discovers the new update.
UPDATE: This was indeed an April Fools joke. Rest assured we have nothing like this planned
