Last week we gave you our first impressions of the MechWarrior Online closed beta and we also held a closed beta key giveaway. For those of you poor souls who weren’t able to get a beta key you are in luck. In less than a week Piranha games will be opening up MechWarrior Online to the public with the start of the open beta.
The game just recently received its last large patch before open beta which added graphical improvements, new particle effects, and other UI tweaks among other things. With the launch of the open beta, the mech warfare simulator will get its first set of cosmetic customization options that include exterior camo skins, interior cockpit items (fuzzy dice and bobble hula girl confirmed!), and decals.
The decals might actually be one of the cooler cosmetic items since its hinted that players will be able to create their own art to display on their mech. Finally my MS-Paint skills will come in use! Fear my poorly drawn stick figures!
