    Harebrained Schemes still aren't ready to announce a new date for the recently delayed BattleTech backer beta. To tide us over in the meantime, they've published a new Kickstarter update with a fresh batch of screenshots from their current build. Since the Codex loves eye candy (and arguing about eye candy), I figured I'd post them here to cap off what's been a very busy day:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    On behalf of the whole team, thank you for the overwhelming show of support and positive energy we received after our last update. We deeply appreciate it. When you’re flying full-throttle down the Death Star trench with turbo-lasers blazing past your cockpit and the exhaust port coming up fast, it’s nice to know that “The Backers are with you.”

    No update on our Backer Beta timing yet - we’re stepping back to make sure our plan is solid, our team is working at a healthy pace, and we have the right level of internal testing before releasing it into the wilds of Backerdom. As many of you have speculated, it’s unlikely we’ll announce a new date until we’re very confident we will hit it.

    In the interim, we thought we'd show some new screenshots of the game in action to help tide everyone over. These are unedited shots - though we did turn off the interface and use a debug camera in-game to get the pretty we wanted. You can click on the images to get a hi-res version for each. Hope you enjoy!
    You may also be interested in this BattleTech "MIDI mood piece" by Harebrained composer John Everist, spotted earlier by Codex BattleTech watcher Taka-Haradin puolipeikko. Apparently it's to be the first in a series of videos offering a behind-the-scenes look at the production of the game's soundtrack.

    Looking great, a big step from shadowrun games.

    I hope they can continue making games and see in the future another shadowrun with a biggest scope.

    So I've been kinda out of the loop on this one.

    I thought we all wanted a good turn-based Battletech game, where 'good' relates to the implementation of the mechanics, mission design, possibly some rudimentary RPG elements; I'd hope for a good multiplayer client but have no idea if it's planned.

    Now I see there was some shitstorm about the colors of the pilots' skin.

    What the fuck happened? Who cares about shit like this? Good line of sight calculation is what counts. Implementing targeting of specific mech components is what counts. And so on. What's so important about the colors of character models?

    The Inner Sphere isn't the Imperium, There are loads of non-white people. It would not be that surprising to have a crew of different races.

    Funny how "diversity" suddenly becomes unimportant to a libshit cuck when everyone has dark skin, dark hair and dark eyes and is obviously not white like in this game.

    The white people with blonde hair are way too faggy to get into mechs man. They must send people with at least dark hair to do the job.

    In any case, game looks very cool, every update is looking better and better

    I just consulted the screenshots again. My astute sense of perception tells me that they depict giant mechs in combat across a variety of landscapes. I honestly don't see the pilots' skin color anywhere. Is it hidden in some menu just to piss you people off? Remember that if the horribly evil game tells you your pilot is black, desperately trying to ruin your fun, then since the pilot is not visible in combat, you can just depict a 1'90 blond aryan male sitting in the cockpit with the maneuvering sticks firmly controlled by his arse, if that's what you prefer.

    It's a little bit more than that and not everyone who doesn't like SJW garbage is a racist. If you would have read the back stories of pilots (which were retarded beynod belief and designed to just push some retarded agenda down your throat for no reason) you would understand what we are talking about. It's that not they are colored is that there is not a single white person on the whole fucking roster. Not a fucking token white pilot. And there are also cutscenes and etc.

    And you know it would be fine IF most of the population playing their fucking games wouldn't be white (my guess). So if the company wants to upset majority of their paying customers just cause, it's fine, but I won't pay for that.

    If this turns out to be a solid tactical combat game and it gets reviewbombed by 'tards because "no token white guy" then I'm blaming you oldmanpaco

    Some of that crew ancestry was fucking weird, like egypto-irish, finnish-hawaiian swedish-japanese or whatever. Really stood out on account of how out of the way they want to trace ancestry like that.

    The only SJWs I see here are the people butthurt for the supposed lack of white people in the game. Fighting for the just/balanced depiction of all races is what SJWs do, right?
    Or is it that you want 90% all white pilots and a couple of darker skinned ones for the laughs? Then you fall into another retarded category.
    A simple solution is to not care about the skin colour of the pilots of the mechs in a game but I guess that's too much... so lets rage! :argh:

    Your love for SJWism and libtards is showing again.

    Here you go. White genocide and race-mixing fantasies HBS style.

    No retard I am not like you dumb fucks, because I don't fight or fucking pretend to fight for a greater cause. I just want to pick a fucking white pilot from the fucking roster. In other words I am a customer and I am ordering a fucking meal in the restaurant. Not pushing retarded agenda like you dumb fucks.

    Politics aside, it's impressive how HBS's artists put inXile's to shame, even with their heavy use of college interns. :)
