Description

The war between the human resistance and the evil robotic Cybrids renews! Prometheus has built a base on the moon and is producing Cybrids by the thousands. As a member of the human resistance, you pilot your HERC ('Mech) against the Cybrids. You have up to 3 wingmates. This entry in the Earthsiege series features 9 HERCS and something not found in many Mech-type games: an aircraft you can fly!

Development

Dynamix had the original contract from FASA to make MechWarrior. Then when the FASA contract expired, Dynamix was bought by Sierra Online, and FASA went to Activision for MechWarrior II. However, the guys at Dynamix wanted to continue making 'Mech games, so they started the Earthsiege series. The same thing happened with Activision, because FASA worked with MicroProse on Starsiege, and Activision started their own 'Mech series, Heavy Gear.
