As we wait for part 2 of the persistence update we thought it would be nice to share some of the things coming together for the Steam early access release.

First, always love to show off the new looks you can have with our new paint jobs etc… What we have added to the mech painter are the ability to paint different sections of the mechs multiple colors and an exciting new grunge feature which lets you weather you mech with battle damage!! As normal you can also choose from dozens of decals and insignia to personalize you mech.

Second is our integration progress with Steam we would like to preview the layout of your new menu system which we are designing to work well with Steam big picture mode as well as set it up to work with gamepads. We also now have the game authenticating with Steam and our multi-player backend!! (NOTE: Forgive our programmer art)

Coming next to our Steam integration and the final steps before launching into EarlyAccess is stats, leaderboards, achievements, and cloud storage for local content.
