The folks at Activision are heading for a second turn at bat with Heavy Gear II this fall. Built on an for a second turn at bat with Heavy Gear II this fall. Built on an entirely new engine, HGII is a 3D hardware-only game that looks to take advantage of the new 3D technologies available to bring you better-looking terrain (fight in space!), realistic weather, faster action, and anime-like gears that can crawl, flank, and bust out with other cool moves. Once again there will be multiplayer support for gear get-togethers, and the minimum machine is a humble Pentium 133. Although we didn't get to see all the gears and weapons in the early version we played, it looks like Heavy Gear II could be what Activision was shooting for the first time around.
