The trailer for Rooster Teeth’s gen:LOCK teases all the Mecha!


First announced during the RTX conference in Austin last year, Rooster Teeth’s (RWBY) new animated series is gen:LOCK. It deals with giant Mecha and you can watch the first teaser trailer below.

On the losing side of a global culture war, an Experimental Science Unit is pushed to identify a team of young pilots who can control a variety of prototype, next-generation mecha — giant, robotic, weaponised bodies. The recruits will find, however, that their newfound abilities come at no small cost.

“The story of Gen:Lock starts at the beginning of a new global culture war,” Gray Haddock, head of Rooster Teeth Animation, said. “The first episode introduces the very beginning conditions of the war, and will begin to move around a little bit. It’s not necessarily a war between nation-states, but trends that every nation-state tends to have in common—it’s not like the front lines of the war are on the borders, but it could be in the middle of a particular city. People with one set of views are done being patient with people with other views, and there’s a particular portion of the global culture that has recognized that even though they’re spread out among former nation-states, they have certain things in common, and organize to do a territory grab, so they can form new areas around the world that are very much a mono-culture representing just their views. Then you have everyone else who doesn’t agree with that perspective.”

There is no air date at the moment, but I do like the look of it.
