everything I know of the battletech universe comes from wiki synopsis' and tvtropes. But if it has a narrative it sounds like it's after one of the wolves dragoons many purges where they pissed too many people off at one time. "hide and rebuild, and kick ass for a few centuries before everyone kills us again"

completely taken by surprise on this. I'll be watching for more.

Edit: ohhh right the online guys. blehhhhh. still, if it has an offline component, mechs are my jam.

This one is strictly offline, the online variant will be what it is...

Looks interesting. Need to see more with the cockpits and how it plays, but looks promising.

For Battletech fans out there (or those looking to get into the lore), Amazon has a lot of the old Battletech novels on eBooks. They actually hold up really well.

I'm loving the turn based Battletech game by Hairbrained as well.
