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.

https://mw5mercs.com/news/2019/07/9-development-update


Community Pre-order pilots will be able to access the Closed Beta to access practice missions in November, prior to the game’s full launch.
Our partnership with Epic Games store allows us the opportunity to make sure MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries meets our internal goal of creating the best MechWarrior game possible.

Fans looking to obtain refunds from their pre-order of any tier are able to do so by September 1st. Pre-order refunds of any tier will be refunded in full. Additionally, those seeking refunds will be able to keep all bonus MechWarrior Online content from the Standard, Collector and Ultimate Editions of the pre-order, which amount to $100, $180, and $300 dollars worth of in-game currency and content for MechWarrior Online including all bonus items like XP, premium time, badges, decals, cockpit items and more, depending on which pre-order tier purchased.

However, refunded pre-orders will forfeit their access to the full game and be unable to participate in the upcoming closed beta for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, now scheduled for November as well as lose the exclusive MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries DLC items.

Meh, I'm a huge Mech (Battletech) fan, but I'll wait and see.

My Xbox gamer pic is still a Mech from day 1. I'm not changing it until I get some mech goodness (and even then probably not).
