Mechwarrior Going Free-To-Play

The Mechwarrior franchise has lain dormant for many years, until now. This proud series is coming back, and it’s coming back free-to-play. Called Mechwarrior Online, this new game will be out late next year.

I’m sure some will be disappointed that this new game isn’t more… “hardcore,” but you’re just going to have to deal with it. This is the game that we are going to be given, and we’re going to have to be happy with that. Sorry.

Though it’s going to be a while before the game will be officially released, you can probably safely bet that it will have a beta at some point next year, so you won’t have to wait so effing long to get your mech on. And we’ll be sure to let you know when that happens.

Piranha Games is the developer, and Infinite Game Publishing is the publisher.

All we’ve been shown is a short video two years ago and some concept art. There’s no way to tell whether the game will be “hardcore” or not.
