Get ready to do the jobs that an army can’t be seen doing. The dirty, horrific jobs that only a Mercenary can do. The next-generation of Battletech combat is coming, and you play the commander of a mercenary company on the edges of civilized space. Keep your team happy, and your operations prosperous, and seize victory where nobody else can. The game’s story features the player falling in with the deposed ruler of a noble house and, fighting for either coin or cause, becoming a player in her bid to retake her throne. BATTLETECH will be available for PC and Mac, at a suggested retail price of $39.99. Linux will be added post-launch.
“That is within the context of your larger campaign, of reputation building and working for all the different houses… It’s a wonderful way to get a true, classic BATTLETECH story,” said Jordan Weisman, CEO of Harebrained Schemes and creator the MechWarrior and BATTLETECH universe. “This really opens it up for the player to extend their own story of their mercenary unit, in whichever direction they want to go.”
“It’s knights and nobility, except instead of knights, it’s giant war machines,” said Mike McCain, game director of BATTLETECH.
