New Video Details Mercenary Life in BATTLETECH



Click on the Headline for the Video.

STOCKHOLM - Mar. 14, 2018 - Paradox Interactive and Harebrained Schemes today released the next installment in their behind-the-scenes BATTLETECH video series.

In BATTLETECH, players take the role of the commander of a mercenary company. This new video details the systems that helps commanders stay afloat, and perhaps prosper, at the edge of civilized space. Jordan Weisman (creator of BattleTech), Mitch Gitelman (Studio Manager) and Mike McCain (Game Director) walk through everything from taking missions, managing your crew, upgrading `Mechs, and getting the money that pays for it all.

BATTLETECH, the first modern turn-based, tactical combat game set within the MechWarrior universe, will launch this April on Steam for Windows PC and Mac, with Linux to be added post-release.

The year is 3025 and the galaxy is trapped in a cycle of perpetual war, fought by noble houses with enormous, mechanized combat vehicles called BattleMechs. From their starfaring base of operations, players command a mercenary outfit of `Mechs and the MechWarriors who pilot them, struggling to stay afloat as they are drawn into a brutal interstellar civil war.

Oh man so glad I backed this up before Kickstarter turned into more of a shitshow than it already was.

Glad I back this. Meant to try beta but never got around to it before it was over. Hope it is as much fun as it looks.

The fact that it's turn based has me intrigued. RTS pisses me off (click click click click faster click click click) but turn based I can get into.

There really should be more turn based games overall.

I've backed every HBS game. Haven't been disappointed.
