From Paradox Interactive and Harebrained Schemes, Battletech will see the world of MechWarrior enter the turn-based strategy realm of XCOM when it launches in April. And if that sentence doesn't get you excited then perhaps you yourself might be a robot. In need of a pilot. New trailer after the jump.
Even though April is a month of so away, we don't have a specific date other than the knowledge that Battletech will be coming sometime then for Windows PC and Mac. And to bring you up to speed with the game we've got the first part in a new video series detailing what it means to control a mech in a turn-based battlefield.
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.
“BATTLETECH has been a passion project for our team and for the fans who helped to make it a reality. We have done our very best to deliver a tactical `Mech experience that will delight long-time fans and excite new players who have yet to enter the MechWarrior universe.” said Jordan Weisman, CEO of Harebrained Schemes and creator of the original board game and BATTLETECH universe.”We know players are anxious to get their hands on the final game, and HBS joins Paradox in our excitement to deliver this April.”
Pre-orders are also now open. For more info, head here.
