Today, turnbased tactical mech game, BattleTech has officially been released. Developed by Harebrained Schemes, this is the first tactical turnbased Battletech/MechWarrior game in two decades.
BattleTech is the result of a highly successful Kickstarter campaign back in September of 2015. In the game, you control an outfit of Mechs and MechWarriors that pilot them in a brutal interstellar civil war. Upgrade your base of operations, negotiate mercenary contracts with feudal lords, repair, maintain, and customize your stable of BattletMechs.
“There’s a lot of love for the BattleTech / MechWarrior universe, and the entire Harebrained team feels incredibly fortunate to have had the chance to work on a tactical combat game worthy of its legacy,” said Jordan Weisman, CEO of Harebrained Schemes and creator of the MechWarrior universe and original BattleTech board game. “We hope that fans of the universe and strategy gamers in general find as much fun and excitement playing BATTLETECH as we found creating it.”
BattleTech is available on PC and Mac for $39.99 with Linux support not far behind. Earlier, our own Ron Burke wrote a very in-detail review on BattleTech. Check it out here.
