From PC game 'MechWarrior Online'.
The wait for the next iteration of the long-standing MechWarrior computer game franchise is over.
Game developer Pihrana Games and publishing company Infinite Game Publishing have jointly launched the free-to-play MechWarrior Online after many months of beta testing.
"This is an extremely exciting day for everyone at Piranha," said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. "Our official launch comes on the heels of a successful Open Beta development period. Our passionate fans were with us every step of the way helping us create the most ambitious MechWarrior game yet."
Set in the year 3050 during the early stages of a massive interstellar war, MechWarrior Online puts you in command of the most powerful war machine to ever walk the field of battle, the mighty BattleMech. Pilot your 'Mech and customize it to suit your preferred battlefield role; upgrade systems, weapons, and armor with endless options giving you creative control over your battle strategy as you face your next opponent. MechWarrior Online is set to deliver a rich online experience, rewarding everything a player does with experience points, C-Bills, unlocks, and recognition.
Bullock continued, "Our official launch is a jumping off point for a continuous stream of meaningful content updates to the game. We are looking forward to implementing the next round of major features for our pilots, including an entire new interface, new pilot tutorials, new Mechs and Maps and the long-awaited Community Warfare pillar. This is only the beginning. There is no final product."
