Battletech Deploying This April – Preorders Open

Posted on 28 Feb 2018

Highly anticipated tactical turn-based tactical game, Battletech is launching this April, additionally preorders are now live for the game, clocking in at £34.99 for the base version and £41.99 for the digital deluxe edition. After a brief hiccup on the Steam store page we’ve had official confirmation from Harebrained Schemes and Paradox Interactive that the April release window is official. Sadly we don’t have a date in April yet but our guess (please take it with a huge pinch of salt) is that it’ll be towards the end to avoid the March/early April release window that’s become so popular the last couple of years.

BATTLETECH Pre-Orders Begin Today, April Launch Marked

BATTLETECH’s Unique Combat System Detailed in New Video

STOCKHOLM – Feb. 27, 2018 – Paradox Interactive and Harebrained Schemes today announced pre-orders for BATTLETECH are now live. The first modern turn-based, tactical combat game set within the MechWarrior universe will launch this April for Windows PC and Mac.

In the first of a three-part video series, Jordan Weisman (creator of BattleTech), Mitch Gitelman (Studio Manager) and Mike McCain (Game Director) detail BATTLETECH’s unique combat system and the tactical challenges players will face commanding building-sized war machines on the battlefield. There’s also a fair amount of ‘Mech-punching, naturally.

“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.”

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 the player commands 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.

Revived Eighties IP's make me weak at the knees.

Can't wait to get my hands on a PPG.
