Battletech – Mercenary Life Trailer

Posted on 14 Mar 2018

In Battletech you’ll be taking on the role of a mercenary company commander, not just commanding your lance of mechs but also you’ll have to choose what missions to take, manage your crew, finances, upgrades, morale, and probably even the times your crew is allowed to go to the toilet.

Battletech is launching in April so now might be the time to decide whether your allegiance is to one of the Houses (Marik can suck it!) or to your mercany band’s bottom line.

Official Press Release

New Video Details Mercenary Life in BATTLETECH

Learn How to Manage Your Crew, Upgrade Your `Mechs, Make Money and More!

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.
