Description

From original BattleTech/MechWarrior creator Jordan Weisman and the developers of the award-winning Shadowrun Returns series comes the next-generation of turn-based tactical ‘Mech combat.

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. Take command of your own mercenary outfit of `Mechs and the MechWarriors that pilot them, struggling to stay afloat as you find yourself drawn into a brutal interstellar civil war. Upgrade your starfaring base of operations, negotiate mercenary contracts with feudal lords, repair and maintain your stable of aging BattleMechs, and execute devastating combat tactics to defeat your enemies on the battlefield.

COMMAND A SQUAD OF `MECHS IN TURN-BASED COMBAT:

  • Deploy over 30 BattleMechs in a wide variety of combinations. Use terrain, positioning, weapon selection and special abilities to outmaneuver and outplay your opponents.

MANAGE YOUR MERCENARY COMPANY:

  • Recruit, customize, and develop unique MechWarriors. Improve and customize your dropship. As a Mercenary, travel a wide stretch of space, taking missions and managing your reputation with a variety of noble houses and local factions.

TAKE PART IN A DESPERATE CIVIL WAR:

  • Immerse yourself in the story of a violently deposed ruler, waging a brutal war to take back her throne with the support of your ragtag mercenary company.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR `MECHS:

  • Use your MechLab to maintain and upgrade your units, replacing damaged weapon systems with battlefield salvage taken from fallen foes.

PVP MULTIPLAYER & SKIRMISH MODE:

  • Customize a Lance of ‘Mechs and MechWarriors to go head-to-head with your friends, compete against match-made opponents online, or jump into single-player skirmish mode to test your strategies against the AI.

  1. High learning curve
    by Scott Henderson, USA - Aug 14th 2018

    I normally wait until I have completely finished playing a game before writing a review, but with BattleTech, that might take some time. The game world is huge. One can create custom 'Mechs and Lances (group of 'Mechs) to go on Skirmishes and fight head to head against other players online. Then there is the Campaign version which I've just started playing. That interweaves a story arc through various planned skirmishes and requires more time to invest in building, planning and surviving in the BattleTech universe.

    Universally, the main complaint I've seen about (and have with) the game is the lack of any kind of help system or decent tutorial. The game has a very high learning curve. A manual for the beta version of the game can be found here...

    The UI elements are numerous and complex until you read about how to use and take advantage of them. Watching a lot of videos and reading many Steam articles has gotten me to the point that I actually understand what is going on during a battle and how to best use the information to my advantage. Playing a number of Skirmish battles before tackling the Campaign mode is also beneficial. Campaign mode has some questionable language in the dialog, so if "religious exclamations" bother you as they do me, be forewarned.

    OK, but is it fun to play? Yes, once you have an idea of what to expect, the game is quite fun. This is not XCOM with mech warriors though. Gameplay is completely different, so investing the time to learn about the game is necessary. All in all, this is a vast game with many, many elements that could occupy one's spare time for years to come. Well worth the investment of money and time.
