Battletech story trailer released, here are the basics
BATTLETECH will be released on 24 April and a new story trailer helps set the scene.
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.
Since the Harebrained Schemes Kickstarter for the game, BATTLETECH has been quite the rollercoaster. And Harebrained Schemes is hoping that despite the ups and downs, that they can deliver on an engaging and fun title for fans and new players alike.
“It’s a wonderful way to get a true, classic Battletech story,” says Weisman. “This really opens it up for the player to extend their own story of their mercenary unit, in whichever direction they want to go.”
The game focuses on letting the player run a merc company that’s caught in the middle of a massive conflict between warring noble houses. And it’s up to you to decide how that war will play out on a galactic scale.
You can pre-order the game on Steam now for $39.99. BATTLETECH releases on April 24.
