Piranha Games is on the cusp of reviving the long-dormant Mechwarrior franchise with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, which comes out tomorrow exclusively on the Epic Games Store. The launch trailer introduces the tagline "get beaten, get better, get even." I've been playing the game for the past week and my experience has been "get beaten, get an eye-watering repair invoice for your mangled mech," so I guess your mileage may vary. Stay tuned for my full review.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Launch Trailer Unleashes Carnage and Destruction
Get Beaten, Get Better, Get Even
VANCOUVER (Dec.5, 2019) - Developer Piranha Games today unleashed the MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries launch trailer today ahead of the game's December 10th launch. Showcasing incredible carnage, fiery rockets and trademark giant 'Mech on 'Mech destructive combat, fans just have five short days to wait until they can strap in to the cockpit and get locked on targets. Fans looking to preorder can still do so at www.mw5mercs.com.
Featuring expansively destructible environments, pilots can tear through structures while swatting helicopters out of the sky and reducing rival pilots’ rides to scrap. Strategize in the moments in-between battles in the Mech Bay with mission recovery and choose your pre-deployment loadouts to maximize your chances of glory on the battlefield. Whether you play solo or team up via co-op with friends, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is all about risk, reward, and consequence.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries marks the return of the series’ mission-focused campaign structure, allowing pilots to call the shots while leading either AI-controlled allies or up to three friends through optional co-op into dangerous contracts. Unit leaders will decide which risky missions to accept, where their priorities lie across the Inner Sphere’s volatile conflict zones, as well as how to best utilize the resources earned from their dances with death.
