MechWarrior Online beta goes live next week
Piranha Games has announced that the ongoing MechWarrior Online beta will transition from “STATUS: CLOSED” to “STATUS: OPEN” next week Tuesday, 16 October.
“We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of the fans over the course of our closed beta period,” said Piranha prez Russ Bullock. “The amazing fans and the high quality feedback given to our team have helped us craft MechWarrior Online into a true MechWarrior gameplay experience. We’re more than excited to open up the game and look forward to continuing to expand the InnerSphere with our loyal fans.”
The game puts you in the big metal boots of a BattleMech in the midst of nothing less than total galactic war.
BZZZZT, PSSSSHHHTTTT, BRRRRRRRNNNNNGGGGMMM, KZZZZZZZ, KLUNK KLUNK KLUNK, PREPARE TO BE EX-TER-MIN-A-TED. That’s me doing my best impression of a BattleMech in a galactic war.
The team at Piranha is also prepping to launch a series of updates to the game over the next couple of months, including custom character skins, decals, and new maps.
In the meantime, you should probably reserve your pilot name so nobody else gets to call themselves xXxPr0_H1Tm4N_aSs4sS1N_NiNj4_69xXx.
