BattleTech, the upcoming turn-based game from Hairbrained Schemes that we absolutely cannot wait any longer to get our hands on, has a release date: April 24th.
That’s right: in less than a month, we will finally get our first, turn-based, authentic BattleTech video game. Ever.
Along with the release date comes a fancy new trailer. Narrated by Kamea Arano, the deposed Aurigan noble who has a vaguely European accent, we’re given a brief recap of BattleTech’s history before she launches into the specifics of her political problems and the general plot of the game.
Of course, she also mentions how you’re ultimately a mercenary and can ignore her whenever you want. That’s why she ends the video with the promise of cold, hard c-bills for your trouble.
Everything about this game is looking sweet, so get ready to don your neurohelmet at the end of April. And if you haven’t already pre-ordered, here’s where to do it.
And as always, MechWarriors: Stay Syrupy.
“we will finally get our first, turn-based, authentic BattleTech video game. Ever.”
Licensed, maybe. Some of us old-timers remember Ralph Reed’s “BattleFort” :)
Yeah, don’t short-sell MegaMek! :)
Or you know, BattleTech: The Crescent Hawk’s Inception…
Inception and Revenge are both good. Revenge lets you create your own scenarios, once you’ve finished the game.
Ralph had a few B-Tech titles, and I LOVED all of them. Best mail order money I ever spent (and that included those X-Ray specs)
