An expansion for the BattleTech: A Game of Armored Combat, BattleTech: Clan Invasion is a physical game box containing pieces, papers, and material to play BattleTech in the Clan Invasion era. It is a supplement to BattleTech: A Game of Armored Combat and not a standalone introduction to BattleTech. This box set introduces the Clans, their advanced OmniMechs, Elemental Battle Armor, and the highly ritualized combat of the Clans known as Zellbrigen.
Catalyst Game Labs crowdfunded the production and development of the box set via a highly successful crowdfunding campaign which ran from 18 July 2019 to 18 August 2019. Backer rewards continued to be available on the project's Crowdox page.
BattleTech: Clan Invasion was scheduled to release in March 2020, but was delayed several times, first to May 2020 due to issues with the plastic miniatures manufacturer (backers were notified via a backers-only Kickstarter update) and again due to the COVID-19 pandemic (reported via the BattleTech website). Ultimately, backers received their copies beginning in October 2020.
From the back cover
|“||The Children of Kerensky Return!
In the year 3050, the true heirs of the lost Star League thunder forth from the depths of the far Periphery and carve deep into the quarreling Successor States. As the Clan juggernaut rolls across the coreward realms of the Inner Sphere, the House Lords scramble to shore up their defenses and devise some way to halt the invaders.
Backed by high-tech OmniMechs bristling with advanced weapons and battlesuit-clad Elementals capable of bringing down a 'Mech, the Clan crusade drives toward the heart of human-occupied space. Do you possess the bold tactics and heroic courage to defeat warriors trained from birth to conquer? Or will you uphold Kerensky's dream, cast aside the squabbling lords of the Inner Sphere, and reignite the flame of the Star League?
With this box, you'll unlock powerful new factions and 'Mechs to expand your BattleTech experience and take part in a cataclysmic conflict which will rock the Inner Sphere. The BattleTech: Clan Invasion box st includes five iconic OmniMechs—the Timber Wolf, Executioner, Nova, Adder, and Mongrel.
