BattleTech Universe is an intensely detailed sourcebook providing an overview of the history and setting of the BattleTech Universe, providing details of the features, technology and factions of BattleTech stretching across all BattleTech eras to the time of the ilClan.

BattleTech Universe was originally set to be published in the fourth quarter of 2022,[2] but was eventually delayed in the lead-up to the 2023 crowdfunding campaign for the BattleTech: Mercenaries boxset. As well as being included as a add-on option, the campaign offered a premium $200 physical Precentor Martial Edition which is to include half a dozen sections of layered acetate sheets allowing readers to "peel away" the various sections of a BattleMech, Battle Armor Aerospace Fighter and so on, multiple gatefold pages of mercenary wallpapers from the campaign and envelopes containing additional items such as the Hanse Davion and Melissa Steiner Wedding Announcement, all presented in a stunning box or slipcase.
