MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Announced For PC At Mech_Con 2016

On the Mech_Con stage this year, Piranha Games announced MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is the first stand-alone single player title in the MechWarrior series in nearly 15 years, and will be released for the PC. Featuring intense PvE ‘Mech combat in a campaign driven by player choice, the story is set in an advancing timeline starting in the year 3015. Players will take on the role of a green MechWarrior mercenary thrust into combat as the Third Succession War continues to fracture the Inner Sphere; the vast region of colonized space surrounding Earth.

“Our main goal with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is to provide fans with a standalone, story-driven single-player experience that allows for a great amount of flexibility in terms of player choice, built on a foundation of the intense, tactical ‘Mech combat the franchise is known for,” says Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. “Along with the release of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries in 2018 we’re going to continue supporting our existing MechWarrior Online game and its fanbase with new updates and regular content releases. MWO is now in its fifth year of development and operation, and there’s still a lot of really cool stuff planned for it. For fans who have been waiting for the return of a true single-player MechWarrior game though, we are really happy to announce MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries.”

MechWarrior 5Mercenaries is currently being developed using the Unreal Engine 4 and is set to release for the Windows PC sometime in 2018.
