Piranha Games and Infinite Game Publishing have put the Death’s Knell mech into the MechWarrior Online store. The mech is now available and has 176 points of armour and four medium lasers, two in each arm.
Starting today, players will also be greeted by the familiar and long-awaited Bitching Betty startup sequence, “Reactor Online. Sensors Online. Weapons Online. All Systems Nominal.”
The official female cockpit voiceover from the original MechWarrior games first returned to MechWarrior Online late last year, but the famous greeting is newly available, adding another authentic element from the series, which continues to evolve with fun and valuable content updates.
“Whether I choose to pilot a familiar or totally new Mech, such as Death’s Knell, hearing Bitching Betty at the start really brings back fond memories while I get pumped for the action on the battlefield,” said Bryan Ekman, creative director, Piranha Games.
“We are excited to see how players utilize this speedy and deadly Mech, which excels at taking the fight to the enemy, and escaping before they can retaliate.”
