Mechwarrior Online Receives 8vs8 Player Custom Match Making, ECMs and New Hero Mech
Now even larger groups of players can engage in mecha massacres.
MechWarrior Online, the free to play mech combat sim developed by Piranha Games for PC, has received a new range of updates, including with 8 vs. 8 custom group match making, Electronic Counter Measure Suite warfare and a new Hero Mech, the Ilya Muromets. And since it’s that time of the year, you can also customize your mech to include a Santa Claus bobblehead to celebrate Christmas.
Piranha Games creative director Bryan Ekman stated that, “With the new 8-player group vs. group action and ECM, the competitive element in the game has been upped in a major way. Blending new content with the rich history of the BattleTech universe, we are excited to introduce Ilya Muramets CTF-IM Cataphract, the first PGI-crafted character, a resilient and balanced Hero Mech representing the Capellan Confederation.”
While the electronic counter measures insure that opposing have a hard time both detecting you and getting a missile lock, the Ilya Muramets offers flexibility and durability boasting a good mix of energy and ballistic hard-points. For more information on the newest Hero mech, click here.
