BattleTech Flashpoint

After being acquired by Paradox Interactive, Harebrained Schemes promised more content for its turn-based tactical strategy title BattleTech. That plan has finally materialized in the form of Flashpoint, an expansion which brings unique new features to the fray. Check out the announcement trailer below.

The major selling point of the expansion are the titular Flashpoints. These are defined as a series of “action-packed short stories” where players will embark on extended contracts to reap huge rewards. Along with offering procedural mercenary missions, you can look forward to special events, critical choices and new conversations opening up. Some Flashpoints may even require you to deploy on the next mission without repairing your Mechs.

Along with Flashpoints, the expansion brings a new encounter called Target Acquisition, which tasks players with controlling three territories on a map; three new Mechs – the Hatchetman, the Crab, and Cyclops – and a new tropical beach biome are also featured. No price or release date (aside from “Fall 2018”) has been revealed for the expansion yet, but more information can be found here.
