BattleTech Flashpoint

Focus Home Interactive announced today that a new expansion is coming to Hairebrained Studios’ adaptation of the legendary board game, BattleTech. The game features mechs in turn-based strategy gameplay, and while the base game and previous updates focused on big, wide open spaces, Urban Warfare will take you to the city streets.

The expansion will, just as the name implies, put you and your warring machines in the heart of an urban center filled with destructible buildings and various hazards to use in combat, like abandoned fuel trucks or broken down electrical transformers. It will include two brand new BattleMechs, (the Raven 1X and the Javelin), new Flashpoints with branching paths, new enemy vehicles, and Attack and Defend- a new mission type where your mercenaries must destroy an enemy’s base to stop a steady stream of attackers before they can overcome your forces. You can read more about it at the expansion’s Steam page, and watch the announce trailer below.

BattleTech is available now exclusively for PC, which you can read our take on through here. Urban Warfare will be available to purchase on June 4th.
