BattleTech Update Will Add Combat Pace Options, MechWarrior Custmization

Harebrained Schemes would also love to "release a larger paid content expansion or two".

Posted By | On 04th, May. 2018

Harebrained Schemes’ BattleTech has had a fairly good reception since launching with critics praising the story and the freedom offered. There have been a number of issues as well but with the game’s success, the developer states that “many things are now possible.” Although it’s released a patch to deal with issues, a general bugfix patch will be coming by late May.

The various “hardware/system compatibility and performance issues” that are being experienced by a “subset of players” is also being investigated. “Solutions for critical issues are always our top priority, and will be released as soon as they’re available and tested. Typically, we will release patches to our public_beta branch on Steam for a few days for testing before we push them to the default branch.”

After the bugfix patch, a larger patch is due in May that will bring a number of new features. These include Accelerated Combat Options to accelerate the overall pace of combat missions; MechWarrior customization to allow for customizing other pilots’ appearances, callsigns, names and voices; some “discrete” options to increase the game’s challenge in certain areas; the ability to skip the prologue missions’ tutorials (for those that have already played them); and the addressing of difficulty spikes.

To make things even sweeter, the developer will release more free updates after this, and would “also love to release a larger paid content Expansion or two.” The focus is currently on fixing bugs and reacting to launch feedback so don’t count on expansions arriving any time soon.
