You can now play Mechwarrior Online as the open beta is now live. There was a closed beta held earlier where only certain people got in, but this is as the name suggests open to all.
Ready to wield the mighty Battlemech and show your foes how skilled you are? Well now you can.
“After a brief delay, we are very excited to open up the game and look forward to continuing to expand the Inner Sphere to both new players and our loyal fans. They have offered critical and immediate feedback, helping make MechWarrior Online the game it is today,” said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games.
“We’re excited to enter this phase of development with our publishing partner, Infinite Games Publishing. Working together we have laid the groundwork for a full pipeline of content between now and our official launch early next year, and beyond.”
Set in the year 3049 during the early stages of a massive interstellar war, MechWarrior Online puts you in command of a wide variety of devastatingly powerful Mechs. Customize each of your Mechs to suit your preferred battlefield role; upgrade systems, replace weapons and tweak armor with near endless options.
We will be previewing the game soon as well, so stay tuned for that.
