Piranha Games announced that preorders for the upcoming MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, the classic series’ first single player campaign-focused entry in more than 17 years, are available via the Epic Games store for $49.99 for the Standard Edition and $59.99 for the Deluxe Edition (https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/mechwarrior-5/home.) The title is set to launch on December 10th on Windows PC.
The MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Standard Edition includes the full game download and PDF game manual while the Deluxe Edition adds a digital game manual, digital technical BattleTech manual, the game’s digital soundtrack and a digital 4k desktop pack. The digital game manual is a comprehensive breakdown of mechanics and features in MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries while the digital technical manual contains awesome imagery and information about the equipment and ‘Mechs found in the game.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is modeled after the gameplay style from MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries, granting players the freedom to run their campaigns how they choose. In MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, pilots will build, manage, and guide their own mercenary unit through a multi-year campaign during the sprawling Third and Fourth Succession Wars enjoying by far the greatest amount of player freedom and choice compared to past titles.
Whether braving missions alone, alongside AI-controlled pilots, or with the help of up to three friends via co-op play, pilots will face complicated situations with no perfect solution as they choose which contracts to accept, where in the Inner Sphere to direct their attention, and how to balance repairs or upgrades with maintaining their unit’s precious resources.
