MechWarrior has returned to the Xbox platform better than ever and we’re so excited that fans and new players can check out the latest adventure in the BattleTech universe!
Why better than ever? Well, we spent nearly one year of development time to implement over 30 major updates to the base game based directly on feedback from our passionate MechWarrior community. This huge (and free) update covers a bit of everything with quality-of-life improvements that make managing and customizing your mechs a breeze, adjustments to UI and game systems, and new gameplay changes that add new bases and garrisons to explore and destroy as well as more variety and challenge throughout the game. It’s difficult to show these off in a few in-game screenshots so here’s a quick look at what you can expect:
The life of a MechWarrior mercenary remains a dangerous and sometimes lonesome profession. That’s why we’re so excited that MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will support cross play across the Xbox Series X|S and PC platforms. Now you can team up with friends while you destroy enemy forces while leveling entire cities (and loads of other things along the way)!
When you’re ready for more of the merc life, the Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC awaits and we’ve taken a unique approach to content access — there’s no gated content on this addition to the MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries base game. So whether you’d like some company or a friend isn’t 100% sure if they want the DLC, a fellow merc can join a match hosted by a player who owns the DLC, and experience the entirety of the Heroes of the Inner Sphere campaign together.
As a special treat, MechWarrior 5 players on Xbox and Microsoft PC will receive an exclusive Kobold Hero Mech. This featured mech comes with a custom loadout and paint job plus Goblin AI pilot with new dialogue.
Whether you’re a longtime MechWarrior veteran or new to the series, there’s really never been a better time to discover the ultimate power fantasy of stomping through war torn cities in a building-sized weapon of destruction with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries and Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC, out now for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC!
