Battletech PC

Post by Paladin » Tue Feb 27, 2018 4:23 pm

If you didn't get in one the Kickstarter, preorders are now up for Battletech on Steam. It launches sometime next month.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/637090/BATTLETECH/

This is a 3d isometric game based on the FASA/Catalyst board game rules. Looks like it will be really good. Yes, there is multiplayer.

It's a good time for Battletech PC fans. In addition to this, it looks like we're also going to get a new MechWarrior game in either late 2018 or early 2019.

Excellent, thanks for the heads up. :) I will probably wait til it is released rather than pre-order, just in case it releases full of bugs or what not (with my bandwidth, I only want to download it once ;) ), but this is right up my alley.

If you preorder on GOG, you get Shadowrun Returns for free.

I'm hoping to preload tonight, but I doubt I'll get to play it tomorrow.

I just got back from a business trip and started the download. It seems to only be a 9 GB download!! This means I might have it downloaded by Saturday. =P

I got through the intro mission. Haven't had a chance to revisit it yet. Too much yard work!

The grass does seem to be growing about 2 inches a day. =/

I didn't get a chance to play yesterday, and I got my ass handed to me the day before that. Postal seems to be cruising along with nary a scratch though...
