  • MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Dated for September 10, 2019

    Do not adjust your calendars! The headline is correct! This weekend, Piranha Games revealed that MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be released on September 10, 2019. This very exact and very far-off release date was revealed during Mech_Con 2018 on Saturday, December 2, 2018.

    How do they have that exact date? No idea. Will they actually release on that date without delay? I have no idea. Will this site stop having database crashes? Probably not. It's a strange time we're living in, folks.

    A new trailer was released as part of the recent announcement. It's a gameplay trailer that shows off "the explosive high-stakes battles and decisions pilots will face when they take control of their own mercenary unit on launch day." There's also a bunch of new images and a piece of MechWarrior 5 key art if you want that for whatever reason.

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will allow pilots to build, manage and guide their own mercenary unit through a multi-year campaign during the sprawling Third and Fourth Succession Wars. Whether braving missions alone, alongside AI-controlled pilots, or with the help of up to three friends via co-op play, players will face complicated situations with no perfect solution as they choose which contracts to accept, where in the galaxy to direct their attention, and how to balance repairs or upgrades with maintaining their unit’s precious resources.

    Mech_Con is an annual celebration of the MechWarrior universe, as well as the world of BattleTech, which gathers the MechWarrior community’s most dedicated pilots in Vancouver. Now a two-day event as of Mech_Con 2018, attendees are treated to a full schedule of live presentations, developer Q&As, and hands-on demo opportunities for the latest MechWarrior titles, as well as front-row seats for the final matches of the 2018 MechWarrior Online World Championships.

    “Getting to meet with MechWarrior’s most diehard fans and see them react to the team’s hard work at Mech_Con has become an incredible tradition for us," said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. “The team has put so much work and passion into our mission to bring MechWarrior back into the spotlight, and seeing our excitement for what’s still to come for this classic series reverberate with the community in the room tonight was incredible.”
