According to the developers, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be the first single-player MechWarrior experience since 2002, which is why the team wants some extra time in order to deliver the best possible experience.
Piranha Games also confirmed that a robust playable demo will be available at MechCon 2018.
Alongside its single-player mode, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will feature intense PvE ‘Mech combat in an immersive, career-based Mercenary campaign driven by player choice. The game will be powered by the Unreal Engine 4, will support mods as well as 4-player co op mode.
