MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries releases in December 2018 & will support mods

Piranha Games president, Russ Bullock, revealed at MechCon 2017 that MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will release in December 2018. MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be the first standalone single-player MechWarrior title in development for PC in nearly 15 years, and will feature intense PvE ‘Mech combat in an immersive, career-based Mercenary campaign driven by player choice.

Featuring an advancing timeline starting in the year 3015, players will adopt the role of a green MechWarrior mercenary thrust into combat as the Third Succession War continues to fracture the Inner Sphere; the vast region of colonized space surrounding Earth. Victory, prestige, and profit will not only require skill on the battlefield, but in the maintenance and enhancement of your BattleMechs.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be powered by the Unreal Engine 4, will support mods as well as 4-player co op.

In order to celebrate this announcement, Piranha Games has released a new teaser trailer for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries that you can watch below.

Enjoy!
