IGN has shared two videos, showing 25 minutes of gameplay footage from MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. 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, and is currently planned for a December 2018 release.
