Mech Warrior Online Beta This Week

The MechWarrior Online Website announces Operation: Inception, a pair of founder's program packages for Piranha's upcoming online mech combat game, also announcing this week will see the launch of the game's closed beta test. Word is that those who purchase one of these bundles will get guaranteed access to the beta. This post clarifies details about this, including that they will not prevent those outside of North America from participating:

You've probably seen our big news today - Beta signups are official! But how, you ask?

First, log onto the forums; then click profile and it's right there! For greater clarity closed beta starts today! we will be inviting users as soon as tomorrow.

Secondly, how the Founders program beta/early access works: The program is purchasable on June 19th and you gain guaranteed access to the closed beta on July 17th.

Thirdly, the reason this announcement stated 'North America' is that it's for North American servers As we have mentioned we are working very hard to launch MechWarrior Online in every region worldwide. We may also run a similar Operation for other regions, therefore we are required to recommend that for the best play experience you register and play in your region in the near future. However There is no IP blocking. You can signup from everywhere just keep in mind that if you are outside of North America we cannot guarantee your play experience.

Thanks for being the most awesome fanbase ever, and we hope this clears up your questions.

Now this is gonna be bigger than that pos GW2. can smell the fail on that game already, just like the facebook ipo all hype nothing to back it.

Son, a mind is a terrible thing to waste. Lay off the meth.

You know Cutter, if you just replace 'bigger' with better, then the comment doesn't sound at all laced with meth!

My problem is this:
However There is no IP blocking. You can signup from everywhere just keep in mind that if you are outside of North America we cannot guarantee your play experience.

I can pretty much guarantee they will however negatively affect those that stick to their own region hoping for lag free gaming. The last thing I wanted for Mechwarrior, was a F2P model with clustered virtual servers, and 300 ping asian connections butt-humping playability from the get-go.

I gotta say...I will be sorely disappointed the second I see an Atlas rubber-band it's way across a map just because they didn't region block.

What are you talking about Cutter meth is DA BOMB!

In any case Ill be watching this game closely, also would appreciate a key (or two) since I get the feeling Diablo3 wont be holding me in its grip for very long unless they change their gameplay mechanics considerably.

Without knowing exactly what their store will look like with average prices on items and what exactly is needed vs. wanted I won't be pre-paying anything. Still, I admit I am excited to rock 'n roll in a mech again.

Edit: Yeah spare keys for Blues peeps will be greatly appreciated as always. And a Blues clan so we can stomp mofos in-game would be handy too.

Edit part deux: Dammit, how the hell did someone register Cutter already!? Anyway went with my usual MMO toon name - Waxx!

Normally I'd be right with you. But this is Mechwarrior. And from seeing the recent footage, it's MPBT 3025 with better visuals and customization. They already have my money for even putting this game out. I'm sorry I am that weak when it comes to this franchise.

Woohooo... can`t wait! Finally a real Next Gen Mechwarrior. It has been a long wait since Mechwarrior 3.

We've needed one for a long time.

Mech 3 wasn't bad, but the net code was so bad, if you didn't know how to lag shoot it was impossible.

I'd still rather take the Mech 4 series with just better graphics.

Cool, been waiting for this forever now. Hope I get a key, or someone takes pity on me and tosses me one. The mech drought has been so long...
