MechWarrior Online Open Beta

Open beta testing of MechWarrior Online is now underway, offering the promised opportunity to check out this multiplayer mech combat game:

Infinite Game Publishing (IGP) and Piranha Games announced today that after a decade of fan anticipation for a new MechWarrior game, MechWarrior Online has entered Open Beta. Mech combat has finally returned to millions of both veteran and new MechWarrior players at www.mwomercs.com. The highly anticipated and hotly previewed MechWarrior Online puts players in command of the most powerful war machine to ever walk the battlefield, the mighty BattleMech™. Already widely embraced by gamers in Closed Beta, its successful Founder’s Program achieved more than $5 million in sales since July.

“After a brief delay, we are very excited to open up the game and look forward to continuing to expand the Inner Sphere to both new players and our loyal fans. They have offered critical and immediate feedback, helping make MechWarrior Online the game it is today,” said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games.

Bullock continued, “We’re excited to enter this phase of development with our publishing partner, Infinite Games Publishing. Working together we have laid the groundwork for a full pipeline of content between now and our official launch early next year, and beyond.”

Set in the year 3049 during the early stages of a massive interstellar war, MechWarrior Online puts you in command of a wide variety of devastatingly powerful Mechs. Customize each of your Mechs to suit your preferred battlefield role; upgrade systems, replace weapons and tweak armor with near endless options.

Play MechWarrior Online now for FREE at www.mwomercs.com.

There isn't and won't be any SP component because the industry hasn't figured out how to fuck over gamers with microtransactions within a single player environment.

As for the MP, the free to play model in this game is pretty dire. Any half decent F2P game will start everyone on an equal footing and then provide advantages to paying customers that don't affect game balance. MWO is not like that. As a free player you will start in a clearly inferior training mech and you will have to grind for hours before you can even afford to buy a somewhat competitive mech. And even then the game has way too much grinding in general. And performance is not where it needs to be. Big open maps though, thanks to the Cryengine 3. It's open beta now, so everyone can give it a shot to see for themselves.
