MechWarrior Tactics Closed Beta; Founder's Program

Closed beta testing of MechWarrior Tactics has officially commenced, and North American gamers are being offered the opportunity to participate in vetting the online strategy title by purchasing one of three different Founder's packages."MechWarrior Tactics is a game deeply rooted and inspired by the original and cherished BattleTech tabletop games. It’s important for us to bring to life the essence of the BattleTech experience for fans and we’re looking forward to their valuable feedback," says Chris Cleroux, Game Director, Roadhouse Interactive. "This is truly a project where the Closed Beta will be one, long conversation with the fanbase ensuring that we are creating an experience which captures the magic, excitement and flavor of the BattleTech universe."

I'm wondering how P2W this game will be. From what I've read, it sounds like they're almost going for a CCG type of game, but you can still earn cards in-game. Not sure how much grinding you have to do to get stuff though. The synergies between equipment from the same manufacturer, for example, could give an advantage to someone who can buy a bunch of stuff up front. Not sure how significant it will actually be in the game though.

I've been impressed with MWO. There's a real sense of weight to your mechs, something which to me Hawken has a problem with and seems a bit more floaty.

Once they bring back collision to the game, things are going to get very very interesting...:)

I want Mechcommander 3. As far as turn-based Mechwarrior goes, I'd rather run a Windows 98 virtual environment and play Missionforce Cyberstorm than play some F2P online abomination.

I played MWO for a bit. But the F2P thing lost me. And the MechBay as well. I don`t wanna be forced to learn this stuff so I become more of a mechanic, than a pilot. Tbh I`d rather have Mechwarrior III remade with a new Next Gen engine.


Erm what? Ok go play some Hawken, Im sure it will be much better for you anyway...

In any case the more I play MWO the better it gets. Its actually a great little Mechwarrior fix. Im looking forward to tactics as well, as Im a big fan of turn based strategy as well and since I never played tabletop Battletech this is I guess as close as it gets...

This was such a dumb idea to do the online F2P model for this and MWO. This game in particular screams SP/MP. I want this game but not as an online F2P game godamit!

We agree!! First time in 2013..lol

Well if you want to pony up the capital needed for a single player Mech Warrior feel free. At least in the case of MWO they tried and no publisher wanted to do it, and since Microsoft still owns the license for electronic game versions, I'm really not all that surprised no publisher wanted to bite. Microsoft is the reason MPBT:3025 never saw the light of day, and EA generally doesn't need much prodding to cancel a title that they own outright, nevermind one they're sublicensing from another publisher.

I'm like you, I would have much preferred an actual MW5, but MWO isn't as terrible as some like to make it out to be, with a good group of regulars to drop with it's actually pretty fun.
