Free MW4 Release Cleared

MekTek.net indicates the free MechWarrior 4 rerelease first promised last summer is drawing near. The rerelease of the giant robot combat sequel was previously said to be near before complications set in. However, following the release of the new MekPak earlier this month, MekTek Studios has received clearances from Microsoft Legal to go forward with the MechWarrior 4 rerelease. They do not state exactly when to expect the release, but do say it "is now imminent."

No, it's a completely free release. Whether or not all of the mods and maps will work remains to be seen, but the game itself requires nothing but a download unless they significantly changed from what their press release said about 9 months ago.

No need for the disks, and your installed version from the disks will not work either. Might want to head to mektek now and get MTX and begin downloading the MekPak 3.1 version, we will be patching that version to the free release sometime this weekend.

If you have the CD's still, you can play the current version, if you don't have the CD's, you will just have to wait a couple days until we patch up to the free version, but you will be all set by then. We will be releasing it to our testers for a quick beta to make sure we catch any bugs that may be lurking. Once that's cleared the beta team, it will go public.

All of our mods will work, they're actually all included in the download,and I don't know of any maps that don't work either. There's really no reason they shouldn't.

Thank you Prez. This is sweet, I totally loved MW4. Gonna be playing this release with my well aged MS Sidewinder FF2 joystick (without the force feedback unfortunately).

About time. But the MW4 mechs look cartoonish but still I will play.

Agreed, the best looking mechs were in Mechwarrior 3, those looked great and drove like they had real weight to them. I gave up on MW4 because of the cartoon'ish look and feel to the game.
Consoles are schwag.

For those interested, We made the Coop conversion of al lthe single player maps for this too. the Mod can be downloaded here. Im not sure if the game had any changes that might make the mod act up, but I will be testing that once its released.
