Paradox Publishing BATTLETECH; Backer Beta Next Month

Harebrained Schemes announces a Kickstarter backer beta for BATTLETECH will kick off on June 1st. This comes along with word that they've struck a new partnership with Paradox Interactive, who will publish the mech strategy game. There's a new PDXCON trailer celebrating the publishing deal and a new backer beta trailer featuring some multiplayer gameplay and some harebrained antics from Harebrained Schemes. Here's word on the new deal:
Right now, somewhere in Sweden, BattleTech & MechWarrior creator Jordan Weisman is announcing a partnership between Harebrained Schemes and Paradox Interactive to publish BATTLETECH on PC. As our Backers, we feel itís important that you get this information straight from us before it hits the press, so hereís the deal in a nutshell: Paradox will provide marketing support, localization services, and funds for additional testing in exchange for a cut of the gameís sales. This allows us to focus all our efforts on making a great game while maintaining complete creative control.

Iím really excited that HBS will have the chance to work with Paradox as they are the clear category leader for PC strategy games. We respect the quality and depth of their games and they have lots of players and fans in our studio. Equally important to us is the way that Paradox respects and engages with their community, values we share.
(Plus, theyíre huge fans of our work on the Shadowrun Returns series and are really excited about our game - good qualities in a publisher, right?)

Great news! I had to support the project as soon as I got the mail by Harebrained that this would be their next project. Now - please be good, Battletech! You won't wait on my huge back log, this is something I will play day 1!
