MechWarrior Online Website
has details on a new update that's now live in
, updating the multiplayer Mech game to version 188.8.131.52
(thanks Rhialto). This is a large update, adding a new Solaris 7 game mode along
with new Fafnir Mechs, Solaris heroes, and more. Here's a bit on Solaris:
is a 1v1 and 2v2 arena combat expansion for MechWarrior Online! Drawing from
BattleTech lore, the idea behind Solaris fits perfectly for MWO in terms of
It features leader boards and a reward structure completely new to MWO and not
related to Quick Play or Faction Play.
Who can participate?
Anyone can participate in the Solaris Games, for both the 1 vs 1 and 2 vs 2
Divisions. Before participating in the Solaris 7 Games however, players must
first select a Patron for the Division they wish to play in. Divisions differ
from each other in terms of the 'Mechs allowed to be used in combat. For
example, 'Mechs in Division 1 cannot be used in combat against 'Mechs in
Division 2. (See section about Patrons for details.)
