MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Special Editions

Piranha Games is now accepting preorders for no fewer than three different community editions of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, the upcoming mechanized first-person shooter sequel. These include bonuses for the new mostly single-player game, as well as some perks for its older sibling, MechWarrior Online which alone are said to be equal in cash value to the cost of the special editions, which range in cost from $49.99 to $119.99. They also offer a new trailer showing off gameplay. Here's a bit from the announcement on the game itself:
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is modeled after the gameplay style from MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries, granting players the freedom to run their campaigns how they choose. In MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, pilots will build, manage, and guide their own mercenary unit through a multi-year campaign during the sprawling Third and Fourth Succession Wars.

Whether braving missions alone, alongside AI-controlled pilots, or with the help of up to three friends via co-op play, pilots will face complicated situations with no perfect solution as they choose which contracts to accept, where in the galaxy to direct their attention, and how to balance repairs or upgrades with maintaining their unitís precious resources.

The MWO aspect is simply too complicated for the majority of average gameplayers. Frankly, Id prefer to have something I can jump in and out of after a days work without having to manage a bunch of components 'n shit.

Just watch, I bet within a few months after release someone will have hacked rudimentary Versus MP into MW5. If they truly are adding co-op, then the groundwork will already be there.

For some reason those that still cling to MWO want there to be "MWO2" in the MW5 engine. As in, they still want the same helping of grindy f2p (consumables, "skill trees", expensive virtual toy "Mech Packs", etc.) nonsense attached to MW Multiplayer instead of just having a straight up drop-in/drop-out thing like MW: Legends.
