MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries DLC Next Month

A tweet from MechWarrior5Mercs reveals MechWarrior 5 Rise of Rasalhague, new DLC coming on January 26th to MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries (thanks Sarna.net via Neutronbeam). When this arrives you'll be able to buy it on your choice of the Epic Games Store, GOG.com, Steam, or the Windows Store. This will add a new campaign, a new Crusader chassis, and game updates, including some improvements to the base game which will be free to all owners. Here's an overview:
In a conflict that pre-dates the formation of the Star League, Join Colonel MÃ¥nsdottir and the people of Rasalhague in a fight for freedom and independence from the Great Houses, in a new 12 mission quest line. Rise of Rasalhague adds the Crusader 'Mech chassis with 10 variants, the new Rival Mercenaries feature allowing you to interact with numerous other mercenary companies and the infamous Bounty Hunter.

As the resident MechWarrior apologist I'll defend the game a bit. It has a great host of less-than-exceptional features, but in coop, playing the mercenary mode (I don't remember what they call it), my friends and I have had a lot of fun with it. I've about 80 hours in the game and I'd play more but getting friends together on the same night is always a challenge. Be aware there are a number of good mods for it as well. Could it be better? Definitely. PGI isn't a great developer (I'd call them moderately competent and somewhat uninspired), but it's still a fun game.

There are a lot of serious ways the game could improve, but the money just doesn't seem to be there. The expansions usually add little nibbles of features and mostly new mechs. I'm guessing this one is the same.

Oh, and the game has notably improved from the initial release which was pretty crap all around.
