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.
