BATTLETECH: Heavy Metal Rocks Out

The Heavy Metal expansion is now available for BATTLETECH, adding new content to this mech combat game for Windows, Linux, and macOS. This expansion, which is included in the game's season pass, adds new mechs, new weapon systems, and a mini-campaign. You can pick up a copy through either the Paradox Store, GOG.com, or Steam. The Release Trailer offers a look, and the announcement has the scoop:
Heavy Metal is the definitive expansion for fans of BATTLETECH’s 35-year legacy, adding seven classic ‘Mech designs from the original BATTLETECH board game and an additional ‘Mech exclusively designed for this expansion. Players can pilot these new ‘Mechs in an all-new Flashpoint mini-campaign featuring two legendary MechWarriors from BATTLETECH's rich history. By adding eight weapon systems and ‘Mechs, each with unique special equipment, players can enjoy a wealth of new and interesting tactical choices both in the Mechlab and on the battlefield!

Key Features:

  • One Original and Seven Classic BattleMechs: Seven classic ‘Mechs from BATTLETECH’s 35-year legacy make their triumphant return along with the first completely new ‘Mech designed exclusively for this expansion. Each classic ‘Mech comes with unique equipment that reflects the flavor and lore of the original board game.
  • Eight Game-changing New Weapon Systems: Eight all-new weapon systems can be utilized to destroy even the most formidable opponents in a wide variety of unique ways. The ‘Mech Mortar is the first AOE weapon in BATTLETECH and can destroy multiple units at once, while the new COIL Beam generates more energy the further the attacker travels before firing, a perfect fit for light ‘Mechs.
  • New Flashpoint Mini-Campaign: Come face-to-face with two legendary characters from BATTLETECH lore - the Bounty Hunter and the Black Widow of Wolf’s Dragoons. A derelict cargo ship has drifted into the Periphery from deep space; what secrets does it contain, and who will ultimately control its mysterious payload?
