MechWarrior Tactics is the latest evolution of turn-based strategy blending tactical gameplay, deep collectability and unique online features as you command numerous Battle ’Mechs against an online opponent towards victory. MechWarrior Tactics allows players the freedom to collect and purchase combat and cosmetic resources to outfit each ‘Mech and assemble a Lance of four ‘Mechs. Master each ‘Mech Chassis, perfect insidious tactical maneuvers and develop endless new configurations in your Mech Bay. Assemble a Lance for the ages and keep one step ahead of both your friends and enemies.
The newest major changes to MechWarrior Tactics include alterations to the new Mech Library, which now works in tandem with the Mech Bay and allows players a much faster, cleaner and efficient way to create and customize both their Mechs and their Mech’s load outs – together with customizing those Mechs easily into various 4-Mech Lances.
Players can also now easily name their Mechs, and will see various updates to the user interface.
Coming soon in the closed beta is the introduction of the re-imagined and re-engineered ‘Scrapper 2.0’ feature, allowing pilots to trade in any duplicate cards in their STACs (in-game collectible cards) and transform them into Scrap currency. Additionally, all new Training Systems will be implemented to further assist budding new MechWarrior Tacticians as the battle in their browser for domination of the Inner Sphere.
Stay tuned for updates on other new content as the game heads towards Open Beta later this year.
