MechWarrior Online

MechWarrior Online is the next installment in the MechWarrior franchise. Developed by Piranha Games and published by Infinite Games, it’s set to be a premium free-to-play game based on four pillars: Mech Warfare, Role Warfare, Community Warfare, and Information Warfare. Players will be able to take command of their BattleMech battlefield behemoths and customize them to suit their favored combat roles by upgrading systems, replacing weapons, and tweaking armor from a vast list of options. Ally with one of the five great houses, or create your own Mercenary Corps and take on other Merc Corps for control of the Inner Sphere planets.


  • Mech Warfare | A new 3D HUD system will be available for Mech pilots, giving them a first-person view.
  • Role Warfare | Whether you want to play as attacker, commander, defender, or scout, players will be able to customize Mechs to suit their playstyle.
  • Community Warfare | Players will be able to challenge the five great houses, and also take their Merc Corps to war with other Corps.
  • Information Warfare | Based on line-of-site, and incorporating information technologies, players will experience a new level of tactical and strategic gameplay.

Piranha's Russ Bullock on the Biggest Update Yet - MechWarrior Online News

But as someone who never really took the time to pay much attention to Mechwarrior Online and the much larger Battletech universe, the highlight of my evening was sitting down and talking with Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games.
