Paradox Interactive announced that its turn-based tactical game Battletech is now available on PC and Mac.
Developed by Harebrained Schemes, Battletech is the next generation of turn-based tactical Mech combat. The year is 3025 and the galaxy is trapped in a cycle of perpetual war, fought by noble houses with enormous, mechanized combat vehicles called BattleMechs. Take command of your own mercenary outfit of 'Mechs and the MechWarriors that pilot them, struggling to stay afloat as you find yourself drawn into a brutal interstellar civil war. Upgrade your starfaring base of operations, negotiate mercenary contracts with feudal lords, repair, maintain, and customize your stable of aging BattleMechs, all in the service of executing devastating combat tactics to defeat your enemies on the battlefield.
There's a lot of love for the BattleTech / MechWarrior universe, and the entire Harebrained team feels incredibly fortunate to have had the chance to work on a tactical combat game worthy of its legacy. We hope that fans of the universe and strategy gamers in general find as much fun and excitement playing Battletech as we found creating it.
Battletech is available for the suggested retail price of $39.99, with Linux-support to be added post-launch.
