About this game

Developed by Harebrained Schemes and published by Paradox Interactive.

Adventure into a world stuck in a loop of perpetual war set in the year 3025. Take control of mechanised combat vehicles and the mercenaries that ride them named BattleMechs as you'll be sucked into an interstellar war!

Your Own Army of Mechs

Take charge of over 30 BattleMechs, each with their own unique playstyles and create a wide range of combinations to take into the battlefield! Use numerous environmental advantages to gain the upper hand in combat in this turn-based strategy title, as you'll take the high ground and use the terrain, change your position, make a selection from various weapons and abilities, and outwit your opponents!

A Mercenary Company

Head out to recruit numerous mercenaries to join your cause and turn them into MechWarriors that'll fit perfectly into your team! Recruit them into your party, customise them, and make them unique to increase your power on the battlefield! 

Customise Your Dropship

Take advantage of numerous customisation options for your dropship and make it yours by improving it and preparing it for battle!

Increase Your Reputation

Play as a Mercenary and travel throughout space as you undertake missions and affect your reputation with a range of numerous factions, including noble houses and local factions!

Affect the Civil War

Aid a revolution that seeks to return the throne to its rightful ruler after a coronation coup d'etat that violently deposed Kamea Arano from her position. Become the leader of the revolution, fight back the Aurigan Directorate, and bring peace to the galaxy!

A Wide Range of Customisation

Use the MechLab menu to look at all of your battle units, maintain them, and upgrade them to help you out in battle! Replace previously-damaged weapon systems by scavenging through battlefield salvage, take it from fallen foes, and repurpose it for the revolution!

Multiplayer Mode

Create your own party of MechWarriors and go head-to-head against numerous opponents. Fight against your friends, go online to face foes online, or even go into the single-player skirmish mode and test your mettle against BATTLEMECH's AI! The fun doesn't have to end after the campaign.

Best turn-based tactics game I've ever played! Lots of depth and mechanics to learn, but it's approachable. It really hooked me, and the depth is keeping me interested long-term.

About as close to tabletop battletech as you can get. Definitely recommend getting all the DLC before first playthrough! All of the additional content adds to the game at all stages from start to finish, but not a lot after you complete the campaign... unless you basically start over with a career mode, etc which is totally fun as well.

This is one of the best games out there for Battletech. I backed the KS and bought the DLC for myself, and then I purchased this for a friend so that they could play. Solid game, well made, great story. Has a few flaws, as all games do, but 95/100

Staff Review
Taking the strategical elements of the popular tabletop version and combining it with the video game form has resulted in an entertaining, engaging gameplay experience. BattleTech is back, and it's looking better than ever.
