Set during the “4th Succession War,” one of the most famous conflicts in the BattleTech universe, Legend of the Kestrel Lancers offers a story-focused campaign that finds players on the frontlines of battle with 14 campaign missions featuring unique mechanics, authored missions, custom dialogue, and cinematics. During their journey, players will experience All-Out-War scenarios with large-scale expansive combat in seven new questlines that include 10 new battle scenarios. Megacity Urban Combat, featuring massive destructible environments and procedurally generated city blocks, return at a significantly larger scale than anything previously seen in the MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries series. In addition, players can look forward to wreaking havoc across new Megacity, Jungle, and Tourmaline Desert Biomes – as well as new Garrisons, including Orbital Guns and a new ‘Mech Factory, featuring the series’ first indoor play space. Of course, players can also look forward to a ton of new options for customizing their ‘Mechs with 23 new Mech Variants and new Patterns to collect.
The expansion comes on top of one of the largest free updates to-date, out now for all owners of the MechWarrior: Mercenaries base game and Heroes of the Inner Sphere expansion, regardless of platform. The free MELEE update makes one of the MechWarrior community’s most requested gameplay updates a reality with the introduction of Melee Combat. For the first time, players can now damage enemy ‘Mechs with their ‘Mech fists, directing punches to target the enemy right…in…the…face! The addition of close-quarters combat is especially effective attack option when a ‘Mech is running hot.
