Players can look forward to joining forces with fellow MechWarriors for co-op on Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam and GOG.com on May 27. A free, major update will be available at launch including over 30 new and enhanced features. The team is also pleased to confirm that players will be able to join a friend to experience the entirety of the Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC Career Mode campaign.

      To celebrate the upcoming features in MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries and the Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC, the base game price has been dropped to €29.99 / £24.99 / $29.99.

Explore new warzones, new quests, and new missions that span the full scope of the Inner Sphere. Hunt the Heroes with special quests that tell the story of seven new heroes and their lostech mechs.

    • Mann sieht das cool aus. Gibts hier eigentlich MechWarrior-Fans im Forum und at jemand Erfahrungen zu diesem Teil? Fands ja als Kind immer megacool aber da ich keinen PC hatte, kam nur der SNES Teil in Frage und dann vor zwei Jahren oder so Teil 2 für die PS1, den ich hier auch getestet habe^^

      Meiner Meinung nach waren die KI Mitstreiter bissl übereifrig und ich musste sie oft manuell zurückpfeifen. Da wäre mir lieber gewesen sie würden mehr auf meine Befehle warten. Ansonsten fand ich schon gut, dass sie die Vorteile der Mechs an sich ausnutzen im Kampf. Auf jeden Fall waren die Missionen mit mehreren Mechs deutlich einfacher als alleine.
