A lot has happened recently in the world of Mechwarrior/Battletech. Most importantly a full video of the upcoming reboot of the video game franchise has surfaced.
This video really got the blood going for me. It brought memories of playing the game when it first came out 25 years ago. I guess it made me feel a little old too<grin>. Amazingly, this genre of gaming has survived so long because of the robust tableau of material that has emerged. I would argue that this universe is just as diverse as some, perhaps better known ones, such as Star Trek, or Star Wars.
In honor of the 25th anniversary and to get people reacquainted with the Mechwarrior universe, Smith & Tinker has authorized the release of Mechwarrior 4 and all of its expansions to be given away free. You can check out the link below for more details. I know MW4 is a venerable game, but it isn’t often you get the chance to own an entire game for free.
