Harebrained Schemes’ turn-based tactical strategy BattleTech launched in April 2018 to fairly positive reviews. If you’ve been on the fence ever since, then now might be a good time to try it out. BattleTech is free this weekend on Steam, starting from today until February 24th. So don’t delay and keep Dekker alive today.
BattleTech takes the classic MechWarrior combat of old and offers a tactical approach. Set in 3025, players become involved in a war between noble houses and must manage their own mercenary unit to survive. Taking up contracts, maintaining a number of BattleMechs – including upgrading and changing their parts – and extensive combat is required.
A number of updates have been released for the game since launch, including the recent Flashpoint expansion. It brings Flashpoints – which branching stories that link missions, events and choices together – and new BattleMechs like the Hatchetman. If you enjoyed the base game, then it’s currently 40 percent off until February 25th while Flashpoint is 10 percent off until then.
