BattleTech Released

Two and a half years after its highly successful Kickstarter campaign, Harebrained Schemes have released BattleTech to the world. We've covered BattleTech despite the fact that its status as an RPG is in dispute - because it's turn-based, because it's tabletop, and because it's Harebrained Schemes. It's the biggest project they've ever done, and its fate will determine what comes next for the studio that gave us three Shadowrun RPGs. You've read the updates, you've watched the streams and dev diaries, so all that's left is to post the launch trailer:


Reviews of BattleTech have been quite positive, one notable exception being the review by Rock Paper Shotgun's Alec Meer, who finds the game ponderous and lacking in variety. Some of the other reviews echo similar concerns, but don't seem as bothered by them. Here are all of the reviews I was able to find:

It's become clear from developer Q&A that Harebrained have had to leave a lot of mechanics on the cutting room floor, and the Codex's tactical combat grognards have been unhappy. What I'm interested in, though, is how our horde of Dragonfall fans will receive the game. If you didn't back it on Kickstarter, BattleTech is available now on Steam and GOG for the price of $40.
