    We've known for a while that Harebrained Schemes' BattleTech was going to come out sometime early this year. Today we've learned which month, if not the exact date. The game will be releasing in April, which is turning out to be quite a hectic month. Let's hope they at least give Pillars II a few weeks distance. Paradox have put together a new trailer, which you can see in the game's latest Kickstarter update. It features Jordan Weisman, Mitch Gitelman and Mike McCain, and is the first in a three-part series of introductory videos:


    BattleTech is now available for preorder on Steam, GOG, or directly from Paradox for the price of $40. There's some sort of silly mech skin preorder bonus, which Kickstarter backers also get of course. You might also be interested in last month's Kickstarter update, which listed some of the features that weren't going to make it for the game's release. Nothing too important I think, unless you really care about fan service cameos in the campaign.

    And unfinished game. Even after all those DLCs.

    I just hope Paradox is only a publisher here and has nothing to say about production or design.

    I really hope they will deliver. Shadowrun games were pretty decent when considered among other indie and they didn't fuck up the setting. Then again, Shadowrun was a pretty low bar.

    Strange decision indeed, don't they expect to cannibalize each other?

    I look forward to the ways in which House Kurita will be demeaned and defamed by HBS, following this line of thought.

    During the last dev Q&A they stated that the Warhammer, Maurauder and Raven would not be in at launch. The Archer and Rifleman were never on the official mech list.

    Raven I'd be willing to forgive because that thing doesn't show up until 3048 at the earliest anyway. Not putting the Whammy and Marauder in is just being fucking chickenshit, unless they seriously think they're going to lose the Harmony Trolld lawsuit. Which, of course, begs the fucking question: why has Microsoft not stepped in and pushed HG's shit in?

    Video says combat and yet again, Beardy McCigar fills it with his ugly face instead.
