Robots. Large robots. It has always been my dream to live long enough to see the day I would get to battle large robots while I was in a large robot. Sadly, robot technology is lagging behind my dreams, and Elon Musk seems focused on pumping money into space travel. Why is he not funding large robot technology? Inquiring minds want to know.
Until I find a suitable billionaire patron, who can make my robot dreams come through, I guess I will always have Battletech. Battletech is a tactical mech combat game from Harebrained Schemes, and oh boy am I excited for this one. I was a big fan of the tabletop game it is based on in my younger years, and I look forward to once again getting back to smashing lumps out of big robots.
Battletech will see you leading a company of mercenaries, and joining forces with a deposed Queen in an attempt to return her to the throne. It seems to be quite open ended though, as you can end up working for many factions within the game. We have had videos about the combat and the mercenary campaign, so it is nice to see some detail about the story. I can’t speak for everyone, but I like to at least pretend to have a reason to distribute large robot lumps across the landscape.
Battletech is due to release on April 24, so thankfully we don’t have much longer to wait until we can start enjoying giant robot fights. The game will be available on Steam and is available for pre-order now.
