well.. since it's not a gift horse, I'd very much like to have a look into his mouth;
meaning: It'd be nice to see some more details about the game, and the progress that it makes.
continous pics, vids .. something.

also, and this is imo quite important: what good is the MC and extra stuff for mwo for, if you pull the plug on it 2 weeks later?
not saying you do, but some reassurance that mwo a) will continue to exist b.) is being developed on (mechpacks don't count, sorry..) is really needed here.

Not I.
My unit is currently under clan contract.
I personally detest clans.
Not a fan of FW at the moment. Just dabble and scout.
Don't like Death Strike load out. I do like the collectors one.

I jest but hey, you do you.

also deathstrike is strongest laservomit+gauss in-game right now still.

Now it can alpha dual gauss +2large+6medium lasers without overheating.

Alpha-Warrior just isn't my jam.
I quit Gauss after charge up was implemented.
Will always just do me. Thanks!

The value of this is batshit crazy, getting the MWO content and a new game is a bloody steal.
Well done PGI, Ultimate pre-order placed. Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

So is this confirmation that there will be no physical edition (even just a box with a code) for Mechwarrior 5 Mercenaries?

Wow, what a massive disappointment... Posted Image

How long until we can access the Beta (paid or otherwise) without buying all of the extra stuff? I want to participate in the beta, but I don't have $50 to spend on the beta plus about a hundred bucks' worth of other stuff. I mean, they look like great deals if you would be spending money on those things, but I don't have that money.


49.99 USD is the base price of the game so getting it through this Pre-Order will probably be your best option.

The only way it could be cheaper (that I can foresee) are these 2 conditions.

- If You are not in USA and you wait until it is released on steam and you take advantage of regional pricing (missing the beta)

- If You are in the USA You wait until it is released... Then wait even longer... then it goes on sale... then you buy it (missing the beta and the launch)

What I am saying is this. This is the best possible way to purchase this to get the beta AND you get a bunch of MWO stuff!

Hope this helps!

So um I was there for MWO release day and had played beta and it was underwhelming and didnt change anything just one day was beta the next live with no new promised content. There was no faction, no clan, it was 8v8 with few maps and almost always the lava one, I left and 5 years later get an email to get free mechs if I played one match in dec 2018 so I did and I like the game now. So I guess in 5 years I might look into this new game because that is how long it takes them to program all the decent content into it.

Done. Can I start playing?

OK, I know it will take at least 8 months for that. ;~(

PS: should be the Crusader or Wasp/Stinger combo instead.

You got that right! And if anyone should like a Marauder, it would have been me.

Stupid question: you guys previously(on mechcon) mentioned that release ETA would be fall 2019.Right now If we are talking about fall will it be CBT, or a full release?

Wow this truely is a huge package! It's like a late X-mas gift.
The Marauder II is a beast and the extra MC, premium time, skill points etc. are great.

What makes me nervous is the strange kind of cross-promotion. You give a huge bonus to your main target group which, probably, give you money for Mercenaries anyway. So why do you do this and why with such a huge bonus?
Do you plan to go on with MWO give it an engine update in the future or anything to enliven it with new players?
Or will Mercenaries be packed full with DLC stuff and F2P items and you try to draw players from one game to the other?

As I've my fun with MWO I will get the ultimate package soon. Thumbs up.

Hi,

so there is no chance to get a retail version of MW5? Maybe a big box release or something like a collectors edition with a IS Mech statue or something. It would look nice next to my Battletech, MW and Mech Commanders boxes.

Would be great to see something like that!

Well, standart edition would be tempting for me, but as there is not even some sort of hardware requirements, I'll pass on this one.
Why should I buy a game which I perhaps cannot run on my current PC?

This "Options" (somehow implicating that missing the Beta or the release will be a bad thing in my life) leave something like a bad taste in my mouth... Well, call me old, but not only Pepperidge Farm remembers the days, when a game was completely finished before it came out and when a Beta-Test was really about testing and not about having the "I was here in Beta"-Character it has nowadays. I really don't care about comparing my digital ego...

And also, it's a single-player game with coop (optional) and no PvP, so at least from my side time is working for me and I'll take my chance with waiting. Too many Pre-Orders in the past made me sceptical to any Pre-Order at all.

This. Knock something up that has actual things in it as opposed to a load of digital content with no intrinsic value.
