Greeting Mechwarriors,

It has been officially announced that Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries will now be releasing on December 10th 2019 exclusively on the Epic Games Store.
Community Pre-order pilots will be able to access the Closed Beta to access practice missions in November, prior to the game’s full launch.

Our partnership with Epic Games store allows us the opportunity to make sure MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries meets our internal goal of creating the best MechWarrior game possible.

Fans looking to obtain refunds from their pre-order of any tier are able to do so by September 1st. Pre-order refunds of any tier will be refunded in full. Additionally, those seeking refunds will be able to keep all bonus MechWarrior Online content from the Standard, Collector and Ultimate Editions of the pre-order, which amount to $100, $180, and $300 dollars worth of in-game currency and content for MechWarrior Online including all bonus items like XP, premium time, badges, decals, cockpit items and more, depending on which pre-order tier purchased.

However, refunded pre-orders will forfeit their access to the full game and be unable to participate in the upcoming closed beta for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, now scheduled for November as well as lose the exclusive MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries DLC items.

For more details on MW5 or refunds, check out the FAQ on our MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries website.

The preordered need to make an Epic Game Store account or do we get the game over the MW5 website?

Well, I guess at least you're allowing full refunds. Still, surprisingly, uh, brave move, what with all the hate making such a decision is earning other companies.

Is there no way to buy the game without having to go through some other vendor? I don't really want to have to deal with some other launcher every time I want to play the game...least of all Epic!

Let me be the first to state that PGI will never see a cent of my money for participating in this anti-consumer action.

Disgusting, utterly disgusting.

You advertised to all of us that we were purchasing a steam copy of the game with our pre-order.

I paid for a steam copy, you OWE me a steam copy.

For ****'s sake. I understand that Epic is just giving away money for free. But I truly think this will hurt not just the Game but the whole franchise in the long run...a lot.
