If HBS's Battletech is anything to go by, it'll include some new maps, a couple of new objectives for missions and an option to ignore the main quest and simply go about farming mechs and equipment to complete challenges like "Collect all the chassis", "Get pilots maxed out", blah blah before a certain time period is complete. It might even come with something similar to Flashpoints but I highly doubt that.

Russ mentioned a career mode last time he was on vid with an update to MW5. Nothing specific IIRC was mentioned.

Oh.. ok.. Are we sure he was not talking about a MOD that has the same name?

It's nothing new. Battletech had Roguetech long before HBS released a Career mode and put in some challenges to go with it.

Nope I am not sure, as allways with Russ Posted Image
Sometimes I feel like Russ realy likes Battletech/Mechwarrior but he just isn't the right person for giveing directions on gamedesign etc. Maybe he should stick with getting contracts for the company and managment stuff.

As for the Mod...didn't know that there was one like that. Nice....maybe I will not wait till the official mode?
On the other hand I have lots of other games to play and it shouldn't be to long till the patch comes. March I think it was?

DLC is scheduled for April. For all we know, this could mean April 30th.

Has anyone mentioned any pricing for the DLC or will it be free?

How much would they price it do you guys think?

I don't remember anything said about prices but that dosn't mean anything.
I hope the career mode will be free as it should have been part of the game from the start and is something that was promised in a way at the beginning of the development with "You can choose your starting point and get faction specific mechs to start with".

Essentially, yes. Same as campaign, only without the campaign but with new chained contracts and map zones which may or may not be present in a campaign. Some new tech as well, but nothing groundbreaking.

Remember that the global pandemic might have negative impact on the DLC release date.
