Greetings Mercenaries,

We are excited to announce the new expansion pack for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries coming out on September 23rd 00:00 UTC!


Legend of the Kestrel Lancers will launch alongside the MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries PlayStation release and bring with it another free game-changing update to the base game!

Check out this Feature Preview Trailer for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries - Legend of the Kestrel Lancers!


Legend of the Kestrel Lancers features:

Experience an Epic Linear Campaign - Fight in battles set during the famous Inner Sphere conflict and experience first-hand the frontlines of the 4th Succession War with 14 new campaign missions featuring unique mechanics, authored missions, and custom dialogue and cinematics.

All-out War - Experience All-Out-War scenarios with large-scale expansive combat in 7 new questlines that include 10 new "battle" scenarios. Available throughout the Inner Sphere

Megacity Urban Combat - Experience intense urban combat in large, all-city settings with massive destruction, procedural city blocks, featuring 5 new procedural mission variants Scorched Earth, Objective Raid, Targeted Kill, Guard Duty, and Battlefield.

New Biomes and Garrisons - Battle in new Megacity, Jungle, and Tourmaline Desert biomes, and discover new Garrisons including Orbital Guns and a new 'Mech Factory featuring MW5's first indoor play space.

23 New Mech Variants and new Patterns to collect and Customize.

Free Game Update Features

- These features update the base game and Hereos of the Inner Sphere and change the MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries experience.

Melee Combat - New melee combat with the ability to damage enemy 'Mechs with your ‘Mech fists. Direct your punches to different locations and Punch your enemy right...in...the...face. Great for close-quarters combat and an effective attack option when your 'Mech is running hot.

Mech Switching - New ability to switch player control to any of the AI-controlled Lance 'Mechs. Switch to your fastest 'Mech to scout ahead, jump into your LRM boat to provide cover fire, swap to your brawler for some intense up-close action, and then switch back to your fast 'Mech for a quick evac.


We will have more News and Information on MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries newest Expansion, The free update, and PlayStation Release over the coming week.

This is very cool news. The physical attacks are the more welcome part of it. Side thought, is it only punching or is kicking also supported?


Also, any ETA on the Sept event? And there was a brief mention last week of a Tourny themed sale of some kind. Is that still green light?
