Piranha Games, developers of the currently live Mechwarrior Online, have announced a new game in the series at Mech Con 2016. It’s called Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries and it’s going to bring what fans have been asking for: a single-player campaign.
The game takes place in the Third Succession War. You play as a rookie pilot and you’ll be able to take contracts from the different factions. Like the free-to-play multiplayer game, action will happen from a first-person perspective, from the inside of a Battlemech.
