Founding: Pay For Mechwarrior Online Now, If You Want?

The vigilant newsbots at BluesNews have noticed that Mechwarrior Online is rolling out a program of “founders packages” for people to purchase in-game cash and privileges in the forth-coming free-to-play mech game. Full details and some comments, as well as a big chunk of recent game footage, below.

Mechwarrior Online has been in beta since the middle of May, and there’s no word on when that will expand, exactly. That said, this Founders’ Package stuff gets you access from August 7th, so perhaps not too long after that.

$120 but you get $80 worth of in game currency? Hmm! I suppose the premium account stuff will end up being worth it, allowing players to advance and earn money faster. But we shall see.

$120 LEGENDARY Founder’s Package Includes:

• All 4 exclusive “Founder’s BattleMechs.” These Mechs include a lifetime, per-match C-Bill booster.

• $80 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.

• Three-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.

• Founder’s Tag – sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.

• Game credits – The player’s name included as one of the “Legendary” in the MechWarrior Online game credits.

• Early access to the game along with Founder’s assets availability starts August 7th.

$60 ELITE Founder’s Package Includes:

• One exclusive custom “Founder’s BattleMech.” This Mech includes a lifetime, per-match C-Bill booster.

• $80 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.

• Two-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.

• Founder’s Tag – sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.

• Early access to the game along with Founder’s assets availability starts August 7th.

$30 VETERAN Founder’s Package Includes:

• $40 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.

• One-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.

• Founder’s Tag – sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.

• Early access to the game along with Founder’s assets availability starts August 7th.

I’m very interested in getting my hands on this after having spent a few months in Perpetuum. To get to some robot fighting that is first-person and more skill-led is going to be an interesting contrast, even if the MMO and meta-game elements look like they have the potential to be pretty thin.

And here’s IGN’s huge slice of game footage:
