Free Stomp: Mechwarrior Now In Open Beta


Yes, as we'd been anticipating, Mechwarrior Online is now in open beta, which means it can be played for free, without restriction. I've been enjoying it a fair bit in the past couple of weeks, but then I am a sucker for both robots and multiplayer combat, so it could pretty much have been designed with me in mind. I would say that it hasn't exactly held my attention for long periods - unlike Planetside 2, for example - so it's lacking something in the long-term reward sense. It also offers a fascinating contrast with Hawken, the faster-paced, jetpack-heavy robo-deathmatcher that's in closed beta right now (but should soon hit for free).

I've posted one of the community-made trailers below. It's quite good.
