Microsoft's Mech Mercenaries

Mechwarrior 4 spin-off on the way

Mech Assault might be bringing the Battletech universe to the Xbox for the first time, but that doesn't mean the end of the more traditional PC Mechwarrior series. The latest installment in the long-running franchise was unveiled at E3 this week, in the form of Mechwarrior 4 : Mercenaries, a stand-alone spin-off based on the Mechwarrior 4 engine. Developed by Cyberlore Studios, it adds ten new mechs to pilot in more than forty new missions spread across ten worlds, with players able to fight for any of four mercenary groups. "MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries takes fans back to one of the most popular gaming themes in the 'Mech universe: playing for cold hard cash", producer TJ Wagner pronounced. "By combining the soldier-of-fortune gameplay of Mercenaries and the stunning MechWarrior 4 game engine, we've created the ultimate 'Mech game that fans have been asking for." Expect Mercenaries to be stomping their way on to store shelves this autumn. Related Feature - Mechwarrior 4 : Mercenaries screenshots
