Battletech comes out in April

Stomp stomp.

Battletech launches on 24th April 2018, publisher Paradox has announced.

The turn-based tactical mech combat PC game is developed by Harebrained Schemes, the studio behind the Shadowrun Returns series. Harebrained Schemes raised an impressive $2.8m on Kickstarter from just over 41,000 backers back in November 2015. Two-and-a-half years later, Battletech is nearly ready for launch.

Here's the official blurb:

In Battletech, you play as the commander of a mercenary company on the edges of civilised space, negotiating and executing a variety of combat contracts while attempting to keep your 'Mechwarriors happy and your operations prosperous.

The game's story features the player falling in with the deposed ruler of a noble house and, fighting for either coin or cause, becoming a player in her bid to retake her throne.

Battletech is due out on PC and Mac priced 34.99.
