Piranha Games announced that MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will launch on PC-exclusively via Epic Games Store on December 10.
“Our partnership with the Epic Games store allows Piranha the opportunity to make sure MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries meets our internal goal of creating the best MechWarrior game possible,” said Russ Bullock, executive producer. “Since we announced the development of the first single-player MechWarrior game in 17 years, we have stated that our goal was to deliver to fans a MechWarrior: Mercenaries experience with true freedom of choice and to be able to share that experience in a coop setting. Understandably some fans will be disappointed that they have to wait a short while longer for MechWarrior 5, but it’s important to Piranha Games that we absolutely get this right. We are happy to say that our new partnership with Epic Games store allows us the time and ability to accomplish our goals both in the games development and marketing efforts.”
Fans looking to obtain refunds from their preorder can do so by September 1. During that time, buyers can refund any edition of the game that was purchased. However, this will remove the player from the upcoming Closed Beta, which is scheduled to launch in November via the Epic Games Store, with more information to come soon.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries borrows the gameplay from MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries, which grants players the freedom to run their campaigns how they choose. Players will be able to pilot, construct, and maintain their own mercenary unit over a multi-year campaign during the Third and Fourth Succession Wars.
