Piranha Games Inc., the developers of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, have announced their latest title would include crossplay with the Xbox Series X|S, Steam, and GOG. The game was previously released on Epic Games in December 2019, and now after it's year of exclusivity it's being released everywhere else with the aforementioned crossplay and with over 30 new enhanced features.
“The MechWarrior community feedback has been vital for the 30+ quality-of-life updates and new content at launch,” said Russ Bullock, President and Executive Producer at Piranha Games. “We’ve strived to meet fan expectations for what a MechWarrior experience is with this release – including a new co-op cross-platform experience, base game price drop, and DLC content with the ability to join a friend for free – and look forward to hearing from them on May 27.”
Mech warriors can look forward to co-op as well in the upcoming Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC Career Mode campaign. Players who don't own the DLC will be able to play with those that do own it, which is a nice touch. The game itself will feature four-player PvE co-op support on PC (Steam, GOG, Epic) and Xbox.
To celebrate the launch of MechWarriors 5 on other platforms, the base price has also been dropped to €29.99 / £24.99 / $29.99. There will also be some goodies given to the PC and Xbox platforms, with a custom load-out and paint job, plus a new Goblin AI pilot with all-new dialogue.
