Hairbrained Schemes, the company that brought out the successful Shadowrun Kickstarter just launched a new Kickstarter campaign for Battletech. Set in the era between the 3rd and 4th Succession Wars this game is a turn based tactical Battletech game. It will try to recapture the style of play found in the original table top Battletech game, this time on a PC Platform. They have raised at the publication of this post just over $1,000,000. This means that the Battletech Game will be made, now it is just a matter to see how much extra content will be developed. Each additional Kickstarter goal over $250,000 will bring additional content and features to the game. You can keep track of the Kickstarter campaign here.
I look forward to this game and I hope that enough is raised for the Player versus Player (PVP) game mode to be developed. I really do enjoy setting my tactics and skills against another player. That is one of the things that drew me to Mechwarrior Online and it’s PVP style of warfare.
