By now you may be excited at the prospect of so many mech games coming out this year, and here is a little more to add to that fire. There will be two entries in the MechWarrior franchise this year, MechWarrior Online and MechWarrior Tactics, and this post concerns the latter. Some new screenshots of MechWarrior Tactics have been released, and they show off why the game has Tactics in the title. MechWarrior Tactics is a turn-based game set on a hexagonal battlefield. You position your troops how you see fit, get the game going, and then battle others from across the world. You can even fight multiple battles at the same time, with you or other players taking a turn whenever you have the time. Now you will not have to sit down and play an entire game at once, but get a game going before work or school, play a little on your lunch break, and then finish once you get back home.
MechWarrior Tactics will be available later this year for the PC. It will be a free-to-play game, just like all the other mech games due out this year. Be sure to head to the MechWarrior Tactics website to register your commander name if you have not done so already.
