Piranha Games' free-to-play MechWarrior Online is now officially live as the beta period ends. A launch patch has been set loose with an invitational tournament dated September 26th.
Fans of MechWarrior action can look forward to "regular semi-monthly" patches with a "full slate of expansion features coming" in 2014. UI overhaul still in the works.
Private matches remain on their dev radar, as well as levels and ranking systems. Creatable and customisable mercenary units, Clan tech and more is cooking.
"With launch officially here, players can expect MechWarrior to continue to storm ahead with regular semi-monthly patches for the foreseeable future,” posted creative director Bryan Ekman.
“We have a full slate of expansion features coming out during the next year, which include our new entire re-envisioned user interface, private matches, level and rank system, the ability for players to join and create custom mercenary units, new game modes, Clan technology, and the epic battle to control the Inner Sphere.”
New maps Island Metropolis and Moon Base are due October and December respectively. For more information about MechWarrior Online, including their September 26th NA Launch event, visit the .
