MechWarrior Tactics Now in Closed Beta, Founder's Program Available for Purchase

MechWarrior fans are in for a treat. Roadhouse Interactive, A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. Games, and Infinite Games Publishing's turn-based strategy game MechWarrior Tactics is now in closed beta.

Wait, wasn't there just a MechWarrior free-to-play game with Infinite Games Publishing's name on it that went into open beta not too long ago? Yes. Not to be mistaken with MechWarrior Tactics, MechWarrior Online is a FPS mech game in the same vein as the MechWarrior games of the 90's. (You can read our impressions of MechWarrior Online here.)

On the other hand, MechWarrior Tactics is emphasizes strategy and is more up the alley of those that were fans of the board game.

MechWarrior Tactics has also launched its Founders Program, which breaks down into three different payment tiers that players can purchase. This is the same model that MechWarrior Online used, to great success, so it's not surprising that Infinite Games is recycling it.

  • In-game currency in a turn-based game? F-off, a-holes.

  • Unfortunately it uses the Unity Web Player which doesn't have a Linux version yet (the Unity 3D does). Supposedly it can be played on Linux through Chrome/Chromium using a NaCL export.

    There's still MegaMek: http://megamek.info

  • If it plays like Cyberstorm, I might be interested.
