At MechCon tonight, developer Piranha Games announced that MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will release in December 2018.
It was also announced that the game will have full mod support integrated with the Steam Workshop and up to four-player co-op.
It's been 17 years since MechWarrior 4, making this one hotly anticipated. Piranha told us that MechWarrior Online fans have been waiting for a campaign experience, and that they want this game to fill that role.
In the campaign, you will take command of a mercenary crew, picking randomized missions across different planets while also following a main quest line as you improve your team.
