Mecha Warrior 5: The Legend of Kestrel will be available on Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store on September 23. There is enough time to smash the mecha. The expansion pack also introduces new jungle and desert biomes and mega cities, the latter (according to the developer Piranha Games) are “significantly” larger urban playgrounds that you will undoubtedly smash into pieces.
During the Fourth Succession War, Kestrel Lancers was an independent campaign. In addition to new all-out war scenarios and procedurally generated missions, there were 14 missions and 7 battle scenarios on custom maps. The expansion pack will not add any new mechas, but will come with more than 20 mecha variants—essentially new mecha loads.
Piranha Games also plans to release a free update to add some features to the base game. Melee has finally become a thing that gives you the ability to swing your mech and slam anything that gets too close. You can also switch between your mech and any AI-controlled mech during the mission.
This message is accompanied by a very short 15-second trailer. However, I assure you that it is worth seeing. It opens at the wedding and then zooms out to show… MECH WEDDING GUESTS. good stuff.
in our Mecha Warrior 5 comments, We gave this game a rating of 80/100, calling it “the best new mecha smash simulator at the time”, but regretted its description.
“MechWarrior 5 is a game that can overcome its narrative dilemma, because, I must admit, the narrative is too thin, and the gameplay completely surpasses it,” we wrote. “There is no doubt that MW5 is a game about becoming a sandbox mecha jockey, and the story is just a low-quality finish of some excellent robot battles.”
As the focus shifts to the story in the Kestrel Lancers legend, I hope we can get some storytelling that matches the mechanical chaos.
