BattleTech Gets Heavy Metal with New Expansion
Harebrained Schemes and Paradox Interactive have announced the third expansion to their tactical RPG BattleTech. Titled Heavy Metal, the expansion will add more mechs, weapon systems, and a new Flashpoint mini-campaign.
Eight new mechs will be added to the game, seven returning from the series’ history and one entirely new one. Also available will be eight new weapon systems, including the Mech Mortar, the first AOE weapon in the game, and the COIL Beam, a weapon that generates more power the more a mech has moved in the round. Finally, the new Flashpoint will put players against two legendary BattleTech characters, the Bounty Hunter and the Black Widow.
Heavy Metal will be available on PC on November 21, 2019, either as part of the game’s Season Pass or for the price of $19.99/£15.49/€19.99.
