Mechwarrior Online Closed Beta Begins

The closed Beta for Mechwarrior Online, the upcoming free to play action MMO set in the Mechwarrior/Battletech Universe, begins this week. People interested in tromping about a beautiful landscape (courtesy of CryENGINE 3) in 100 ton bipedal war machines can sign up for the beta here.

Additionally, while Mechwarrior Online is free to play, Piranha Games and Infinite Game Publishing have released details on two paid “founder’s packages,” collectively dubbed OPERATION INCEPTION, that will guarantee early access to the game. Other perks included faster XP gain, an exclusive custom Mech, and a “Founder’s Tag” in game.

$60 ELITE Founder’s Package Includes:

  • Exclusive custom “Founder’s BattleMech.” This Mech includes a lifetime, per-match C-Bill booster.
  • $80 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.
  • Two-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.
  • Founder’s Tag – sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.
  • Early access to the game along with Founder’s assets availability starts July 17th.

$30 VETERAN Founder’s Package Includes:

  • $40 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.
  • One-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.
  • Founder’s Tag – sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.
  • Early access to the game along with Founder’s assets availability starts July 17th.

OPERATION INCEPTION assets and early game access will be available for ELITE or VETERAN package players starting July 17th.

Reserve your pilot name at www.mwomercs.com.

*For in-game currency, Founders’ accounts will be credited beginning July 17th with a non-refundable amount of in-game currency equivalent to the retail cost set out in each package above ($40 value for VETERAN Founders, $80 value for ELITE Founders), and those credits may be used for in-game purchases of virtual items only. The closed beta and OPERATION INCEPTION assets will enjoy support only in North America.
