BattleTech: Essentials Boxed Set Coming Soon, Exclusive to Target Stores

Target stores are set to welcome a new addition to their shelves, as Catalyst Game Labs introduces a new BattleTech boxed set, BattleTech: Essentials. This Beginner Box experience provides new players with everything they need to join the world of BattleTech, including two of Solaris’ most iconic ’Mechs, the Legend-Killer and Yen-Lo-Wang, a mapsheet depicting a Game World arena, and quick-start rules to get players right into the action.

Available exclusively through Target stores and on, BattleTech: Essentials can be pre-ordered now, with an estimated shipping date of Sunday, June 18. The boxed set will also be available in Target’s more than 1,900 U.S. stores nationwide on that day.

This boxed set is the perfect starting point for anyone interested in the world of BattleTech, a game filled with epic stories and gaming experiences to satisfy any player, from miniatures to RPG play, hobby painting to fiction and beyond. BattleTech: Essentials includes two high-quality miniatures, quick-start rules, a mapsheet, cards to represent your MechWarrior’s unique skills, dice, and more.

Soldiers from across the Inner Sphere are drawn to the Game World of Solaris VII, where they seek glory, fame, and fortune in live-fire arena combat before rotating back to their empires’ fields of battle. With BattleTech: Essentials, players can take their place among the legends of Solaris VII and seek their own fame and fortune.

At this time, there are no plans to offer this product through the Catalyst Game Labs web store or any other venues than Target. International shipping through Target is not available, but other options may be revisited at a later time.
