<whoop! whoop! whoop!> Giant Robot Alert is caused this morning by BattleTech. Catalyst Game Labs has announced a new expansion in the form of BattleTech: Mercenaries. This new set will be headed to Kickstarter next year and there’s going to be a big launch event at Adepticon.
From the article:
The next exciting chapter of BattleTech history will launch March 23, 2023 at AdeptiCon in Schaumburg, IL!
In 2018, Catalyst Game Labs built upon the thirty-five-year legacy of BattleTech with the release of the A Game of Armored Combat and Beginner Box sets. Those boxed sets included re-imagined miniatures which retained the core of each ’Mech’s identity, updated with modern aesthetics. Upon that foundation, our Clan Invasion Kickstarter unleashed nearly one hundred additional miniatures and finished among the top 100 Kickstarter campaigns ever. By the end of this year, more than four million high quality, affordable, ready-to-play plastic ’Mech miniatures will have hit gaming tables in just four years.
The next chapter of BattleTech’s titanic resurgence will be the Mercenaries Kickstarter campaign. The new campaign will introduce more than 50 new designs, including ’Mechs, armored and support vehicles, a VTOL, additional battle armor, and a new aerospace fighter–all to the same high-quality standards and ready to play right out of the box.
We are beyond excited to officially announce that Catalyst Game Labs and AdeptiCon have partnered to launch the BattleTech: Mercenaries Kickstarter on March 23rd, 2023, 10 a.m. Central/11 a.m. Eastern–the first day of AdeptiCon. We’ll be livestreaming throughout the weekend, including the campaign’s launch, Q&A sessions, developer interviews, actual-play events, and more!
