Infinite Game Publishing and Piranha Games have announced that MechWarrior Online will be coming to PC’s in late 2012. MechWarrior online will be a free to play online MMO that features highly customizable giant mechs with many of the classic Mechs and weaponry. Players will join one of five Mech houses and battle for wealth, notoriety and territorial control. Players will also be able to customize the weaponry, upgrades and appearance of their mechs allowing you to create a customized Battlemech to suit your playstyle. You will even be able to customize the interiors of the Mechs and view the inside from the cockpit while in game!
It seems improvements have been made to the series as well as new additions to make this franchise even greater. Hopefully the team working on this one can bring the game back to some of its roots and make the awesome game MechWarrior fans have been waiting for. Too bad late 2012 is a year away!

Posted this on FB a few days ago. I already reserved my pilot name.
I reserved mine also. Looks interesting.
I'm a major Mekhead (mektek fan) and I love Mechwarrior. MWIV is actually free through MTX(assuming they have their server farm back up) and is still a fun play
YES YES OH GOD YES...
*ahem* This is the best news ever! Finally a Battletech-Online game! :)
Oh, and that Atlas and Hunchback are just too cool for words. That Jenner also looks mint. :)
just in case you're wondering, Mechwarrior IV is back up on MTX but you have to use the torrents because the server farm is incredibly downgraded, but back up. You can easily play this through tunngle or hamachi. I preffer tunngle if you want to play with me n.n
hmm... What would the tags be if it gets a Horizon Team? MW already means Modern Warfare....
Would be [ME]?
Since it IS in the BattleTech Universe...
First we need to drum up interest. I'm interested in playing it. Who else is?
some info on the BT universe in case anyone is interested(re-reading it)
Up until recently I played in the AOD MWO division, they have started recruiting on a mass scale, when I left they had recruited more than 80 people including some former TAW members who were hoping TAW would start a division. About 20 of those 80 are active.
I have seen 2 threads on TAW for those interested in MWO, seems to be enough people to make at least a lance.
Any chance TAW will make an MWO division?
MW isnt taken here in TAW. Call of Duty: Mordern Warfare (X) goes under the abbrevation CD, so MW would work just fine.
Some ppl are giving away spare beta keys for mech warrior online, just found this article now so may be too late :)
Playing and enjoying it alot :) - can say that since founder ^^
