About MechWarrior 5
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is a BattleTech mecha game developed by Piranha Games and released on December 10, 2019 on Windows. It is a first-person shooter game, the latest sequel to the MechWarrior series.
Some people may know about MechWarrior. The first MechWarrior was released in 1989, and then MechWarrior 2 in 1995, MechWarrior 3 in 1999, and MechWarrior 4 in 2000. MechWarrior 5 is the first single player MechWarrior game since 2002.
The background of MechWarrior was built in the 31st century in the future. At that time, huge walking robots powered by nuclear fusion, known as BattleMechs, became the masters of the battlefield.
These BattleMechs are equipped with vehicles like tanks, starships, fighter jets, etc., and weapons like lasers, particle projection cannons, gauss rifles, automatic cannons, missiles, etc. Apparently, the main axis of the game is the battle between BattleMechs and various stories about BattleMechs.
As for MechWarrior 5, its background is set in 3015. At that time, human life has expanded to the universe and colonized a vast planet Inner Sphere. There used to be peace here, but after countless wars and betrayals, Inner Sphere has been divided into five different successor nations.
These successor nations have also fought for centuries, and they are now in the final decade of the third succession war that lasted for 150 years. The war goes all the way up to 3049, just before the Clan Invasion.
In the game, players play as a rookie mercenary MechWarrior rising from the ashes of a demolished mercenary unit. They are able to accept contracts from the various factions available in this time period.
