During Mech_Con 2017, developer Piranha Games announced that MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will feature four-player co-op, as well as full modding and Steam Workshop support.
The co-op mode will enable players to “host up to three friends inside their campaign universe, running missions together as a coordinated lance under the banner of the host’s mercenary suit.”
Full mod support will “[empower] fans to customize their own missions, contracts, planetary systems, biomes, and much more, via powerful toolsets and Steam Workshop integration.”
Check out the new trailer below:
The year is 3015. The Great Houses of the Inner Sphere have been waging bitter war for over a century. While the battlefields burn with an array of devastating weaponry, none is more formidable than the BattleMech. Skilled Mercenaries have never been in greater demand, and you aim to make your mark.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will launch sometime in late 2018.
