No GravatarmechA new MechWarrior game has been announced and it will be returning to the series single player roots.

Announced at MechCon 2016, Piranha Games is taking MechWarrior back to its singleplayer roots with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. Slated for a 2018 release, Piranha Games president Russ Bullock took the stage to reveal the first footage of MechWarrior 5, which is being developed using Unreal Engine 4. You can watch that demo in the video above and head over to for more info.

Though details are scarce, what we do know is that MechWarrior 5 is a completely standalone singleplayer game being developed by Piranha Games using a separate team than the one currently supporting MechWarrior Online, its multiplayer-only CryEngine game that went into open beta in 2012. MechWarrior 5 will feature “intense PvE ‘Mech combat in an immersive, career-based Mercenary campaign driven by player choice.”

This is great news for fans of the series, especially those who felt alienated by MechWarrior online.
