MechWarrior Online Open Beta Starting on Monday, This Time for Real

on October 26, 2012 6:16 PM

The MechWarrior Online open beta was initially planned for October the 16th, but was pushed back in order to show a better and more polished game to the many that will try it. Back then Piranha games specified that delay wouldn’t be long, and they kept their promise, as the new phase of testing, open to all, will start this monday, October the 29th, at noon PDT.

If you’re ready to try some online action that definitely feels different than the usual FPS, you’ll be able to just register on the official site and download the game, keeping in mind that it’s still a beta.

On the other hand, I’m definitely ready to welcome some new targets, so if you see me in a match (the nickname is the usual: Abriael), smile as I line up my Gauss Cannon with your face and open a new vent in your Mech.

You know, overheating is always a big problem in MechWarrior games. I’m actually doing you a favor. Really.
