The following product has a Street Date of NOVEMBER 24TH, 2010:

A Time of War: The BattleTech RPG, Standard Edition ($49.99)

It is the 31st century. Mankind has spread to the stars and spawned titanic stellar empires, each controlling hundreds of worlds across a thousand light years and beyond. Yet the sins of man have followed him from the cradle of humanity.

Political machinations of feudal lords plunge whole sectors into war; unscrupulous merchant starship captains smuggle weapons to their own faction’s enemies; greedy military commanders demand tribute from worlds they’re protecting; animalistic pirate kings harvest high technologies and human slaves in lightning raids; betrayals from oath-bound allies leave honorable soldiers growing cold on forgotten worlds; death at the tip of knife from a concubine turned assassin to avenge a world and love lost: it is a time of war.

What empire will you swear allegiance to: a warrior merchant of House Steiner; the honorbound samurai of House Kurita; the vat-bred warriors of the Clans; a mercenary that fights only for the highest bidder?

Choose your life in the universe: a MechWarrior piloting the thirty-foot-tall BattleMechs that turn the tide of any battle; a spy deep behind enemy lines discovering critical secrets; a merchant carrying critical supplies; a scientist unleashing the latest cutting edge technologies?

How will YOU become a legend?

Catalyst Game Labs is excited to have the long-await BattleTech RPG on stores shelves in time for Black Friday. Once more, thanks to the community for their patience as we brought this fifth installment to the award-winning core rulebook line to publication.

The announced A Time of War: The BattleTech RPG Limited Edition is running right on schedule directly behind the standard edition. The last author/developer signature has been added to the end sheets and those are off to the printer for final binding; the Limited Edition is on schedule to be on store shelves by Christmas (we’ll announce the specific Street Date when it’s available).

We’re very pleased with the excitement surrounding this rulebook: from the thousand plus PDFs sold of the Open Beta Test and Final version of the PDF this last year, to the over 800 downloads of the newly revised A Time of War Quick-Start Rules PDF off of DriveThruRPG alone in the last seven days, to Catalyst already selling through 2/3rd of its Limited Edition copies it reserved. The siren song of metal titans storming across alien worlds for star-spanning empires is still strong!

The “$99.99 +shipping Pre-order of the standard and Limited Edition versions combo” will end on November 24th, as the regular edition hits retail shelves and those same retailers prepare for the arrival of the remaining Limited Editions in December.

Don’t lose your chance at this great offer!
