The BattleTech board game has surged to new heights of interest over the last several years following Catalystâ€™s launch of the new line of core rulebooks and the hot-selling 25th Anniversary Introductory Box Set. However, for long, long years one of the most enjoyable ways to experience BattleTech, the computer games, was absent.
Thatâ€™s changed like the hammer-blow of a Particle Projector Cannon with the coming of MechWarrior Online (www.mwomercs.com) developed by Piranha Games, Inc. and MechWarrior Tactics (www.mwtactics.com) developed by Roadhouse Interactive and A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. Games. Both games are published by Infinite Game Publishing. â€™Mech madness has stormed fans around the globe with hot anticipation for the launching of these two premium titles.
But what books are coming next for the board game? And what will MechWarrior Tactics really be like to play?
The best place to find out about all the excitement ahead for BattleTech/MechWarrior is at the Gen Con â€œWhatâ€™s up With BattleTech?â€ seminar. In this seminar, Randall N. Bills, Catalyst Game Labs Managing Developer, and Herb Beas, the BattleTech Boardgame Line Developer, will be joined by Chris Cleroux, Lead Designer for MechWarrior Tactics!
Where: Indiana Convention Center, room 243
When: Friday, August 17th, 11:00 AM
Come check it out and find out all thatâ€™s in store for all MechWarriors!
