Mechwarrior Online’s latest update adds plenty of new features but we’re all about the amusingly named new mech.

The Pretty Baby, features in the screens and trailer below, is a new Hero Mech available for purchase. It weighs 80 tons, and has a 340 XL engine with a torso twist of 100 degrees on each side. Its top speed is 68 mph and it has 19 double heat sinks.

The update paid a lot of attention to Match features, adding pre-round screening, an in-game scoreboard, a Death Screen, an end of round screen, pre-match chat and performance and contribution analysis.

The Tiger Mech pattern is back, too, and Camo Specs have been ramped up with new customisation options. Full details of the update are available from the horse’s mouth.
