Piranha Games’ latest content update for free-to-play MMO MechWarrior Online is hefty indeed. The star billing is shared by the new Tourmaline Desert and Jagermech, but a new Testing Grounds area has been added, too, allowing you to check out new gear and features before wandering into battle. You may want to take advantage of this, as Piranha has added a bunch of optional control tweaks, such as a gas pedal, a torso to legs centre, and better joystick support. On top of that, there’s a pile of consumables and cosmetic items, and a leaderboard challenge.
