BattleTech is going to happen.


The BattleTech Kickstarter campaign is winding down, having hit its $250,000 goal on launch day.

With $2.5 million in its coffers, the campaign has pulled ten times its goal and locked down every single stretch goal so far.

Over 37,000 people have pledged to support the turn-based tactical mech combat game, which isn’t terribly surprising. Not only is the property a firm favourite, this latest version comes to us from Harebrained Schemes, which has twice proven it can deliver on a Kickstarter campaign with Shadowrun Returns and its first expansion.

If you’re not au fait with BattleTech, you should be warned: it’s a bit of a rabbit hole. The MechWarrior series was spun off from it, and is really only the beginning of a sprawling franchise encompassing tabletop games, over 100 books, numerous video games and even a cartoon series.

If you’re keen on the new project, check out the various rewards on offer on the Kickstarter page.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
