BattleTech reboot launches on Kickstarter, meets funding goal within one hour

Shadowrun: Hong Kong developer Harebrained Schemes launched the Kickstarter for it turn-based tactical reboot of BattleTech today, and the project met its funding goal within one hour.

With 35 days left, 4,347 backers have already pledged $335,789, smashing the initial goal of $250,000 goal.

The developer is seeking funding in three stages, with two more parts left in stage one yet to be funded. It'll get there though, obviously. Should the project hit the $1 million mark, a single-player campaign will be included. At $1.85 million an expanded mercenary campaign will be added, and $2.5 million will ensure PvP multiplayer.

BattleTech is set during the 3025 BattleTech Succession Wars Era, which is often referred to as "Classic BattleTech". The developer has already put $1 million into the game which will ensure the Skirmish mode which is now in pre-production on PC.
