Paradox Interactive and Harebrained Schemes announced that the very first expansion for BATTLETECH is on its way.
BATTLETECH is getting a brand-new expansion, and it comes with some exciting additions. The BATTLETECH FLASHPOINT expansion is coming with three new Mechs including the Hatchetman, a challenging new mission type, and a new tropical biome along with Flashpoint stories.
Flashpoints are short stories that are comprised of mercenary missions linked together with new crew conversations, special events, critical choices, and valuable rewards. To make Flashpoint stories more interesting, some stories will feature “Consecutive Deployments” in which players won’t be able to repair their Mechs between missions. Proper strategy will be the key to survival as will ensuring your Mech doesn’t take a lot of damage. CEO and Creator of BattleTech Jordan Weisman had this to say about Flashpoints:
“These more elaborate, longer-term objectives are an awesome interactive storytelling tool, which we think BATTLETECH fans will really enjoy,”
Fans of BATTLETECH also have a new encounter called Target Acquisition to look forward to with the BATTLETECH FLASHPOINT expansion. Target Acquisition will put your small and medium Mechs to good use by taking control of three territories on the map to come out as the victor.
The BATTLETECH FLASHPOINT expansion releases in November for PC.
