YOUR LEGEND AWAITS

It is the 31st Century, a time of endless wars that rage across human-occupied space. As star empires clash, these epic wars are won and lost by BattleMechs, 30-foot-tall humanoid metal titans bristling with lasers, autocannons and dozens of other lethal weapons. Your elite force of MechWarriors pilots these juggernauts into battle, proudly holding your faction's flag high, intent on expanding the power and glory of your realm. Will you become legend, or a lost casualty on a forgotten world? Only you will determine your fate!

SEIZE YOUR DESTINY

BattleTech is one of the greatest and longest-lasting science fiction universes. A "space opera" set in the factional, militarized universe of the thirty-first century. Humanity has spread to the stars and spawned titanic interstellar empires, each controlling hundreds of worlds cross a combined region of space stretching more than a thousand light years...

For thirty-five years, players have immersed themselves in the BattleTech novels and source books, captivated by the dynamic characters and epic events. All while tossing dice and moving miniatures around their tables in an effort to claim victory against their friends. And the adventures only continue...









Risks and challenges

As mentioned above, our #1 challenge will be met with a rigid schedule of development, production, and delivery that will be published to our backers once we know the full scope of the campaign's success.
