MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Pre-Order Bonuses Revealed

The release of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is still months away, but Piranha Games has recently outlined the perks players will receive for pre-ordering.

With the release of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries this upcoming September, Piranha Games will put an end to a more than 20 year absence of a single-player MechWarrior title. For fans that are already certain that they will want to pickup the new game, Piranha has recently outlined the perks that are available for pre-ordering it.

There are currently three pre-order tiers for players that want to reserve their copies of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries in advance. Not only do these tiers offer bonuses that are applicable to the upcoming release, they also come with rewards that can be redeemed in the multiplayer MechWarrior Online, which has been available since 2013.

To note, Piranha has indicated that these pre-order opportunities will be available for a "limited-time," but the company has not confirmed when pre-orders will close. Until then, the available bonuses are as follows:

Notable amongst these offerings is the beta access that comes with all three pre-order tiers. While it appears that this closed testing phase will not be available until August, fans that want to experience MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries as soon as possible may be happy to see this as an option.

Furthermore, there seems to be a great deal of value in the MechWarrior Online bonuses that come through pre-ordering. Players that spring for the $120 Community Edition, for example, are set to receive almost $230 worth of perks to be redeemed in the multiplayer MechWarrior.

To coincide with the announcement of these pre-order bonuses, Piranha has also released the new trailer featured above. This video gives a look at MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries' gameplay, which the company states is modeled after MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries, and it may entice some to jump on a pre-order sooner rather than later.

Players interested in pre-ordering a copy of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries can do so on the game's website.
