Battletech's First Expansion Announced
The first expansion for Paradox Interactive's BattleTech got announced today, and it's called Flashpoint. You can learn the details of the expansion in a new video narrated by the game's director, Mitch Gitelman. You can pre-order this expansion now for $19.99 before it releases on November 27.
In Flashpoint, players will have the opportunity to take part in multi-mission contracts that bring them into direct conflict with the Great Houses. Gitelman shares that these contracts should tack on an additional 30 hours to BattleTech's post-game content. Each contract forces the player to face a command decision and includes a bonus item when completed.
This expansion also includes three new mech types players can use, a new mission type, and a new biome.
For those die-hard fans dedicated to playing BattleTech, you can choose to purchase the game's season pass for $49.99. The season pass includes the Flashpoint DLC, and the two other planned expansions when the release.
If you purchase the season pass before October 25, you'll receive an additional 20% off your total. The discount brings the total down to $39.99.
Not enough for you? Paradox made an even bigger bundle called the super-deluxe Mercenary Collection. In this collection, you'll get access to the Deluxe Digital Edition and the season pass. You can buy this version now for $89.99.
