Battletech's First Expansion Announced

There's plenty to look forward to in Battletech's first expansion with up to "30 hours of new content" getting added.

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.
