Infinite Game Publishing and Piranha Games have announced that MechWarrior Online will begin its open beta on October 16. The game takes place in the year 3049, at the beginning of an interstellar war, and that puts you at the controls of a powerful war machine, a Battlemech. Command your Mech and customize it to suit your battlefield role; upgrade systems, replace weapons, and tweak armor with endless options.

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of the fans over the course of our closed beta period,” said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. “The amazing fans and the high quality feedback given to our team have helped us craft MechWarrior Online into a true MechWarrior gameplay experience. We’re more than excited to open up the game and look forward to continuing to expand the InnerSphere with our loyal fans.
