In a new video posted this morning, publishers Paradox Interactive and Harebrained Schemes have confirmed that BattleTech will launch sometime in April.
The date was included as part of the description for a new video on Paradox Interactive's YouTube channel. It's the first video on the publisher's channel of the mecha strategy game since Paradox assumed publishing duties for BattleTech, although it doesn't add any additional information that hasn't been covered in previous videos or livestreams.
Paradox also revealed that BattleTech would be priced at $US39.99 for those who didn't back the original KickStarter campaign. For a better idea of how the game plays out, below is some footage of the campaign, posted shortly before Christmas.
The Steam page also recommends users have 16GB of RAM and a relatively decent PC, along with 60GB of storage space.
Processor: Intel Pentium Core i5 3450 3.10GHz or AMD FX 6300 3.5GHz
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 or AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series
Storage: 60 GB available space
BattleTech will be available through Steam and GOG when it launches.
