BattleTech Gets A Release Date, Launches This April

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.


    This looks amazing. Proper strategy, time to plan my moves... I'm too old and slow now to deal with games like CoH and Wargame. It's why I love Paradox as get to feel smart rather than punished for not being quick and smart.

    Like I am not saying that being unable to play as a Bear is heresy, but I am pretty sure free birthers are heresy.

      Maybe with enough expansions we'll reach 3050.

        I really really hope that we do, MW2 (and GBL by extension) were so great for insight into how the clans worked socially. I really miss the titanium edition mod.

      The game'll have mod support.
      Someone is going to mod in clans, and clan mechs.

        Its not the same without some really nice expanded clan lore. I always loved reading about how the different clans treated each other.

          One day there'll be a Clan Diamond Shark (or Clan Sea Fox) game where you can do the usual trials, and even if you lose you still have exclusive supply rights and mark up the price for the "winner" by 20%.

    Sweet, i don't need to dust off mech commander gold anymore


    I'm debating buying a new laptop to play this and Mechwarrior 5 (which is supposedly coming out in December this year too).

    Kickstarted this and POE2 and they're both coming out in April
