Next week the latest saga, at least tangentially, in the MechWarrior universe continues with the release of BattleTech. But MechWarrior games have come a long way since the original was released all the way back in 1989.
YouTuber Cussan has put together a neat little montage of every titled MechWarrior game, so there’s no other mecha inclusions like the Heavy Gear games, Starsiege or Monolith’s quirky anime shooter, Shogo.
