New action title also becomes Epic Games store exclusive
Developer Piranha Games have announced that MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries has been pushed back to December 10th, and is now coming exclusively to the Epic Games store on PC.
"Understandably some fans will be disappointed that they have to wait a short while longer for MechWarrior 5, but it’s important to Piranha Games that we absolutely get this right. We are happy to say that our new partnership with Epic Games store allows us the time and ability to accomplish our goals both in the games development and marketing efforts," said Russ Bullock, executive producer.
The Epic Games store exclusivity will run for one year, after that it will appear on other digital stores. Fans looking to obtain refunds from their Steam preorder of any tier are able to do so by September 1st. Preorder refunds of any tier will be refunded in full. Additionally, fans seeking refunds will be able to keep all bonus MechWarrior Online content from the Standard, Collector and Ultimate Editions of the preorder. Refunded preorders will be unable to participate in the upcoming closed beta for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, now scheduled for November 5.
In MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, pilots will build, manage, and guide their own mercenary unit through a multi-year campaign during the Third and Fourth Succession Wars.
