UPDATE

Greetings MechWarriors

Release the BattleMaster! Now available in the 'Mech lab for C-Bills and MC. This Assault 'Mech has been tearing it up since Phoenix was released so you may want to get some premium time and earn extra C-Bills and XP on each match as you work towards mastering this fine assault 'Mech.

Check out the new Crusader pattern in Camo spec. You can unlock it for your new BattleMaster 'Mechs, or for any of your other 'Mechs in your stable. For me this pattern is an instant Classic.

We now have a Cockpit glass effect . You may not think this was a big deal but it helps reinforce the cockpit feel and immerse the player in the action.

Hit boxes continue to be tweaked and improved. It doesn't matter if you pilot these 'Mechs or not, you will want to read these changes before you head into battle to see what makes them pop.

We have a handful of Bug Fixes to round out the patch read on for details.

Enjoy this content as we push forward to the next release. It's going to be a big one.

See you on the battlefield.
Matt Newman
