    One thing that I think is a positive is that MWO's existence means they shouldn't have to compromise anything from the single player for multi-player considerations. I say "shouldn't" because I think there's a chance they do it anyway

    I have fears since PGI is involved however since they have managed to keep MWO alive, for the what? 4 years that it has been around? Maybe there is hope. I will be open minded and see what they have to say.

    PGI's Timeline Conpiracy -> Game is set in the year 3015. But the Raven Mech is first produced in 3024. How comes it fights the Shadowhawk in MW5:M? Must be experimental build in the Demo or they go from 3015 to 3050 with epic Time Jump Campaign to make a totally different Timeline Universe! Isn't that trendy nowadays in movies? (T5!?) *Shock*

    I don't want to spend $50/$60 on the single player MWO campaign with better graphics.

    I never played any MW game besides MWO online.

    What will be different about MW5 than MWO besides a campaign mode?

    Some Facts(?) i've read so far:


    Release, Microtransaction, Addons etc
    • 2017 We First get TBS Game Battletech by Harebrained Schemes. MW5:M will follow 2018.

    • MW5:M is Standalone Game so No MWO (Account) required.

    • No Early-Access-Phase and probably also No Microtransactions.

    • Release via Steam, instead Microtransactions there might be some Kind of Bonus for Preorders.

    • If Game woud be successful they would develop some Addons/DLCs with extra Story to fill some Timeline Gaps, as well.

    • It's more like MechWarrior 1 than MW2-4 (Inner Sphere Story)
    • No Mechlab, rather simplified Mech Configuration, maybe even Fixed Weapon Loadouts
    • Game is focused on Marauding and collecting Enemy Mechs/Parts from the Battlefield
    • Gameplay/Mechanics will lean on MWO (everything that worked so far) e.g. max 12v12
    • Game will have aircrafts and ground vehicles, but not sure about Infantry
    • Unreal Engine 4 with focus on VR (!!!)

    A friend of mine spotted that too, I just hope it was a bit of sloppiness from the concept art team and not just going off on a Battletech tangent because they are ignorant and don't care.

    No Mechlab? No thank you.

    To me, that's the most fun part of Mechwarrior. The game is secondary to the build.
