MechWarrior 5: Clans is the new game from Piranha Games that focuses on the story of the Clan invasion in the year 3050. Contrary to what you might think, this title is not an expansion of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, but rather a complete independent game. Release is scheduled for 2024 for PC as well as Xbox and Playstation consoles.
In MechWarrior 5: Clans, players take on the role of Clan Smoke Jaguar and follow the Star of Clan Smoke Jaguar warriors during Operation REVIVAL, a full-scale invasion of the Inner Sphere. The game offers an immersive and complex tactical combat experience with carefully designed maps and missions.
Although MechWarrior 5: Clans will be independent, it retains the same mechanics as its previous installment. It will be a combat simulator that introduces a renewed progression and customization system with two new elements: Hardpoint and Omnipod.
The game’s story focuses on the Smoke Jaguar Clan’s campaign during the events of the Great Invasion in 3050. Players can explore new planets and hand-crafted environments and customize their mechs. In this exciting story you will play the pilot of a squadron of five newcomers.
Some may be wondering about keeping the MechWarrior 5 name since it feels like an expansion. However, it is important to remember that the subtitle “Clans” defines this new proposal, which focuses more on the plot narrative.
We look forward to learning more details about MechWarrior 5: Clans in the coming years as we prepare for release on consoles and PC in 2024.
