Joystiq got to see MechWarrior Online in its closed beta at PAX Prime a few months ago, and the game was coming along nicely: a little light on the fast-paced shooter action and heavy on the MechWarrior-based customization options and battle mechanics. Infinite Game Publishing and Piranha Games have announced that MWO is headed into an open beta next week.
Players interested in playing can sign up on the MechWarrior Online website to reserve a name right now, and anyone looking to spend a little money on the free-to-play shooter (based, of course, on the tabletop strategy game) can join the Founders’ Program, which offers various tiers of premium rewards. The Founders’ Program will finish up on October 14, with the open beta following soon after.
MechWarrior Online Founders’ Program ends soon, open beta next week originally appeared on Joystiq on Wed, 10 Oct 2012 23:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
