MechWarrior: Living Legends final version released as rights withdrawn

Three years after launching, stompy robot Crysis mod MechWarrior: Living Legends has released its very final version. The gang at Wandering Samurai Studios still have more they'd like to do but, alas, their license to use the MechWarrior property is up.

MechWarrior Online double XP weekend incoming

You're stomping around merrily in MechWarrior Online's new Spider mech, jumpjetting away and running circles around slower mechs, what could be better? Well, double XP wouldn't be bad.

MechWarrior Online sales pass $5 million before launch

Though MechWarrior Online will be free-to-play when it launches, players have already coughed up more than $5 million to play the beta version through its Founder's Program.
