MechWarrior Online delivers a rich online experience, rewarding everything a player does with experience points, C-Bills, unlocks, and recognition. Upgrade skills and refine your role in gameplay using an all-new leveling system, and up-to-the minute detailed player statistics allow you to compare, track and share your progress with other players.

MechWarrior pilots can now dive into this massive online world of the distant future, where battles are won by piloting a futuristic world’s most advanced BattleMech’s and laying waste to opposing Mechs. Those wanting to strap themselves into the cockpit of their towering war machine can do so for free here
