MechWarrior Online founder's program detailed photo



I know the free-to-play nature of MechWarrior Online turned some of us away early on, but the game looks rather good, visually speaking. Surely that and the brand are reason enough to check out the closed beta, which you can sign up for over here, right?

For those of you who are willing to go all in, Piranha Games has detailed its founder's program for MechWarrior Online, available starting June 19 in two tiers: a $30 Veteran package and a $60 Elite package. The latter gets you an exclusive BattleMech, $80 worth of in-game currency, early access, and more.

While this announcement pertains to North American servers, and the developers won't block IP addresses or anything like that, they are hoping to host similar initiatives for other regions. If none of that bothers you, then go right ahead and sign up.

$60 ELITE Founder's Package Includes:

  • Exclusive custom “Founder's BattleMech.” This Mech includes a lifetime, per-match C-Bill booster.
  • $80 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.
  • Two-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.
  • Founder's Tag - sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.
  • Early access to the game along with Founder's assets availability starts July 17th.

$30 VETERAN Founder's Package Includes: 

  • $40 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.
  • One-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.
  • Founder's Tag - sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.
  • Early access to the game along with Founder’s assets availability starts July 17th.
