As previously covered, MechWarrior Online is offering a multi-tier founder's program that gives players willing to throw down some cash up front early access to the free-to-play game and exclusive content. Starting today, you can sign up for the program if you so desire.
Beyond the already announced tiers -- "Veteran" and "Elite," which are $30 and $60, respectively -- Piranha Games is also upping the ante with a $120 "Legendary" founder's package.
This includes four exclusive BattleMechs, your name in the credits, $80 worth of MechWarrior Online currency, a three-month premium account, a special tag for use in the forums and game itself, and an early playable build on August 7, 2012. While that's not exactly inexpensive, I have a feeling it'll sell just fine.
