MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries first released on PC back in December of 2019, and now we've got official confirmation that it's coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on May 27 (thanks TheGamer).

We haven't got many details just yet, but the first major DLC for the game – 'Heroes of the Innersphere' is also said to be launching at the same time. Here's what Robin Flodin, CEO of EG7 had to say about the announcement:

"We are very excited to also be able to give Xbox and Steam players a good dose of MechWarrior fun. It is also great to be able to present yet another example of the EG7 companies working together to bring a world-class title to market."

There's no word yet on whether MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be coming to Xbox Game Pass for console, but we wouldn't be surprised if it does, as it's currently included with Xbox Game Pass for PC. Let's hope that's the case!

The year is 3015. The battlefields are dominated by war machines known as BattleMechs. Level entire cities and decimate the enemy in your BattleMech. Follow a quest for glory and revenge. Manage an expanding mercenary company. Fight alongside your friends with a four-player PvE co-op.
