MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries was quietly announced as coming to Xbox back in March, but now it's received the full reveal treatment, with confirmation that it'll arrive for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on May 27.
Interestingly, it looks like it'll be coming to Xbox Game Pass for console, as the official website lists that it's "available through PC/Xbox/Ultimate Game Pass subscriptions." Until now, it's only been available on Game Pass for PC.
(We've reached out to Piranha Games about this, and will update if we can get confirmation.)
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will also be adding a bunch of new features later this month, including cross-play between all systems, a heap of gameplay changes and the brand-new Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC.
We'll keep you updated on that Game Pass news, but alternatively the full game will be available for $29.99.
Welcome to the year 3015! It’s a hell of a time to be alive. Humanity has colonized thousands of star systems, war is everywhere, and the battlefields of the future are dominated by hulking machines known as BattleMechs. It’s dangerous work for the elite pilots of these metal monstrosities, but that’s why a power-hungry MechWarrior like you came here, right?
If you’re looking to blast, wreck, stomp - and profit - step inside!
