Piranha Games, the longtime stewards of the MechWarrior franchise, have unveiled MechWarrior 5: Clans, a standalone tactical action game set to redefine mech combat. Scheduled for release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam, MechWarrior 5: Clans introduces players to a captivating narrative-driven campaign that explores the human side of the mech-based conflict.

Following its sandbox-style predecessor, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, MechWarrior 5: Clans presents a new game design featuring a linear approach streamlining mech combat for both PC and console players. Players can pilot their chosen mech in single-player or up to five-player cooperative play, immersing themselves in a lore-rich universe that challenges their skills while unveiling an unforgettable story.

The game's campaign, set against the backdrop of the first Clan Invasion story in decades, is meticulously crafted with narratively driven missions that immerse players in a gripping storyline.

In MechWarrior 5: Clans, players assume the roles of five pilots from the Smoke Jaguar clan, newly graduated from their cadet program and thrust into a pivotal moment in the MechWarrior universe. As they mobilize to aid their clan in a full-scale invasion of the Inner Sphere, players will wield cutting-edge BattleMechs through an expansive campaign that delivers immersive and rewarding tactical combat.

The game's captivating campaign unfolds across various stunning planets, each meticulously designed to deliver engaging combat scenarios. Handcrafted maps and missions demand thoughtful, strategic play, with tactical options enhanced by customizable Clan Mechs boasting sleek and powerful Clan technologies. This immersive experience is further complemented by new progression and customization systems that allow players to alter their Mech load-outs with expansive customization options.

MechWarrior 5: Clans also introduces ally-directing tools, empowering players to intuitively lead their Star through a bird' s-eye-style Battlegrid and a quick command radial menu. Adaptability to the scenario is critical to achieving strategic victories in this intense mech combat experience.

As a follow-up to the critically acclaimed MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, which sold over 2 million units and maintained an 84% Very Positive ranking on Steam, MechWarrior 5: Clans promises to be a groundbreaking entry in the MechWarrior universe. With its gripping narrative, strategic combat, and stunning visual design powered by Unreal Engine 5, MechWarrior 5: Clans is set to redefine mech combat for new and veteran players.
