    Legacy of MechWarrior

To bring the BattleTech fanbase closer to the warmachines called BattleMechs Activision and Dynamics created the game 'MechWarrior'
This puts the player directly into the cockpit of the 'Mechs allowing them to pilot these giant war machines.

But we know this already.
And apparently you are here because you love it!
So do we, and that is why we have made a small section listing all the MechWarrior games.

    MechWarrior (One/Origional)

The first video game to offer the player a chance to pilot a BattleMech from the view of a pilot.
You play as a low noble who lost his family and ownership of a moon and must try to regain his birthright.
What you will be doing is looking for contracts with his Mercenary company to gain reputation, make money and find those responsible.

There are a lot of game mechanics build in allowing for a great deal of freedoms, including:
Choosing contracts & missions, buying & selling mechs or parts, hiring lance-mates, and traveling throughout the entire Inner Sphere.

    MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat

Where the origional game focussed on the Third Succession wars inside the BattleTech universe.
MechWarrior 2 focussed on the new faction, 'the Clans' who have failed to invade the Inner-Sphere.
There failure brought a lot of internal strife between different political factions and in turn individual Clan's.

Where the origional game gave more freedom to follow or negelect the story campaign this time it was storytelling
You see the conflict between Clan Wolf or Clan Jade Falcon trough the eyes of one of there MechWarriors.

    MechWarrior 2: Ghost Bear's Legacy

Expansion pack:
Adds Clan Ghost Bear with multiple Mechs, Weapons and Missions.

    MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries

    MechWarrior 3

Our pride and glory, MechWarrior 3 Sets just a few years after the battle of Tukayyid.
