a bit of a delay last week, MechWarrior Online has announced that it will be entering open beta -- for real this time -- on October 29th.
The delay decision was made after beta player feedback presented concerns for the studio. Lag issues, new player tutorials, balance tweaks, and more have been improved for this open beta launch. To help boost the game's production, over $5M was raised through the game's pre-order Founder's program since July.
MechWarrior Online is set to launch in Q1 2013.
