Battletech, a turn-based tactics mech title from the developer Harebrained Schemes is getting its third major expansion named Heavy Metal on 21 November 2019.

Heavy Metal will introduce eight new mechs and one of the new machines is entirely new to the franchise, designed from scratch, the developer confirmed.

Named Bull Shark, it’s a beefy assault mech with devastating cannon which can only fire twice per one mission but the damage it deals across a huge area of effect can demolish objects and buildings in one shot. Here is the full list of new mech additions:

  • Flea, a 20-ton Mech.
  • Assassin, a 40-ton Mech.
  • Vulcan, a 40-ton Mech
  • Phoenix Hawke, a 45-ton Mech.
  • Annihilator, a 100-ton Mech.
  • Archer, a 70-ton missile boat.
  • Rifleman, 60-ton beast.

These mechs will be available to those who pick up the paid expansion or already own the Season Pass. However, the update will also come with a free patch, which includes two additional BattleMechs – Marauder-class and the Warhammer-class chassis.

Heavy Metal also brings eight all-new weapon systems that can be “utilized to destroy even the most formidable opponents in a wide variety of unique ways”.

New Flashpoint Mini-Campaign is also included and it sets players face-to-face with two legendary characters from Battletech lore – the Bounty Hunter and the Black Widow of Wolf’s Dragoons.

Onto the numbers. Seven old mechs and one new mech. Paradox says the vintage mechs also come with unique equipment that reflects the flavor and lore of the original board game.

Eight new weapons, including a ‘Mech Mortar that deals with splash damage to multiple units and Inferno Missiles that light up targets.

Two old characters, the Black Widow of Wolf’s Dragoons and the Bounty Hunter, on one new Flashpoint thread focused on a derelict cargo ship which has drifted in from deep space.

Battletech: Heavy Metal DLC is hitting the live servers on 21 November 2019 and it costs $20/£16/€20 on Steam and Paradox Store.
