Additionally, the patch grants players the heralded return of Bitching Betty, the official female cockpit voiceover from the original MechWarrior games. For Founders of MechWarrior Online an activation button has been added granting fans the option to choose when their premium time begins.

“Camo Spec brings to life a very important part of the BattleTech universe,” said Bryan Ekman. “With this new addition I’m excited to see a real evolution towards defining your own MechWarrior persona and bringing to life the richness of the past, present and future MechWarrior Online heroes.”

The first phase of the paint and pattern content allows fans to stand out with distinctive options available in the Mech Lab. Available now, the “Dazzle” pattern scheme can be applied to any Mech with more patterns in the pipeline, including the “Urban Block” and “Woodland” designs which will be live in the next few weeks. Additionally, the intimidating “Phraken” pattern is now available for the recently launched Cataphract Mech. With the different patterns and color schemes hitting the Mech Lab in coming weeks, the design possibilities for MechWarrior fans across the InnerSphere will be endless. Read more

November 19, 2012 · Filed Under News · Comment 

A year ago, Sword of the Stars II: Lords of Winter was released and while full of potential, didn’t quite meet expectations, including those set by the developer and publisher.

Paradox Interactive has financed and distributed updates, giving Kerberos Studios the opportunity to continue patching the game to get it into a state where everyone can be proud of the product.

Now, a year later, Paradox Interactive and Kerberos Studios are finally happy to declare the game in good condition and are celebrating by revealing a brand new expansion “End of Flesh”, alongside new content and improvements in Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition.

As a token of appreciation and “thank you” for their patience, Paradox Interactive will arrange for existing Sword of the Stars II owners to receive “End of Flesh” for free on release. Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition is scheduled to release on November 30th. Read more
