After a slight delay, MechWarrior Online is scheduled to begin open beta testing today. Data will be wiped for the start of the event and that will be the last time that players will have to start from scratch. So put your mind at ease Founders, you can play without fear of further wipes.
Piranha Games President Russ Bullock has put together a message to the community about the impending open beta and what players can expect going forward. Read what he had to say on the MechWarrior Online website.
