If you’re looking to enjoy a little retro PC gaming this weekend then you can’t go wrong with a free copy of Mechwarrior 4; enjoy some post-apocalyptic robot rampaging today.
This isn’t just a free release of an old game you’re looking at. MekTek, the company behind the release, got permission from Microsoft to release Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries as a free game including the Inner Sphere Mech Pack, plus their own custom MekPak which brings the total number of Battlemechs and weapons into the hundreds. Further more, MekTek runs a network of game servers with tiered skill levels so everyone from a die hard Mechwarrior fan to a total novice can find a place to play.
Grab a free copy at the link below and relive some early 2000s Mechwarrior glory.
