Download Mechwarrior 4 for Free [Gaming]

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.

    which is Torrented with their own MTX client software… (you don’t need MTX open to play the game. it’s good for updating tho)
