MechWarrior is a series of video games set in the fictional universe of BattleTech.

Games[edit]

Within the MechWarrior games, players take control of a single BattleMech and combat other BattleMechs, tanks, infantry, and more, from within the cockpit of their machine. A third-person alternate view is available in MechWarrior versions 2, 3, 4, and MW:o (Mechwarrior:Online). Both MechWarrior 2 and MechWarrior 3 were Origins Award winners, taking Best Fantasy or Science Fiction Computer Game 1995 and Best Action Computer Game 1999 respectively. MechWarrior: Living Legends was the recipient of the ModDB 2009 Mod of the Year[1] and - due to rules preventing one mod from winning the same award twice[2] - an Honorable Mention in 2010. It should be noted that MechWarrior: Living Legends is not an actual MechWarrior mod, but rather a Crysis complete conversion.[3]

In-universe timeline[edit]

Live-action film[edit]

Electric Entertainment, a Hollywood production company founded by Dean Devlin, currently holds the option to produce a feature film based on the MechWarrior universe.[4] In 2003, Devlin approached Paramount to pitch the project but failed to receive funding. The project is currently in development hell.[citation needed]
