Friday, March 15, 2013 @ 3:54pm

Developer Personae Studios has announced the newest revision of MechWarrior: Tactical Command is now a universal app. The classic game set in the BattleTech universe has expanded on the previous versions to bring optimized graphics, real-time strategy and three planets where the player commands a skilled lance of MechWarriors to fight for command of the Star League. The evolving story allows the player to get to know the personality of each of the MechWarriors through cut scenes and in-game video which also serve to keep the mission objectives clear throughout each assignment. The application is available for $0.99 through March 16.
