MechWarrior Online Launches Founder’s Program, OPERATION INCEPTION

It’s been over a decade since we’ve seen anything official from the MechWarrior franchise. I lost countless hours to the fourth installment, which is why I’m excited for the upcoming MechWarrior Online, which is due to launch later this year. The newest Mech game will be free-to-play, but those who want the absolute best experience may want to check out the Founder’s Program, dubbed OPERATION INCEPTION.

Founders have their choice of three different reward tiers, all of which include in-game currency, a premium subscription, and early access to the game. Higher tiers will also receive exclusive “Founder’s BattleMechs” and even the opportunity to be listed in the game’s credits. Here’s a full breakdown of what you’ll get for each:

$120 LEGENDARY Founder’s Package Includes:

*All 4 exclusive “Founder’s BattleMechs.” These Mechs include a lifetime, per-match C-Bill booster.
*$80 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.
*Three-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.
*Founder’s Tag – sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.
*Game credits – The player’s name included as one of the “Legendary” in the MechWarrior Online game credits.
*Early access to the game along with Founder’s assets availability starts August 7th.

$60 ELITE Founder’s Package Includes:

*One exclusive custom “Founder’s BattleMech.” This Mech includes a lifetime, per-match C-Bill booster.
*$80 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.
*Two-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.
*Founder’s Tag – sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.
*Early access to the game along with Founder’s assets availability starts August 7th.

$30 VETERAN Founder’s Package Includes:

*$40 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.
*One-month premium account to MechWarrior Online at launch: Earn XP & C-Bills faster.
*Founder’s Tag – sets your status apart from the crowd & get noticed in-game and on the forums.
*Early access to the game along with Founder’s assets availability starts August 7th.

Now I know what you’re thinking, $120 is a lot to pay for a game that is essentially free. However, they do have to make money somehow, and the perks are pretty cool. Four mechs, $80 in currency and three months of premium access seems like it would be worth it, to the right person. Early access for Founders will begin on August 7. No word yet on when the game will open up for everyone else.
