Players of Piranha Games' Mechwarrior Online can add "Misery" to their list of weapons as the Stalker Mech is now available in the in-game Mech Lab.
With top speeds of 48.6 kph and armed with four medium lasers, a Gauss rifle, a large laser and an SRM-6, Misery is only one of the things added in the game's most recent update. Players also now have the chance to nab the new Jenner Champion Trial Mech, the option to customize the color of all Hero Mechs, and the Buccaneer Premium Pattern. This pattern's art direction was described by its artist as, "Some crazy, bearded, malnourished man with missing teeth going to work with a paint roller in the 'Mech hanger while indulging in questionable substances. This mech painting bender happened after the force he was attached to made off with thirty tons of potatoes, women's shoes, and stereo equipment from the last backwater planet they raided."
Piranha Games has also released an additional four new trial Mechs and three new cockpit items to start May off on the right foot: Trial Mechs include the Jenner JR7-F(C), the Hunchback HBK-4G, the JagerMech JM6-S and the Highlander HGN-732 - all of which can be taken out for a spin now in MechWarrior Online by fans eager to test out new options. To add to the personalization of the cockpit, statues for the Dragon, Awesome and Cicada are also now up for grabs.
The update also comes with some performance fixes and enhancements.
Mechwarrior Online is free-to-play.
