Piranha Games and Infinite Game Publishing have added 12-on-12 multiplayer gameplay to their free-to-play online computer game MechWarrior Online.

Implemented trough the most recent beta phase update, Piranha Games Creative Director Bryan Eckman says it's a crucial element of the official 1.0 launch later this summer.

"The 12 vs. 12 gameplay changes combat dramatically," he said. "Players now have a deep bench of options for a variety of strategies, more creative attacks and defense schemes and can alter their combat strategies in greater variety for each environment. This is true MechWarrior combat."

Set to launch on September 17th, MechWarrior Online has already gained more than one million players since its initial announcement last year.  The title has added loads of new content with regular updates since the game's Open Beta announcement last fall.
