announced that two new MechWarrior™ 4 'Mech Paks will be available

‘Mech Paks will expand the award-winning multiplayer experience
first brought to you in MechWarrior 4: Vengeance, and allow the
player to explore the MechWarrior universe in greater detail,"
said FASA studio producer TJ “PAINGOD” Wagner. "When combined
with the initial release or the Black Knight expansion, these titles
add further depth to the most complete MechWarrior experience in
the long history of the franchise."
One Pak will contain
new Inner Sphere content; the other will build up the Clan arsenal.
MechWarrior 4: Inner Sphere ‘Mech Pak will be released this spring
and will include:
Multiplayer Map - 'Mechs duke it out in the arena, entertaining
- Heavy Gauss
Rifle - The HGR hits harder than the standard Gauss Rifle,
at the expense of tonnage and range.
- IFF Jammer
- Spread confusion in the enemy's ranks with this new component.
- 4 new Inner
Clan ‘Mech Pak will follow shortly thereafter, with more details
available as development proceeds.
In a new development,
players will be able to vote on which 'Mechs will appear in future
MechWarrior releases. The first "Select a 'Mech" survey
is focused on the Inner Sphere, and players can pick which of the
Inner Sphere 'Mechs they want to strap into. The 'Mech that gets
the most votes will be added to the lineup for future MechWarrior
titles. After this survey is complete, there will be another for
Clan 'Mech selection. For more details on the survey, visit http://www.microsoft.com/games/mw4_blackknight/future_mechs.asp.
