BattleTech is a far-future space opera setting, where neo-feudal interstellar realms battle for supremacy across hundreds of worlds. The primary weapon is the BattleMech, 12-meter-tall walking tanks piloted by elite soldiers called MechWarriors. These 'Mechs duel for victory, battling each other and combat vehicles of every stripe, as each faction vies for control. First imagined as a tabletop wargame, this 30-year-old property has evolved into role-playing games, PC games, live-action simulation pods and more, including the fabulously popular MechWarrior Online(tm) team-based MMO shooter.
