Battletech is part of Paradox Science Fiction Weekend

Have you always dreamed of building your Mech and destroying hordes of enemies? Well, then Battletech is the game for you.

In the game you will have to take care of all the details of your robot, modifying weapons, systems, skills, and much more. Of course, you can’t be shallow. You will need to take into account several factors in the construction of your robots such as weight, endurance, mobility, and power. If you want advice, when you personalize your character, don’t just think about the aesthetic aspect.

Besides, you’ll also need to take into account your combat technique to face epic battles against your opponents. For example, if you shoot you have to consider the direction and damage it can cause to enemies. You also need to consider the charging times and the effects that the action will have on your character.

You have to remember that Battletech is a strategy game and you’ll need to study your moves before you make them. A single action can lead you to victory, at the same time, a wicked tactic will destroy your Mech.

I don’t want to tell you anything about the plot, just know that there will be twists and turns from the first moments. In short, Battletech is a game you have to try, especially taking advantage of its discount during the Paradox Science Fiction Weekend.

Battletech: Flashpoint at a discounted price during the Paradox Science Fiction Weekend

What do you have to do if you want even more from a game like this? Simple, you have to choose the additional content Battletech: Flashpoint.

This DLC will allow you to add about 30 hours of play to the campaign, unlock other intertwined stories, and put you in front of difficult choices. An add-on not to be missed if you loved the main title.

Battletech Urban Warfare

If you loved strategic videogame battles, then you should buy Battletech Urban Warfare. This DLC will allow you to face fantastic battles against enemies, in a city setting.

Moreover, with this DLC you can have fun in multi-player, facing other players from all over the world.

Battletech Heavy Metal

Finally, if you want to take on new Mechs, bet on Battletech Heavy Metal. You will fight against 8 new robots and you will have to be perfect to defeat them all.

However, if you are interested in watching some mech inspired movies, we have some suggestions for you.

Shadowrun Returns

Are you crazy about fantasy and science fiction? Then I’m sure you’ll love the games in the Shadowrun franchise. In these games, you can explore a futuristic universe full of races and magical creatures. Magic and science meet in one place: what a fantastic premise, isn’t it?

Paradox Science Fiction Weekend: Shadowrun Returns

In Shadowrun Returns you will be in the year 2048 and you will have to travel to the slums of a futuristic city. The game is an RPG and you will have to deal with many characters, talk to them and face the different quests.

The thing that struck me about this title, is that you will play a mercenary, neither good nor bad. It will be your actions to define your work. From some points of view, this reminded me very much of Tyranny, one of the best RPGs of the last period.

Regardless, Shadowrun Returns manages to have its own identity and will involve you more and more. You have to give this Paradox Interactive work a chance, believe me, it’s worth it.

What if you want to try a more “cyberpunk” experience? Maybe you look forward to the game Cyberpunk par excellence, you know what I mean, and you want to get in the right mood.

Well, I recommend Shadowrun: Dragonfall. It is a kind of expansion of Shadowrun Returns, but thanks to its size can be considered a new chapter of the franchise.

The atmosphere of the videogame is darker and darker and the story is full of twists and turns. In addition, you can try an improved combat-system that will delight you during fights. You can now take advantage of the Director’s Cut edition, do not miss it.

Finally, if you love futuristic RPGs you should also take a look at Shadowrun: Hong Kong. You will find yourself in a corrupt and exotic setting where you cannot trust anyone. The story is beautiful, I recommend you to live it fully from the beginning to the end.

Besides, the graphics are better than their predecessors and the longevity of the game is fantastic. You can try the Extended Edition and the Deluxe Upgrade.
