site is now live at

. Visitors will take
a guided tour through many of the new features in MechWarrior 4: Black
Knight Expansion, including the new Black Market mode, five additional
BattleMechs, new vehicles, additional multiplayer modes, new screenshots
and a taste of the storyline. 


MechWarrior

4: Black Knight Expansion drops the player into the notorious Black Knight
Legion, a mercenary group of MechWarriors
focused on taking care of the most important people – themselves.
MechWarrior 4: Black Knight Expansion
introduces five new ‘Mechs for the player to
pilot: the Sunder, RyokenUller,
Wolfhound and Black Knight. It also includes several new vehicles, such as
the Demolisher II Heavy Tank and the Nightwind Attack Helicopter; and new
weapons, like the incredibly devastating Cluster Bombs. 

Players will
have also have access to some of the hardest to find weapons through
the game’s newest feature, the Black Market. The Black Market allows the
player to take salvaged ‘Mechs and weapons that they don’t need, and trade
them for something they do need. Players are no longer restricted to items
salvaged from the battlefield, they can now take their chances on the Black
Market. 

In
MechWarrior 4: Vengeance, gamers command an
awesomely armed 40-foot tall, 100-ton war machine across the remote
battlefields of a hostile world. Instead of desolate, sparsely populated
battlefields, MechWarrior 4 takes place in a
rich and dynamic universe inhabited by armed allies, noncombatants and
deadly antagonists. High-energy lasers pierce the night, rockets flare with
blazing fire, and buildings and vehicles crumble into smoldering rubble. Day
missions, night missions, fog, rain, snow, blizzards and lightning provide
atmosphere and add to the intensity and realism.
