Heavy Metal is the title of the third big expansion for BattleTech, a tactical turn-based strategy game from 2018. Like the base version of the game and previous add-ons, the expansion was developed by Harebrained Schemes and published by Paradox Interactive.
BattleTech: Heavy Metal introduces a new mini-campaign, in which the players face two famous characters from the universe: Wolf's Dragoons mercenaries, known as Bounty Hunter and Black Widow. In addition, the expansion enables us to investigate the secrets of a certain transporter wreck that reached the Periphery.
Except for the new missions, BattleTech: Heavy Metal brings eight previously unavailable mechs and weapon systems. The list of the former consists of seven machines known from the BattleTech board game, as well as a completely new construction, designed excelusively for the add-on. Among the latter we can find the first weapon dealing area damage, i.e. a mortar, as well as inferno missiles that increase target's internal heat, disabling them.
BattleTech: Heavy Metal can be played alone or in multiplayer mode over the Internet.
Heavy Metal does not bring any changes in the audiovisuals. As it is non-standlone expansion, it requires the base version of the game to work.
