The latest patch from Piranha Games for MechWarrior Online has unleashed a new hero on the mech-battling masses. The introduction of Death’s Knell unleashes a fast and agile mech packing 176 points of armor and a complement of quad medium lasers. Hero mechs aren’t just special because of their price or payload. They’re given a creative backstory to boot.
In addition to the introduction of Death’s Knell, the latest patch includes the original female cockpit voice over Bitching Betty. Bryan Ekman, creative director at Piranha Games, believes the addition of Betty will shake the cobwebs from the heads of old players.
“Whether I choose to pilot a familiar or totally new Mech, such as Death’s Knell, hearing Bitching Betty at the start really brings back fond memories while I get pumped for the action on the battlefield. We are excited to see how players utilize this speedy and deadly Mech, which excels at taking the fight to the enemy, and escaping before they can retaliate.”
