"It is the 31st century. The invading Clans drive towards Terra as the feudal houses of the Inner Sphere collapse into civil war. Amidst the ensuing chaos, will you be a forgotten casualty...or a living legend?"

MechWarrior: Living Legends is 14v14 total war in the BattleTech universe. Stride the battlefield in a titanic BattleMech - or swarm enemy 'Mechs as armored infantry. Rule the streets as a tank commander, or pound the enemy with field guns and cruise missiles. Dominate the skies in fusion-powered aerospace fighters and nimble VTOL attackers.

Built on the Crysis engine, and featuring Battlefield's open maps and domination style gameplay. Matches escalate from skirmishes to ferocious armor battles and airstrikes. But you'll always start on even ground: there are no persistent unlocks or levels.

Total warfare in the legendary BattleTech universe. Standalone. Actively, passionately developed. Totally free.

Major Features:

  • Massive, highly detailed outdoor environments. Conquer battlefields ranging from scorching deserts to quiet farmlands to all sorts of alien worlds - even asteroids!
  • Epic multiplayer missions that thrust players into an ever-changing environment, forcing them to adapt their tactics and approach to conquer countless diverse battlefields.
  • Take control of numerous unique BattleMechs, tanks, hovercraft, aircraft (including VTOLs), each with at least six configurations! Both Clan and Inner Sphere also have their own Battle Armor.
  • Bring handheld weaponry to bear against your armored opponents - be it laser rifles or handheld Particle Projector Cannons.
  • Team-based strategic gameplay accented by combined-arms combat.
  • Countless faction-specific weapons - from Inner Sphere Long Tom Artillery to Clan Hyper Assault Gauss Rifles, and everything in between.
  • Various types of electronic warfare equipment, including ECM, Active Radar Probes, and radar data-sharing.
  • Unique strategic assets such as hangar-integrated repair bays, as well as different kinds of defensive systems.
  • Outdoor dynamic lighting allows for every battle to be fought during day or night, with accurate simulation of shadows, atmosphere, vegetation, and weather.
  • Powered by CryEngine 2™, with full DX10 support and scalable options to deliver solid performance on older machines. Bringing immense battlefields to life: complete with realistic physics, destructible vegetation, and dynamic lighting.
  • Online multiplayer action with up to 28 players on the PC.

Hello, and welcome to another update from the folks at MWLL!

In this series of articles, we're excited to share with you the various events members or groups within our community host or are planning to host. These events are open to beginners and veterans alike!

Our longest-running event is known as Chaos March, where teams of players compete over planets in a skirmish-type game mode. Hosted by Clan Smoke Jaguar, it runs every weekend (and sometimes Fridays), usually starting at 1800 GMT and running until around 0100 GMT. You only have to hop into the community TeamSpeak server (maintained by Clan Smoke Jaguar) - at address mwll.mwmaster.com - and stand by in the Ready Room channel to get sorted into teams! Everything else will get under way from there, and talking or having a microphone isn't required. For more information and updates, check out our forum post here and the Chaos March website here.

Though Chaos March is the biggest event our community hosts, there are a few newer ones that take on different forms of play. One of the latest, called TC101: Drop Edition is aimed specifically at helping players that have at least a little experience playing, and want to get better. Such players can drop with more experienced players into a public ongoing Terrain Control match, and get what you could call "live coaching" to help them out. This event will run on February 3rd and 10th, from 2000 to 2200 GMT. Getting on the mwmaster TeamSpeak server is required for this event, however having a microphone isn't. If you feel like you could use some guidance from our helpful veterans, you can sign up right here.

Yet another event that has recently taken off is our Solaris Arena Championship. This is an arena bracket competition, where pilots duke it out in specific weight or vehicle classes - such as light 'Mechs only, or Aerospace Fighters only. Pilots of any skill level are welcome, and using the TeamSpeak server isn't required. The event just recently passed its "test run," if you will, and that means it's going to be played more often! Though its test run is over, the Solaris Arena Championship will next run at some point during mid to late February, likely on a Saturday. There's no signup required for this event, but stay tuned for more updates in the coming month. You can check out this thread on our forums for more info, as well as potential updates on the event's status.

Lastly, there is another event planned called the Ishiyama Black Mountain Cup. This is a Terrain Control-oriented event, with organized teams basically playing the gamemode in a competitive manner. Voice comms will likely be required, however there aren't too many other specifics available at this time, such as a date and time. A signups form will be posted when the event gets fleshed out more.

To find more information and receive notifications about when an event will take place, you can also join our discord here.

We look forward to seeing you on the field!

This brings back memories!

I've always juggled between MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries and Living Legends WELL before MechWarrior Online was even a thing.

Really wished Piranha Games didn't go full retard on Omni Tech.

Is there a single player mode?

MWLL is multiplayer-only (that was the previous devs' main goal, and remains our main area of focus as well). Singleplayer's not something currently within our scope, however nice it would be to have. If there were more folks looking to make it a reality (and that means to actually work on it), we could start thinking about implementing it. Maybe someday it could be done, but we can't go about making promises right now.

Currently version 9.1
Lots more tanks, artillery, mechs, and weapons. Improvements being made all the time, with active community. Still free and stand alone. No grind, the start of each game you have your own skill and equal starts to everyone else.

Highest Rated (7 agree) 10/10

MechWarrior: Living Legends is simply the greatest multiplayer mod ever created. From the fantastic level design, art direction, particle, graphics and sound effects, to the intricacies and balance of the weapons, equipment, mechs, vehicles, infantry, the relative faithfulness and respect for the franchise, this mod has it all. The sheer amount and quality of work done on this mod surely exceeds most commercial AAA offerings, but the MWLL team does it for free and we're not even out of beta yet…
