Catalyst Game Labs has put together a little Battletech Primer PDF designed to help get anyone interested in the Battletech world with a bit of the history of both the games that have come before, and a bit about the universe, itself. So if you’ve not been keeping up with all things Mech for the past 30 years, here’s a bit of a history lesson for you
Creating a booklet that showcases the immense legacy of this universe, while providing an exciting, new way to present the information about the 3025 Succession Wars Era (as it’s been written about dozens of times), and showcasing all the ways players can experience BattleTech across all the companies involved producing games? Yeah…pretty tall order and it required lots and lots of go around. Ultimately you’ll let us know if we succeeded!
Beyond everything else that’s great about this PDF, the art is a brilliant, 30-year retrospective of an amazing cadre of artists. The art in this Primer covers thirty years of action-packed BattleTech excitement. From the very first books published in 1985 to illustrations this year from both the tabletop game as well as concept sketches from Harebrained Schemes’ coming BATTLETECH: enjoy the visual history of this stunning setting.
