Kalamazoo, MI - June 14, 2006
Virtual World Entertainment is thrilled to announce the newest release of Battletech: Firestorm for use in the Tesla: II cockpit system.
Release 5.06 is set to ship this June with 8 new 'Mechs and 2 new Maps to once again amp up the thrills and excitement of piloting a 100 ton walking tank in the arenas of Solaris 7.
Virtual World will continue to bring the work of MekTek.Net to the fans of Battletech by incorporating MekTek custom Battlemechs along with another traditional 'Mechs that Battletech fans around the world are familiar with.
In this Release, you will now be able to pilot the following 'Mechs along side the 34 that have already been integrated into the system.
25 Ton: Brigand
35 Ton: Puma
40 Ton: Arctic Wolf
45 Ton: Hollander II
65 Ton: Cauldonborn
75 Ton: Thanatos
80 Ton: Zeus
85 Ton: Deimos
The new maps include 2 fan favorites from Solaris 7, the Jungle (Liao Arena) and the Factory (Marik Arena).
Along with the new content, VWE is now giving Tesla II operators a chance to further enhance the Battletech: Firestorm experience by providing optional content upgrades.
For the first time since Battletech VR System 3.0, VWE is integrating 'Mech Variants into the Battletech: Firestorm experience.
Mech Variants will allow a player to select from 135+ different 'Mechs allowing for a huge increase in mission strategy and play options.
All of these 'Mechs are Classic Battletech TRO versions of 'Mechs currently implemented into the Battletech: Firestorm software. For more information about Classic Battletech visit www.classicbattletech.com .
16 Cockpit Capacity Upgrade
For the first time ever, sites will be able to 'break the limit' and operate up to 16 Tesla II cockpits as a single set. Also, with this feature, a site with only 8 cockpits would be able to run up to 8 human players, and 8 bots in a single mission for 16 Battlemechs in the field at one time!
