MechWarrior: Living Legends 0.4.0 Public Beta Release

After several months of toil, trouble, unbelieveable bugs and numerous small animal sacrifices we are proud to announce the immediate release of Mechwarrior : Living Legends Open Beta 0.4.0 Total Conversion modification for Crysis and Crysis Wars!

NOTE: The issue with the game crashing due to a broken Sounds.pak is now fixed and we released a hotfix. Please run the Auto Updater to get the latest files and update your build to version 0.4.1.

The long wait is over and you will now be able to enjoy the most feature-filled version of MechWarrior: Living Legends yet.  MWLL 0.4.0 has numerous updates, including:

  • Some stuff changed.
  • Dual-platform support for Crysis and Crysis Wars
  • New Game Mode :: Terrain Control
  • New Unit :: Hephaestus Clan Hovercraft
  • New Unit :: Morrigu Clan Assault Tank
  • New Unit :: Thor Clan Heavy Mech
  • New Weapon :: Clan Heavy Lasers
  • New Weapon :: Inner Sphere X-Pulse Lasers
  • New Weapon :: Clan Advanced Tactical Missile (ATM)
  • 5 mode-specific maps; including 2 brand new ones for Terrain Control
  • New Feature :: Build Repair Utility
  • New Feature :: Extended League Mode Support
  • Renaming of Game Mode :: Solaris Arena is now known as Team Solaris Arena
  • Bonus Map :: TSA_Palisades

Terrain Control brings a new objective-based game mode centered on the capture and control of key locations on a game map.   Kills and enemy damage are still a factor, but are weighed less than having terrain under your teams control.

MWLL 0.4.0 Total Download Size :: 2.2 GB
