Just a one line description: Combat drops into metropolitan territory, with explosive results. Fight through urban sprawl with new ‘Mechs and mechanics.

Here's hoping for ECM and destructible terrain.

Clearly Urban Warfare is a campaign starring everyone's favourite Battlemech, the Urbanmech.

One thing I noticed quite starkly is that the current game shows that at least the Aurigan Nobles have full-on Star League era cooling suits instead of just simple cooling jackets, so Mastiff, Kamea, and Victoria are all fully suited in-cockpit rather than dressed skimpily like 80's Mad Max rejects or like 'Tasha 'K's pinup model look.

The three finest things in life are to splat your enemies, drive them from their turf, and hear their lamentations as their rank falls!

Seems to be an Art Shift.

I'm more upset about the giant SW-era Neurohelmets being phased out.tongue

So, the new expansion Flashpoint just came out. Anyone got any thoughts on it?

Not for the big main story but they've got new mechs and locations and the flashpoints one has multi-stage events and jobs.

I like the Urban one a lot, all the new environments are very pretty and a ton of fun to fight in.

Oh really when?

They are still stuff that affects main campaign though even if not main story missions?

How do you mean?

Can you play the flashpoints whilst also tackling the main campaign or is it "post game" sort of stuff? And if you can, do they have any bearing on the main game, outside of providing new toys to hit people with

And does the campaign get updated to reflect the new mech roster from the DLC?

[up]Pretty much what I meant [lol] I'm bad at articulating so I'm seriously glad someone else articulated it better

Flashpoints only appear when Restoration is cleared.
