Catalyst Game Labs is pleased to announce the following additional products are in development for release during the second quarter of 2011.
ERA REPORT: 3062
For three hundred years, the nations of the Inner Sphere waged war in the name of the fallen Star League, sending armies of MechWarriors into battle for glory and power. The arrival of the Clans, martial descendants of the lost Star League Defense Force, in 3049 upset all the previous balances of power and set the stage for cataclysmic warfare to rival the worst of the Succession Wars.
The end of the initial Clan invasion and the new renaissance of military technologies leads the leaders of the Successor States to seek advantage against each other. The ever-present specter of the Clans urges desperation to end old feuds to make space for new ones. And the Truce of Tukayyid holds the Clans in check, but does nothing to ease the cultural pressures on both sides of the border.
Conflict is inevitable.
Era Report: 3062 describes the state of the Inner Sphere and the Clans at a divisive period in BattleTech history: the latter years of the Clan Invasion. Presented as a general overview of the period, rather than a focused report on a single conflict, this book includes descriptions of many major Inner Sphere, Periphery, and Clan factions. Notable personalities, military forces, and an overview of the technological capabilities of the Inner Sphere and Clan powers of this critical period in history are also provided, along with special advanced-level rules for campaigns set in this era, whether played using the Total Warfare core rules or those found in A Time of War: The BattleTech RPG.
TECHNICAL READOUT: 3058 UPGRADE
BattleTech Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade returns to print! A huge list of Clan and Inner Sphere units still in active use in the present BattleTech timeline are covered, including a large selection of vehicles upgraded in technology from their first appearance in Technical Readout: 3039. Also covered is the first Technical Readout appearance of battle armor: all of the original designs that appeared following the Clan invasion receive a full TRO-style write-up. This reprint includes a new cover, and errata worked in througout.
RECORD SHEETS: 3058 UPGRADE
Record Sheets: 3058 Upgrade contains 49 pre-printed ’Mech record sheets that will have players firing autocannons, missiles and PPCs at each other in no time. More than 30 vehicle—as well as 20 battle armor—sheets bring the excitement of combined-arms game play to any table top. Two ready-to-play scenarios focus on the highlights of this volume, while an extensive Rules Addendum section, concentrating on massed infantry actions, provides a sneak peak of all the advanced rules options provided in Tactical Operations.
NOTE: Retailers looking for more information on each of these books can find sellsheets on Catalyst Game Labs’ retailers page.
