MechWarrior 4 Rereleased for Free

Quote:
As promised way back in July of 09, MekTek Studios last night released on their website an updated version of MechWarrior 4 -- for free. The only problem is so many people want it that MekTek's servers are crashing under the demand.
As Gamerzines reports, the free MechWarrior 4 update was apparently cleared for release last night, thanks to a deal with Microsoft. This updated version of the game (first released in 2000) reportedly features improved multiplayer, new mechs, and new weapons, among other improvements.

All of which is pretty awesome (especially the free part), except it's so awesome MekTek's site has been down all morning due to overwhelming demand. You should eventually be able to download MechWarrior 4 here, but for now, there's no telling when MekTek will have their servers back up and running.

Hell Ya! I need to check this out. I stiil own my original copies of Mechwarrior and MechWarrior 2, but haven't played a MechWarrior game since. Can't wait for Mechwarrior 5 (I guess for the reboot of the series they are just calling it Mechwarrior)!

BTW, you can also download free legal copies of MechCommander and MechCommander 2 here:
