There are many ways to be free

It’s taken a little while since the original announcement, but Mechwarrior 4 is now available for free from the splendid fellows at MekTek. Seems to have been a bit popular as MekTek’s servers promptly melted, but they’ve rebuilt them (presumably stripping a few PPCs, going with more autocannons, upping the heatsinks and standing in a lake) and put out a new version of the MTK software that downloads, installs and patches the game. Unfortunately MTK is slightly temperamental and I’m having a bit of a wrestle with it to try and get the game patched up to the free version, but not to look a gift horse in the mouth, should be fun to get stomping around in big robots again!
