has moved forward the internal game timeline to the year 3049, and with the change of date comes a long awaited event: the Clan Invasion
This fictional event in the BattleTech universe will now play out in the online game, as players will fight in notable battles with new 'Mechs on different planets.
With the Clan Invasion begun, the team has begun work on creating Units for the game. Units are MWO's
