SPONSORED: CATALYST GAME LABS LAUNCHES REWARDING 'BATTLETECH: MERCENARIES' KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, EXPANDING THE GAME & MINIATURES LINE
Takes in More than $3 Million in First 24 Hours

BattleTech: Clan Invasion was launched on Kickstarter by Catalyst Game Labs in 2019, and jumpstarted the latest revival of BattleTech. The campaign funded in seven minutes, and ultimately raised over $2.5 million from more than 11,000 backers over a 30-day campaign, taking its place as one of the top 100 Kickstarters at that time. Since then, the fan base has more than quadrupled across various platforms, including social media, fan forums, DriveThru RPG, and more.
latest campaign, BattleTech: Mercenaries, hopes were high that it would least equal the success of Clan Invasion. But just hours after the live launch at AdeptiCon on Thursday, March 23, the Mercenaries campaign blew the Clan Invasion campaign out of the water. Mercenaries funded in a jaw-dropping 45 seconds, took in its first million dollars in under an hour, and funded more than $3.5 million in its first 24 hours, more than Clan Invasion’s entire 30-day run.
"This campaign exceeded our wildest expectations," Catalyst Game Labs owner Loren Coleman said. "The excitement shown by our fans was extremely humbling."
BattleTech: Mercenaries has pledges for new gamers at the Recruit level, which comes with the Beginner’s Box Set and a SalvageBox, which contains a random surprise miniature. The box set comes with 2 miniatures, Quick Start Rules, a map, and everything a new player needs to dip their toe into BattleTech. The Recruit pledge also comes with a Challenge Coin from any of the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere, fearsome Clans, or scrappy mercenary commands, as well as a complete digital novel, Double-Blind, written by Loren L. Coleman.
