Mechwarrior Online Closed Beta Starts, "Founder's" Program Detailed

Boys and girls, it's time to get serious about America. Our fair nation finds itself in divisive times: one half of the country bemoans gay rights, reproductive rights, preaches the necessity of a return to our country's religious roots (I guess), and harbors a deep-seated fear that the President may, in fact, be the physical incarnation of Satan himself. The other half has been in the midst of a four year-long sigh.

Yet there is one thing thing that brings us all together - regardless of race, religion, sexuality or the propensity to spend seven hours per day screaming at one's feet looking at you Bachmann - a sure-fire way to bridge our differences in this turbulent epoch. I speak, naturally, of giant robots with lasers.

Thus, we have Mechwarrior Online, a free-to-play multiplayer extravaganza, which began a closed beta this week. While the rest of us "nuclear-powered, bipedal death machine" enthusiasts stew in angst, unlucky enough to be woefully beta-less, the MWO creators have announced two packages that grant early access to the game, as well as some additional goodies. The respective perks of said packages are as follows:

$60 ELITE Founder's Package:
  • Exclusive custom "Founder's BattleMech." This 'Mech includes a lifetime, per-match C-Bill booster.
  • $80 value of in-game currency* for in-game item purchases.
