MechWarrior Open Beta rescheduled to Oct. 29

MechWarrior Online, Piranha Games' free-to-play action title, will commence its open beta tomorrow, Oct. 29, the company announced.

The beta was originally set for Oct. 16, but Piranha pushed the date back due to problems expressed by beta testers at the time. Lag issues, match making and general tweaks were a few of the issues addressed.

MechWarrior Online is set in the year 3049, when interstellar war is just beginning to take hold. Players customize and command mechs in battle. An official release date has not been announced, although the game is slated to launch exclusively for PC in 2012.
