Ok folks, Gen Con is a couple of days away. Just like with Origins, ask whatever questions you have and and I'll try and get answers. As always, any answers I provide will be those that can be provided to the fan base at large (not protected by NDA) and, as often as possible, I'll list who says what in answer.

Can we look forward to any kind of marketing push alongside the release of HBS Battletech, since that game will obviously drum up public interest in the game?

There are two new box sets, an Introductory box and the "full box". Introductory box will have a low price range with only a few minis. Full box is a new version of the previous boxes, so new sculpts and material. They'll be out in 6-12 months.

In an impromptu Q&A over on the Catalyst Games BattleTech forums , lead developer Brent Evans has answered burning questions on the future of the franchise. Before we get into the nitty-gritty, huge thanks to Dragon over at Aries Games And Miniatures for posting these questions last June, and thanks to Evans for actually getting around to responding. Better late than never, right?

To start, the big question of what’s going to happen politically with the entire BattleTech universe is not actually something that Evans can answer directly. As lead developer, Evans and his team are currently working on a larger metaplot that “will endure for the next generation of the game”, but the details remain fluid. The reason for this is that the BattleTech fiction is being driven by Catalyst ‘s writers rather than the product developers.

The creative process at Catalyst is somewhat extreme. In Evans’ own words: “I’m no writer… more a Creative Director. I grab the best team members, throw ’em together with some direction, gas and matches, and then shake. Prior to GenCon I recruited the team, locked them in a room at GenCon, and since then I’ve been beating them with sticks to forge stories worthy of BattleTech.”
