To celebrate the imminent release of the BattleTech Beginner Box and BattleTech: A Game of Armored Combat boxed sets, the release of Harebrained Schemes’ BATTLETECH, as well as Piranha Games hotly-anticipated MechWarrior 5, new printings of the core BattleTech rulebooks are now available in PDF from the Catalyst Game Labs store.

The PDFs feature fully-updated errata and vintage artwork covers! As each of the core rulebooks are reprinted, they’ll receive a vintage cover to celebrate the wonderful history of the BattleTech universe. Each represents the most up-to-date, polished version of the essential BattleTech rules.

Any customers who previously purchased these PDFs will receive an e-mail notification enabling them to download these updated printings.

The classic artwork gracing the covers of these products appears below. The line includes:
  • Total Warfare, the core BattleTech rulebook. Following the book’s print debut at Origins Game Fair and Gen Con, pre-orders for the print edition are now available, with an expected street date of August 22, 2018. (ARTIST: Les Dorscheid; First Publication: BattleTech Manual, 1987.)
  • TechManual, the core construction rulebook allowing players to create their own exciting units for unique BattleTech games. A companion volume to Total Warfare, TechManual provides construction rules for tournament-legal units, as well as core weaponry and equipment and the newest, bleeding edge technologies. (ARTIST: Doug Chafee; First Publication, Tactical Handbook, 1994.)
  • Tactical Operations, the advanced rules that apply to on-world operations. It includes new movement and combat options, an extensive Advanced Weapons and Equipment section, and the rules for playing and constructing advanced Support Vehicles and Mobile Structures. (ARTIST: Doug Chaffee; First Publication, CityTech, Second Edition boxed set, 1994.)
Note: the hard-copy availability of the new printings of Tactical Operations and TechManual has not been determined.

A fully-updated errata PDF of Strategic Operations, the advanced rules for aerospace combat and solar system-level campaigns, is in the works. (ARTIST: Steve Venters; First Publication: BattleForce box set, 1987.)

The PDFs are priced at $15 each, and are available now.

If you’re traveling to Gen Con from Aug. 2 to Aug. 5, be sure to stop by Catalyst Game Labs’ booth to check out the new BattleTech boxed sets and all of Catalyst’s great games!
