Daeron Katz, Senior Community Manager at Piranha Games had the following to say on the PlayStation Blog:

I feel honored to be able to formally announce that both MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries and the Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC will be heading to PS4 and PS5 on September 23. In terms of differences, the PlayStation 5 version supports adaptive triggers and advanced haptics with the DualSense controller. This will also be the first time MechWarrior will be on a PlayStation console in over 20 years!

The dev team at Piranha Games is already super excited about how MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is shaping up for its PlayStation debut. The base game benefits from over a year’s worth of additional development work and comes stacked with tons of gameplay, systems, and quality of life improvements – many of which are based directly on fan feedback.

Thanks to a huge and worldwide playerbase with cross-play, DLC sharing, and also over a year’s worth of development time dedicated to gameplay, AI, balancing, and quality of life improvements, both longtime fans like myself and strangers to the MechWarrior franchise will have a lot to enjoy and discover when MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries and the Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC head to PlayStation on September 23!

Some additional quality-of-life changes that will come to the PlayStation version of the game include the ability for players to switch between any of the AI Lance BattleMechs during a mission. As an added bonus, players will be able to experience the entirety of the Heroes of the Inner Sphere campaign so long as the host of the party owns the DLC.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is currently available on PC (Epic Games Store, Steam, and GOG), Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X.
