On the Mechwarrior Tactics forum they have shown off some new screenshots and a tiny snippet of combat gameplay. Mechwarrior Tactics will be a free to play turn based strategy game set in the Mechwarrior Universe and using a fairly accurate set of rules from tabletop.

Judging by the tiny video clip it will be a simultaneous turn and then all sides watch the action unfold in realtime. I’ll be giving this a go, soon as I can, I’ve never played the tabletop version before but have enjoyed the original pc games and am quite partial to some turn based strategy on occasion.
