If controlling giant robot suits in the past MechWarrior games has been a bit much for you, or if you just prefer a more tactical gaming experience, MechWarrior Tactics has got you covered.

Billed by the devs as the "thinking man's MechWarrior title", Tactics brings the world of BattleTech to a hexagonal playing field—that is, it's a turn-based strategy game.

You'll play the role of a mercenary leader commanding an array of custom, specialized mech warriors.

Strategy gamers beware: it promises to be addictive. Let us know what you think of the first gameplay footage in the comments or on Twitter.
