Vamman writes "In light of the recent announcement of the new Mechwarrior Game. Smith and Tinker has granted our online dev team MekTek.net (which has been supporting Mechwarrior for almost a decade now) permission to release Mechwarrior4 entirely for free using the same type of distribution model that id Games used for Quake3's free release.

"In honor of BattleTech's 25th anniversary, Smith and Tinker has authorized MekTek.net and MekTek Studios to distribute MechWarrior 4 (along with its expansion packs) completely free. For years, MekTek.net has been the central point for online distribution of MechWarrior 4 expansion packs. Now they can provide the core game free to the fans as well. Keep an eye on BattleTech.com — the free download will be available soon!""
