MechWarrior Online has updated with a familiar sound cue from the classic games, and a newly available Death's Knell mech in the MWO store. The "Bitching Betty" start-up sequence from the original games joins the female cockpit voice added to the game late last year to help replicate the experience for old-timers.
The Death's Knell mech, meanwhile, is a fast and agile machine with 176 armor and four medium lasers. It also serves as a money-making venture, and by "money" we mean "virtual MechWarrior currency." The Death's Knell gets a 30% C-Bill bonus, so you can use it to boost your cash a bit faster than you can in a standard mech.
