Trivia

Development

Originally, this game was supposed to be MechWarrior 3. When it was delayed, Zipper Interactive was brought in to create the interim Mechwarrior 3 as a stopgap measure, and this game was re-designated as Mechwarrior 4.

Endings

The game has two different endings depending on one critical choice you will make near the end.

Multiplayer

A "dedicated server" program was included if you want to host your own games, up to 16 players on a broadband connection.

References

In the final operation, one of the missions, you can find a building that's identified as "FASA Interactive", the developer of the game. And it's ID'ed as hostile.
