3D OEM versions

"Mercenaries" was one of the games that used to be shipped with early 3D accelerator cards. That's probably because with its open 3D environments and detailed mech designs it was a great title to showcase the cards' capabilities. At least these specific versions are known to exist:

- 3Dfx Voodoo Graphics Edition

- ATI 3D Rage Edition

- PowerVR PCX2 Edition

- S3 Virge Edition

- Matrox Mystique Edition
