Harebrained Schemes and Paradox have announced Urban Warfare, the next major expansion for Battletech, complete with a trailer which makes me feel immensely sad that Future Cop LAPD is no longer a thing.

Battletech: Urban Warfare is priced at $19.99 and will include all sorts of features based around city combat, such as buildings blocking line of sight, collateral damage, enhanced destruction, floods, explosive fuel trucks, and more.

“Urban Warfare delivers one of the biggest 'Mech combat player fantasies there is: Fighting it out on the streets and rooftops of epic sci-fi cityscapes,” said Mitch Gitelman, co-founder of Harebrained Schemes and game director of Battletech. “The truth is, we've wanted to build city combat environments and gameplay for years, so we're thrilled to be finally bringing this experience to Battletech.”

As you’d expect from an expansion, Urban Warfare will also add an assortment of new technologies to discover, new BattleMechs, new flashpoints, and a trio of new enemy vehicles to blow to smithereens.

Battletech: Urban Warfare comes to PC on June 4th.
