==BattleTech: Flashpoint Expansion Pack==
Announced 21st August 2018 was the game's first expansion pack dubbed Flashpoint, due to release in November 2018. The expansion includes a new challenging mission type "Target Acquisition" which is focused on territory control best suited to light and medium 'Mechs, new tropical biome and three new 'Mechs
- the '[[Crab]]'', ''[[Cyclops]]'' and ''[[Hatchetman]]'' - the first 'Mech not taken from ''MechWarrior Online''.
The expansion's key feature is Flashpoints, high-stakes branches short-stories which are comprised of procedural missions linked together by new crew conversions and special events. To ramp up the intensity, some Flashpoint stories feature "Consecutive Deployments" in which players will not be able to repair their 'Mechs between missions.
