BattleTech & Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire GOG Pre-order Promotion

If you enjoy turn-based battles, tactical combat, giant mechs, and managing a squad of mercenaries, Harebrained Schemes' BattleTech will launch on April 24 and offer all of that in spades. And if you prefer story-driven CRPGs with real-time combat, classes and levels, then you probably know all about the upcoming May 8 release of Obsidian Entertainment's Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

And in case you didn't back the games' crowdfunding campaigns but are still certain you'll be picking them up, the folks over at GOG offer a couple of sweet deals: pre-order BattleTech or buy it before May 8 and get a free copy of Shadowrun: Returns, do the same with Deadfire before May 15 and get the Director's Cut of inXile's Wasteland 2.
