Mechwarrior Online is honoring a five-year-old player who died of brain cancer in May by selling a special mech, with the proceeds going completely to charity. Earlier this year, five-year-old Sarah Marie Alida Parries of Vancouver (who was a big fan of MechWarrior and played the game with her dad Jon) died from complications with inoperable brain cancer.
After her passing, fans within the MWO community asked that special hero mech be created to honor her and to be sold for charity. Piranha Games listened to the community and created "Sarah's Jenner," which it unveiled today (pictured left). Now that mech is available for $10 which will go to the Canadian Cancer Society.
"Sarah's Jenner" will be available until August 10. The mech can't be purchased with C-Bills, cannot be resold, and comes bundled with its own exclusive mech bay for storage.
