Mechmakers Piranha Games deployed an update yesterday to MWO's slowly-growing closed beta that adds CamoSpec, the all-important system for redecorating your mech. Well,
MechWarrior Online issue
was the first way mech pilots could apply paint to their hulking man-panzers, but Tuesday's patch formalizes the system within the game. I took a minute to pop into the MechLab to check it out in the video below.
More importantly to BattleTech aficionados, though, may be the patch's addition of a familiar voice. The clichéd but comforting robotic female AI tones of "
," as she's (affectionately?) known in the MechWarrior community, are finally integrated with last night's update. Your cockpit won't be as silent as it was before, especially as your mech boots up; Piranha sent along

of Betty. The patch also plugs in a night version of the existing Frozen City map, which finally gives pilots a reason to tap the N key to activate nightvision.
