What you need to know

  • Mekko is a dolphin controlling a mech that was first revealed shortly before the release of Bleeding Edge.
  • Mekko was not available at launch, being pushed back to allow the team to prioritize some other patches.
  • Ninja Theory has announced today that Mekko is now playable in Bleeding Edge.

The roster for Bleeding Edge, Ninja Theory's 4v4 brawler, just got a little bigger. Mekko, the mech-piloting dolphin we first saw at a preview event a few weeks ago, wasn't available at launch. That's changed with the latest patch and Ninja Theory has announced that Mekko is now playable in Bleeding Edge.

Mekko is a unique ranged tank, with special abilities allowing him to control the battlefield and push opponents around. In addition to Mekko, this latest patch also adds a new board, new emotes and some new music, as well as a few general bug fixes and quality of life improvements.
