Warhawk enters PlayStation Home

Patch 1.3 to add other new stuff, too.

Warhawk game director Dylan Jobe has announced some PlayStation Home functionality for Incog's online war-game, and promises much more to come. Handy for those of you on the beta.

First up is the ability to form groups, meet in Home apartments, discuss tactics and then launch games. Games launched from Home "show up in the global games list in an attractive gold colour". Nice one, Dylan. All this is going into patch 1.3, coming soon at no extra cost to consumers.

PlayStation Home is Sony's upcoming online world, in which players will be able to communicate with one another, set up houses and apartments and show off their in-game achievements, as well - obviously - as coordinating game sessions. It's been likened to Second Life and is due out this year.

"Now this is just the beginning of what we're gonna to be doing with Home and there's some really neat stuff on the horizon," Jobe says in a Sony US blog post. "I'd love to show you more of the cool Home stuff that we're working on but I suspect I'd get a PR-shank to the spine...or possibly a lung."

Also coming in the 1.3 patch, which is in testing right now, are two new troop items to help rebalance the on-foot stuff. The Bio-field Generator produces a healing field and can be attached to walls, vehicles and so on, while the Mechanic's Field Wrench is for repairing vehicles by whacking them repeatedly.

Other new bits include expanded voice-over-IP support, some new paint schemes and insignias, and possibly some new server options if they test well.

Jobe says he'll post an update on the Sony blog when he can talk about the patch release timing, and the Sony blog is where you should go for all the minute details and images about what's going into the free download.
