Free-to-play team-based mech shooter Hawken is finally coming to PS4 and Xbox One next month. Or, more specifically, 1st July on Xbox One and 8th July for PS4.
Remember Hawken, the free-to-play mech shooter that was billed as the next big thing? The company that owns APB Reloaded, Reloaded Games, has just bought it.
Free-to-play mech shooter Hawken is being relaunched via Steam as its team continues to work towards a full release.
Existing players will be sent Steam access codes to game from today and must use Valve's client to log in from now on. All users should receive a code by this time next week, publisher Meteor Entertainment has promised.
The game won't be publicly available until later in the month, after all existing players have been resettled.
Mark Long, CEO of Hawken publisher Meteor Entertainment, loved a piece of comic art from the game so much he blew up a print to frame and hang on the out-facing wall of his office. It's the first thing workers and visitors see when they enter the building, and the last thing they see when they leave.
In amongst all the doom and gloom of the UK high street, a Currys PC World in London (Tottenham Court Road) is trying something new - maybe even future-facing.
Hawken's already made a splash, even before its open beta began earlier this week. When the trailer for Khang Lee's vision of a future corrupted by nano-viruses and patrolled by angry, sexy mechs debuted last April, the world watched in awe. And the games industry watched in envy, beginning a long courtship period between several publishers and the independent developer Adhesive.
Free-to-play mech shooter Hawken enters open beta next week, Meteor Entertainment has announced.
On Wednesday 12th December 2012, aka 12/12/12, the open beta will be accessible worldwide except in China.
Developer Adhesive Games will use the open beta to implement feedback from the closed beta, including features, balance changes and improvements. These updates will be rolled out in waves during the open beta event, and feedback to this will influence the final version of the game.
Free-to-play mech combat game Hawken will be entering its first closed beta on 26th October.
Developer Meteor Entertainment announced the beta, which will run though 29th October, on its official forums.
All Alpha 2 participants will automatically receive an e-mail invite to join the beta. Otherwise codes will be doled out on the game's Facebook and twitter pages. Additionally, you can register for the Hawken beta here.
Free-to-play mech combat game Hawken will launch with Oculus Rift support upon release on 12th December.
This makes the Unreal 3 Engine-based Hawken the second game to officially support the tech, alongside Doom: BFG Edition.
Of course the snazzy VR goggles won't be commercially available then, but those who pledge upwards of $300 on its Kickstarter will get a dev kit come December.
Eye-popping indie mech dust-up Hawken is getting a series of supporting live-action films, publisher Meteor Entertainment has announced.
Hawken, the multiplayer indie mech shooter that attracted significant internet buzz last year with its stunning announcement trailer, launches on 12th December as a free-to-play title.
As reported by VentureBeat, developer Adhesive Games hopes to pick up revenue from the sale of virtual goods such as additional weapons and armour.
Gameplay will be fast paced and session-based, with players opting for either 15 or 30 minute skirmishes.
