Hawken Features

Feature"Free-to-play will change everything."

Hawken's publisher Mark Long on the free-to-play future, and his game's part in it.

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.
