Report - Warhawk 2 details leaked

PS3 sequel rumoured for 2012 release.

Warhawk 2 is currently in development for PlayStation 3 with a 2012 launch rumoured, according to a new report.

Just Push Start has claimed that Sony recently invited a selection of players of the 2007 PlayStation 3 original to take a look at an early build of the sequel.

A few scraps of gameplay information has since seeped out of that showcase. Apparently the title will feature a story mode and full co-op. There will be online multiplayer support for up 32 players over 25 maps.

Warhawk expansion in Dec

Warhawk expansion in Dec

A whole new world.

Sony has unveiled plans to release a downloadable expansion pack for Warhawk in December.

Dubbed Omega Dawn, it brings with it a whole new world explored across five maps, all set at night-time and populated by building complexes and industrial towers. These fresh locations will support all the usual game-types, too, and will be the largest areas you have seen so far.

The other big toy is a KT-424 Combat Dropship; an aircraft capable of transporting seven soldiers as well as a vehicle and the pilot. It also has an enormous cannon on-board for a healthy dose of murder, and will be yours to play around with once you take control of a weapons factory on the map.

WarHawk patched

WarHawk patched

Stat and connectivity fixes.

Sony has officially deployed the 1.1 patch for PeacePigeon aka WarHawk, and this time it actually meant to release it and everything. Game director Dylan Jobe describes it as "a fast download", which will zap its way down your Interpipes when you next fire up WarHawk.

But what does it do, I hear you ask? It addresses "critical issues with stats and connectivity". Specifically, "stat connection, fetch/post fixes; significantly improved client connection stability; quad '????' ping display bug fixed; added support for Player-Ranked Servers; game synchronisation fixes due to fluctuating network conditions (packet-drop); crash fixes for end of game and split screen".

But wait, that sounds boring! Fortunately, Jobe and his Incog pals are also working on a 1.2 patch that introduces new layouts for existing maps, clan and Buddy list options for servers and other interesting tweaks.

Warhawk gets patched up

Warhawk gets patched up

Anti-cheater police introduced.

Warhawk game director Dylan Jobe has said two patches to improve game performance are currently being worked on.

He also vented his frustration at "stat-padders" and "griefers" on the official US PlayStation blog, and promised behaviour like that would no longer be tolerated. (We think he meant in the game though, rather than on the blog.)

To help enforce this, Jobe revealed that new "Warhawk Arbiters" would be picked from the community in the US and Europe to make sure you are not being naughty both in and out of game. If you are, then you could find yourself kicked from forums, or kicked from games, or have your statistics wiped, or be beaten up in the Ministry of Love until you betray Judith.

Public beta for WarHawk

Public beta for WarHawk

Date undecided for Europe.

These public beta tests are a good idea, it seems, and Sony's decided it wants to do one for WarHawk.

Americans will be able to test out the online shooter on 24th May, but we'll have to wait until Sony decides on a date for Europe. But rest assured that it will definitely happen.

The publisher's also cleared up confusion about whether it will be a downloadable title or a Blu-ray game. The answer is both. But those of you buying a boxed copy will be treated to a whole host of extras, like developer interviews, behind the scenes documentaries, demos - even a Bluetooth headset.
