Hawken to support Oculus Rift upon launch this December

VR goggles mech for a good time.

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.

Developer Adhesive Games has rejigged the cockpit and HUD to accommodate for being able to swivel one's head around inside a giant cockpit.

"This is going to be a great opportunity for the player to experience Hawken in the best possible way," said creative director of Adhesive Khang Le.

Currently the Oculus Rift Kickstarter is at $1,953,986, nearly octupling its $250,000 goal, with four days to go before the deadline 1st September.
