For all you mech fans out there, Hawken, the free to play title developed by Adhesive Games is entering the open beta stage next week, on 12.12.12. For those who don’t know what kind of game Hawken is, it’s a free-to-play, online, multiplayer, mech-based, fast paced, first-person shooter; that was a mouthful…
Being developed on the Unreal Engine 3, Hawken doesn’t need a powerful PC to run. Keep in mind that the game is still in Beta and optimization might not yet be where it should.
Generally speaking, Unreal Engine 3 developed games won’t win any “beauty pageants” but I am really impressed with how Hawken turned out. With all the action taking place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the aesthetic of the game is exactly what this kind of surroundings needs.
If you don’t want to wait another week to play Hawken, you can still buy your way in. For more information visit: www.playhawken.com.
