The mecha genre has been through a lot of ups and downs. Iron Brigade might have made it relevant again but Armored Core meanwhile struggles to stay consistent. But Hawken looks to bring something amazing to the genre on December 12, 2012 along with some other juicy tidbits.
Hawken is going to be free-to-play, which is all the rage these days. It’s also aiming to fit a variety of computer specs, both high and low-end. And if you like what you’re seeing so far, the beta signups have started for those eager to get in on the action. In fact, if you get three friends to join with you, you’ll be able to make your callsign before the beta begins, letting you beat the name claiming rush of a new title.
I think you should get in on it ASAP. Big name indie games these days are chock full of quality these days, and Hawken has its own special charm for detail among mecha game.
