'Hawken' (ALL) Sets Closed Beta Date, Accepting Sign-ups

Hawken is a multiplayer mech combat game with its focus on creating an intense and enjoyable battle experience that captures the feeling of piloting a heavy war machine while keeping the action fast-paced and strategic.

Hawken  is the free-to-play, first-person mech shooter featuring two unique team game modes, as well as team deathmatch and free-for-all deathmatch.

Greater than all of this has been the positive feedback from the fans that were lucky enough to be a part of the Alpha 2 testing.  Don’t miss your chance to get in on the action early too!  Register today for a chance to be invited to closed beta which will run from October 26th until the 29th.

“The team has worked tirelessly to launch closed beta. Thanks to the awesome community, we learned a great deal from the Alpha 2 feedback,” said Khang Le, Creative Director and Co-founder of Adhesive Games.  Le goes on to exclaim, ”We’re super excited about opening the gate and having a larger fan base playing Hawken for the very first time! I can’t wait to see how the general audience receives the game and all the crazy tactics they come up to dominate on the Hawken battlefield”

Hawken’s Alpha 2 testing was great. We broke a lot of things and that’s good. The more that we find wrong now; the smoother open beta will go,” explains CEO of Meteor Entertainment Mark Long. “We scaled up an order of magnitude in daily players and the server ping was so good we had players on the West Coast of the United States joining the United Kingdom servers.  We cannot wait to see what happens as more players join in on closed beta.”

Hawken has been developed using the Unreal Engine from Epic Games, and the developers are interested in bringing the game to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC as a digital downloadable title.
