Mechs are awesome. That’s one of the indisputable facts of the universe. And now the universe will get a little more awesome on December 12, 2012 when Adhesive Games’ Hawken blasts into action.
Read on for more info about this indie game you won’t want to miss.
Hawken is an online mech shooter that’s going to be free-to-play and will be published by Adhesive Games’ new publishing division, Meteor. The game was showed off at PAX in 2011, and it sported impressive visuals and fast, mech-based shooting action. While some mech games are plodding and slow, it looks like Hawken will try to capture more of that frantic Call of Duty-style feel.
According to an interview with VentureBeat, Khang Le–co-founder and Adhesive’s chief executive–said that “those with good PCs and decent broadband connections will be able to play the game at 60 frames per second. But [others] may experience the game at around 30 [fps].”
Beta sign-ups are also available. If you refer enough people to the beta, your spot is guaranteed. I imagine the site is receiving lots of traffic, so don’t get discouraged if you have to try multiple times to get it to load.
