Hawken is a free-to-play, mech-based online multiplayer FPS from Adhesive Games and Meteor Entertainment. The game allows players to pilot different mechs in epic, fast-paced, strategic battles in several game modes, including team and free-for-all deathmatch. Hawken also has mech and character development, with other planned persistent features such as clan and map domination.
During last night's Sony PlayStation event, a new trailer for Hawken was shown to announce that the game would be heading to PlayStation 4 in the near future. According to VG247, after the event, 505 Games confirmed that Hawken would also be released for XBox One.
The Hawken Facebook page has been updated with the news that Reloaded Games is now the owner of the IP. The team is working in conjunction with Reloaded to get the forums back up and running and that other back end systems are being overhauled.
The Hawken team has posted the April patch notes that includes the news that camouflages are now global for all mechs. In addition, the team has announced that significant changes have been made to the game's economy and that co-op team death match is now live in game.
Hawken players will now be required to have a Steam account in order to play the game. The development team felt this was the right move to enhance the game prior to its retail release sometime later this year. In addition, the team looks forward to bringing thousands of new faces into the mech-themed game.
Hawken has been updated with a new patch called Ascension. The update brings many new features and improvements into the game, most notably a new player progression system that changes the way players level-up, gain XP and unlock upgrades for both their pilots and their Mechs.
