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.
- From this point forward, a Steam account will be required to play HAWKEN. HAWKEN will no longer be playable using the existing launcher and the game will only be accessible through Steam.
- Over the next 7 days, we'll be granting current pilots immediate access before new pilots can obtain HAWKEN via the Steam store. Read more about this process in our Steam Transition Guide.
- Once you have the game downloaded on Steam, you will be able to play the latest version of HAWKEN, i.e. our February Update. This patch will be missing some core content and you may run into some of our QA testers still working on final polish. Right now, we're aiming for a formal release of the update in the next couple of weeks.
- New account creation is being disabled until the full February release.
