For those not familiar, Hawken is a new game being developed by indie studio Adhesive Games. It started off with a Kickstarter which allowed the team to create a AAA title. The cool part is that it’s free to play. It’s been in beta now for a while, only by invitation. Hawken will finally be available as a public beta for anyone to download, starting today at 12/12/2012 Noon PST.
As you can see, Hawken has beautiful graphics, rendered through the Unreal 3 engine. It features online multiplayer with a blend of FPS action and strategy. The online play features matchmaking and allows for games of technically unlimited amounts of players. Hawken will also support the Oculus Rift when it’s released, which will make for some awesome FPS mecha action.
