Hawken Open Beta Starts 12/12/12
One of the cooler bits of silliness over the last decade is how every year we’ve had one day where the year, day, and month were the same. My personal favorite was 06/06/06, but they’ve all been great, even 01/01/01 and 08/08/08! Alas, after 12 years this fun is finally coming to an end, and 12/12/12 is the last time we’ll be able to throw same number parties for another 89 years. What a damn shame if you ask me.
Perhaps the makers of the upcoming mech combat game Hawken sensed my pain, because they’ve scheduled the open beta to begin on 12/12/12. Hooray palindromes! The open beta will be preceded by a closed beta, scheduled to begin November 8 and last until the 13th. Keys will be given away on the Hawken social media platforms. For the open beta, players will be able to purchase bundles worth $5, $15, $30, and $60 for items that will be made available to them when the open beta starts.
Here’s the press release:
