New Warhawk Update Details Confirmed, Slated for August 27
Burnout Paradise might be the current king of free downloadable content on consoles, Warhawk is certainly giving it a run for its money. After releasing the fairly significant v1.4 update last month, we learned last week of a new update coming on August 27 that would add, among other things, trophy support. Game director Dylan Jobe has posted on PlayStation.Blog detailing many of the new features the v1.5 update will be bringing later this month — provided there are no hitches during certification.
In addition to trophies (of which there will be 56, some of which will be retroactive as previously reported), custom soundtrack support will be added. New training tutorials will make it easier for new owners and returning vets like myself to get back in on the action. The four tutorials, all of which are offline, will focus on the game’s three modes of transport in the game: infantry, ground vehicles, and aircraft. Don’t expect anything advanced, but it should lay the groundwork for anyone.
Some other minor features will be added as well, including the ability to retract clan invites, new paint schemes and insignias to tag your aircraft with, a ceremonial knife for those who played in the recent GGL Warhawk tournament, and a server color-coding for “rookie” servers. It seems like a lot of what they’re trying to do is help ease new players in, which is a wise decision with the recent price drop. Besides, they want people to keep playing their game and check out all of that downloadable content that they don’t give away for free.
