The Future of Hawken: Mechanic Mechs and PhysX Physics
What don’t we know about Hawken?
We know it’s about 20-foot-tall mechs shooting each other to pieces on levels filled to the brim with choke points and verticality. We know it’s free to play. We know the open beta has been about as successful as an open beta can be. We know there’s a multifaceted media blitzkrieg well underway, including books and a web series. We know it’s coming to PC, and it will make an Android appearance as well. And we know Hawken takes place in world where the mega-corporations rule, paying homage to oligarchic decay established in science fiction past.
We know a lot about Hawken, but only now do we have an understanding of where Adhesive and Meteor plan to take the gameplay in the future. Class-based warfare, destructible environments, map diversity, and truly integrated eSports support are just the tip of the iceberg.
