So…. there’s this incredible new game with a trailer that has recently surfaced. The story takes place in what appears to be a sort of dystopian future with Asian-inspired architecture, where these giant mechs are encumbered to bear fisticuffs and duke it out in barren city landscapes in order to survive.
Developer Adhesive Games has been working on this title for only 9 months, but what you may soon see is perhaps one of those mind-altering events certainly reinvigorates one’s passion for the independent developer community.
The game is called Hawken, a first-person multiplayer mech combat title, and it is based on the Unreal 3 engine. It will be brought to the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 as a downloadable title. Yes, that’s right—chances are you’ll be paying less than $20 for this game.
We don’t know the fate of a certain other mech-based game, so this may be one of those rare chances to experience the genre until perhaps that Steel Battalion sequel. So, without further ado, prepare to have your brain a sploded.
