Hawken.

Recommended Posts

Ever heard of Hawken? If not, too bad. It's an indie game in development and it's basically a mech FPS.

Here's some gameplay footage.

Anyway, they're going into closed beta, and you can sign up for it. If you sign up via a link provided from someone else, you can help that person, as if they get three people to sign up, they can reserve their names (and the people that sign up get a unique link as well). Anyway, here's my link, needs two more for a name reservation.

Also, the game is planning on being F2P.

I'm somewhat interested, but it looks pretty graphics-intensive and as a guy whose laptop can't even run LoL well on the lowest settings without using Gamebooster, I am a bit worried that I won't be able to play it. I'll give it a shot, and if it works great. If not, oh well.

It runs off the Unreal engine, so it might be a graphics hog (that was the problem with Gears of War 1 and 2), but as long as it doesn't have gratuitous amounts of blood (people don't realize just how many things go on in Gears graphically, which is a big reason why it lagged so badly), shouldn't be too bad. Not 100% sure if my PC can handle it, tbh, but damn it all, I'm willing to try.

Well with Psygonis, I got my three required, so feel free to go for Psy so he can reserve his name.

Mine'll be Vy'drach on there, and I am happy it lets me use the apostrophe. So few places allow that.

Anyway, danke you two.

No clue. I reckon we'll get an email about it.

The actual PC release date is 12/12/12

PC seems to get it for free, while Xbox and Playstation won't.

Yeah, I noticed the release date on the registration page. Too bad it's only out a week before the apocalypse :P

And it really sucks for console players. But FPS games generally suck shit on consoles anyway compared to PC. And I don't have anywhere to plug in my PS3 anyway.

Oh, yes, I came close to starting this topic myself. :P

I registered off one of DICE's employee's links. Least I could do for my favorite game developer.

Niiiice. After MechWarrior 5's cancellation, this might feed my hunger for a mech game!

Considering I've seen a few concerns about graphics, I'd like to recommend Gamebooster.

Normally, when I run LoL, my peak FPS is somewhere around 15, and whenever anything exciting is happening it drops to <5. Running Gamebooster, it stays at a constant ~45 or so. So, assuming you're on lower graphical settings, it might also help quite a bit with this when it comes out. Just a suggestion.
