    Starhawk


    The long rumored sequel to the PS3 multiplayer only game Warhawk, Starhawk is finally officially revealed

    This time around it will have a full singleplayer aspect to go along with the multiplayer side and will be a retail-only release (Warhawk was one of the first full games available on PSN for download). It's a 3rd person shooter like it's predecessor but takes place in a different universe and is said to have different gameplay mechanics so it's not really a sequel...and it has mechs

    I played a demo of Warhawk way back when and i did find it cool but that was back before i really even got into multiplayer so i'm looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.

    There's a decent amount of info on the game over at G4 if you're interested:

    and here's a video with gameplay and dev discussion:

    I wonder if they'll run a discount special on Warhawk when it gets close for Starhawk to come out. Might have to check it out.

    Indecision may or may not be my problem.

    that's not a bad thought there, I wouldn't be surprised if they did do something like that, maybe a special deal with all DLC bundled etc.



    I'm really interested in the building feature of starhawk, it has a lot of potential. It's like mixing a TPS with an RTS and a hint of tower defense, all in a multiplayer match. It should help eliminate map issues like choke points too since the players themselves are basically building the map on the fly, and what is built can be destroyed as well

    hmmm.....are we to speculate that the lightly rumored beta did actually take place for a game that is, at a minimum, still 7 months away?

    lol very well Rookie

    I saw the sort of Red Dead connection when i was watching some video interview with the devs and they were talking about how they went with a western influence. I 'd be lying if I said i wasn't intrigued by the Red Dead in space idea lol. Maybe it's because i really enjoyed all the games in the blender that Rookie had mentioned (RDR, Red Faction, Borderlands, and Warhawk) that i'm still pretty curious about the game lol

    although there are no details on it, it has been confirmed that there will be a beta at some point

    Lightbox Interactive’s Dylan Jobe confirmed the beta but kept details vague. "There will be a Beta, As for details on timing and contents, or whether it’ll be a closed or open testing, we’re fresh out of luck: ..we just can’t talk any specifics right now — stay tuned to the blog for more info."
    i like hearing this because i really would like to see the build and battle thing in action

    I have to say I loved Warhawk played the crap out of it ... and I am really looking forward to Starhawk.

    Granted they are not as technically intense as a lot of the games we normally pay but the whole experience in Warhawk was great. Looks like they really kept that end up.

    If I recall correctly they were sending out invites based on warhawk stats and forum activity etc.

    Considering I only ever played a demo of the game I'm not expecting an invite any time soon

    Ok I jumped on last night for a little bit, at first blush .... this game is going to kick ass. I've already made a mental note to buy it outright when it comes out.

    The maps are huge and visually very cool to look at. All make you feel you are definitely on some alien world that is just nothing like home.

    The one real departure from the way Warhawk is structured is that gear doesn't just spawn like it did before. There is a menu that you can pic items to construct, like Warhawks, and Vehicle bays, automated turrets and huge manned beam cannon, even jetpacks. Some things are like the jetpacks are a dispenser that gives the whole team access to the equipment.

    All of the constructed items can be purchased from the tree by points that you and the team accumulate from kills, flag captures etc.

    Very cool so far and pretty highly polished for a beta ... had some glitching with respawns that I noticed and I think the initial AR that the game provides is PAINFULLY under powered.

    But all told after about an hour of play ... I'm in for this one.

    I'll keep you guys posted.

    It's funny you did bring that up I just got done reading a statement from LightBox telling people it's ok to talk and even post video they want us talking to our communities about the game *LOL* they also said that they are working to change the EULA to be more clear.
