New Hawken Gameplay Trailer Will Rock[en] Your Socks[en]

The latest Hawken gameplay trailer somehow manages to make the upcoming multiplayer mech game look better than ever.

The general consensus is that Hawken looks fantastic. But Hawken has looked incredible since early 2011, so how is it that it somehow looks better with every new trailer? Some kind of dark techno-magic, perhaps, although I suppose it might also just be part of the normal iterative process of game development. Whatever the reason, this new gameplay trailer has me seriously anxious to get behind the wheel and tear it up in a grimy, smog-choked post-industrial hellscape.

It still looks a little faster-paced than I generally prefer my mech games, but to be fair I haven't really been in a cockpit since Ghost Bear's Legacy, and I imagine any reservations I have now will fade away quickly once the fur starts to fly. The visual style is fantastic, it sounds great and while the game world probably won't be overly deep, it looks nothing short of brilliant.

The free-to-play PC mech shooter Hawken is set to go live on December 12, but you can sign up for the beta now at playhawken.com.

These mechs were made for Walk(en)
and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these Mech(en)
are gunna walk all over you(en)

it looks a little fast paced for me too

Loved the fast-paced mechs à la Zone of the Enders. I wasn´t aware of this game, but i´m pleasantly surprised by this video.

My. Fucking. God. I have to play this. Now if only I were a PC gamer...

Stay away from Armored Core then. The speed in that series practically gives you bullet time in other games after you get used to it.

YES! I've been so hyped for this game since I heard about it months ago.

I'm more used to Mechs like Mechwarrior; slow, lumbering monstrosities that take a hundred nukes to kill.

But this still looks badass! Can't wait, not nerely enough good mech games out there.

Is that a battleship raid?! Holy s---- this is gonna be awesome. Although there probably wont be any mech customization element in it other than guns. But im still sold !! Now if only i got my beta key...

OT:
I'm SERIOUSLY hoping I get chosen for the BETA, which I signed up for the first time ya'll ran a story on this game.

With ZOE Collection: HD coming out (hopefully) this year plus Hawken...
O mecha, you so lovely.

Now, if only, that FPS Gundam game for the Wii got a NTSC-U release.
^_^

Stay away from Armor Core, Andy. I affectionately refer to that game as a methhead mecha game from how twitchy and quick it is.

Also, am I the only one who noticed how the person in the vid seemed to be getting lag kills with that machinegun?

I cant WAIT for this game, it looks GREAT! Between this and MWO, this is going to be a great year.

This game really is looking good. If nothing else I'm definetly going to be keeping an eye on it.

Am I the only one who subconsciously replaced the "n" in the parentheses with "m" and then added "robots" to the end? Anyway... looking forward to this.

Yet another grey game, *sigh.

Well looks like I've got a deadline for finishing my gaming rig now. DO WANT!

ohhhhhhhhh release on my birthday, you shouldn't have
also: this looks awesome

When I signed up on their site I got a message saying "Congratulations, Soldier.
You have elected to take part in the Hawken closed beta."

Is this right, or do they just send that to everyone?? it seems strange they would say it straight away. Other than that, I think I may just have a heart attack from awesome overload.

As it turns out I have a fetish for first person mech games....

They opened the beta up so they do it for everyone, you can get the same thing if you sign up at Trion for the End of Nations mailing letter.

Haha, you make a good point there!

Does this mean they've decided not to pursue a console release? That would suck...

Whoah that looks amazing! But 12.12.12 X_X . . . . they probably are trying to hype the game to secure decent sales but sometimes waiting too much for something kills it for me and i lose my hype.

Seriously, if anything is going to convince me to get a new PC and re-enter the world of PC gaming, it is Hawken.
