Hawken gameplay trailer takes on a dropship

Sunday, 4th March 2012 23:00 GMT By Brenna Hillier

I dub this day “Christmas in March” to honour receipt of a new Hawken teaser trailer. Put aside just over a minute to do something nice for your eyeballs.

The indie mech sim is due to launch on December 12. The free-to-play game netted a cool $10 million in funding from the same investors as League of Legends, probably because it looks totally awesome in every way. Sign up for the beta immediately.

The mech genre is having something of a renaissance in the free-to-play sphere at the moment, with MechWarrior Online and Tactics both expected this year.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    I’m really looking forward to this one.

    And I can’t help but hope that profits from this will allow them to develop a single-player campaign, because what they have here is a really interesting take on mechs. The mechs on show are incredibly organic and the way some of them move and feel certainly isn’t the Mechwarrior 2 I played way back when.

    Mildly optimistic about this.
