Hawken demonstrated on Gaikai in nVidia keynote

Monday, 28th May 2012 07:13 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Check out indie mech sim Hawken in action, running on Gaikai and nVidia’s GPU-less technology.

Hawken developer Adhesive has signed the anticipated multiplayer game to be streamed by Gaikai upon release in December. The fancy new nVidia tech which powers the partnership should mean you can run the game on a range of low-powered devices like tablets, despite its graphical grunt. You’ll also hear from Gaikai founder, Dave Perry, regarding some of the service’s cooler features, like instant drop-in multiplayer powered by social networks. Hello, future.

Thanks, EvilAvatar.

    With a thick client I only need to be afraid of 0day game releases when they are online games. With this, I can’t even imagine what would happen to a cloud when a game like Diablo 3 is released. If a “simple” authentication gets hammered so bad as they are nowadays I really don’t know how would these servers handle that much of a power drain :(
