Hawken E3 2012 trailer goes live-action

The sad-eyed waif central to this Hawken trailer completely fails to capture the emotion most of us would feel upon being granted a mecha.

Hawken seems so beautiful it makes you wonder why they didn’t just show the game, but this series of shorts was created by Gears of War art director Jerry O’Flaherty. Check the first episode out below, courtesy of Machinima.

The free-to-play Hawken launches on December 12, through Gaikai. Sign up here.

Thanks, EvilAvatar.
