Indie mech sim Hawken is taking beta sign ups ahead of its launch at the end of the year.

VentureBeat reports the game will release on December 12.

The free title will be supported by micro-transactions, with weapons, armour and defences mentioned as possible purchases.

If you want to get on board the multiplayer combat sim (and if you’ve seen any of our earlier coverage, how could you not?), visit the Hawken website and sign up for the closed beta.

Developer Adhesive Games has spun off a division called Meteor Games to handle the publishing side of things; Hawken will be the first title launches using its proprietary online platform.
