Great news for mecha fans as Meteor Entertainment announced the closed beta dates for HAWKEN. HAWKEN is the free-to-play, first-person mech shooter developed by Adhesive Games. The game enters its initial closed beta on October 26th until the 29th.
Khang Le, Creative Director and Co-founder of Adhesive Games. Le said:
“The team has worked tirelessly to launch closed beta. Thanks to the awesome community, we learned a great deal from the Alpha 2 feedback. We’re super excited about opening the gate and having a larger fan base playing HAWKEN for the very first time! I can’t wait to see how the general audience receives the game and all the crazy tactics they come up to dominate on the HAWKEN battlefield.”
CEO of Meteor Entertainment Mark Long added:
“HAWKEN’s Alpha 2 testing was great. We broke a lot of things and that’s good. The more that we find wrong now; the smoother open beta will go. We scaled up an order of magnitude in daily players and the server ping was so good we had players on the West Coast of the United States joining the United Kingdom servers. We cannot wait to see what happens as more players join in on closed beta.”
HAWKEN is one of the most anticipated games of 2012. It is helping usher in the next generation of AAA quality, free to play games. HAWKEN has also won more than 20 awards since June of 2012 and is the recipient of much media praise. Here is hoping that the team will deliver!
