HAWKEN’s open beta is set for the 12th of December of this year. However, the HAWKEN team is giving visitors the chance to get hands-on months before its release so Press and Gamers alike can ge a taste of this much desired title. Furthermore, the creators of HAWKEN will give an exclusive view on the dynamics of the gameplay during their presentations at the ESL Stage in Hall 8 on Thursday.
