You’ll be wanting to watch the video for Hawken after the break. It’s got plenty of giant mechanical robot tank action, and it’s in development for PC by a small 9-person indie studio (that are mostly artists too).
The official website says:
What type of game is Hawken?
Hawken is a multiplayer mech combat game. The focus is on creating an intense and enjoyable battle experience that captures the feeling of piloting a heavy war machine while keeping the action fast-paced and strategic.
What game modes are supported?
We have two unique team game modes, as well as team deathmatch and free-for-all deathmatch.
When will it be released?
When it’s done. We’re not done yet, but development is going well and we should have more announcements soon.
What engine are you using?
Hawken has been developed using the Unreal Engine from Epic Games.
What platform is it for?
This is unknown at this point. We are interested in bringing Hawken to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
How much will it cost?
We don’t know yet, but our plan is for Hawken to be a downloadable title that will have a relatively low cost compared to boxed games.
