Check out this incredibly cool live-action trailer for the video game Hawken. Even if you don't know what Hawken is, you should still watch this! This is the first of a series of digital shorts that we will see. They were directed by Gears of War creative director Jeremiah O'Flaherty. There's some great designs and it's a solid combination of live-action and CGI. I love how the mech armor was done.
Hawken is a mech-based first-person shooter. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic human-colonized planet industrialized to the point of collapse, in which the hunt for resources has become a battle for survival. Four game modes are planned for release: team deathmatch, free-for-all deathmatch, "siege" and another yet-specified unique team game mode; Khang Le has said that they also want to do a co-op"Horde" game mode, resource- and time-permitting. Seven to eight unique maps have been planned for the game on release, with plans to provide additional downloadable content afterwards. There will be three different mech types: a light type, a heavy type, and an all-around type.
This is a free-to-play FPS mech combat game scheduled for launch on 12.12.12. It is the first title to come from indie developer, Adhesive Games, and publisher, Meteor Entertainment.
