Hawken’s PAX East Trailer Gives Hope For A Grimy Space-Faring Future


Of all the things to combine into one, Adhesive Games has chosen Steampunk-esque visuals, first-person shooting mechanics, free-to-play sensibility, and lumbering, destructive mechs. Yes. Please.

What makes Hawken look so good isn't really the grime or the textures, but the brief splashes of color. Whether your talking about the lights flaring from a rocket, or the way lasers and explosions splash vibrancy on the environment, it's a smart, yet stylishly minimalistic design choice.

Hawken is, once again, an upcoming free-to-play game for the PC developed using Unreal Engine 3.
