Hawken (stylized as HAЩʞEN) is a first-person mech combat game in development by Adhesive Games, an independent development studio that grew from a small original group of five people who left Project Offset. An announcement trailer for the game showing in-game graphics and animation was released on March 4th, 2011. Based on what has been seen in the trailer, battles will take place from a first-person cockpit perspective. The game is being developed using Unreal Engine 3 and goes into open beta on December 12th, 2012 with a final release in early 2013. The developers have made it known the game is going to be free to play, with micro transactions available, much along the business model of League of Legends.
Based on recent trailers, it seems the player can set up turrets. So far, the weapons shown include gatling guns, sniper rifles, and rocket launchers. The game also features jetpacks, which allow players to traverse the game's seemingly vertical environments. Adhesive Games has that Hawken will feature deathmatch, team deathmatch, siege and a yet unannounced "unique" game mode. Whether they are actually unique or just mild spins on traditional modes is as yet unknown. The cockpit itself serves as the game's HUD, displaying relevant Information such as health and ammunition remaining.
