Starhawk Will Also Let You Blow People Up in Space

Posted by patrickklepek (2223 posts) -

Space is rad, you guys, which is why I wanted to make sure you knew about this.

The original rumors about Starhawk portrayed an epic struggle between air and ground forces that allowed those whisking above the ground to fly away and actually join another battle happening in space. When Starhawk was revealed, however, it showcased ships, mechs and tanks safely planet-side.

Putting doubts to rest that space isn't cool, Lightbox Interactive has confirmed space combat.

"The outer space environment set that the art team here at LightBox Interactive has put together is really awesome," said Lightbox president Dylan Jobe on the PlayStation Blog. "Super fun to play on and looks great. Some of the elements are still being worked on and we don’t want to show it untill we’re 100% happy with it. But since sooo many of you guys asked, Sony was okay with me at least telling you that Starhawk was not just about terrain battles."

And now...Chris Remo of Irrational Games sings about Space Assholes.

Well, as long as you can just point your ship up and fly into space with no loading, I'm all for it. Otherwise, it doesn't seem like there's any point.

Some people call me the Space Asshole, some people call me the gangster of love. Some people call me Maurice.

Starhawk looks rad so I can just wait for that. I wish they put some space combat in Halo Reach multi player.
I always thought Warhawk looked really cool! Is there much of a community still playing it?

#23 Posted by JohnPaulVann (209 posts) -

Still not interested. Will keep playing Warhawk on PSX. Sequels do not have spirit of original. Fuck them.

This game will be a cheap space travel 
alternative to paying the $200k to fly on

The next logical step for the series was Space. 
No where else to go but up
