Warhawk Bunch of New Stuff! [1.5 Patch Details]

#1 Edited by Sentry (4197 posts) -

So since the release of warhawk, what have we gotten? 2 new maps, 2 new vehicles (Dropship/APC), 2 new weapons (wrench/biofield), 2 new game modes (Hero/Collection), as well as a ton of side features such as clan rooms, more settings, new WH skins, and so on.

WELL, in 1.5, we will be getting yet another 'vehicle' as well as a new map. But that's not all... one word; TROPHIES. So a list of trophies leaked out on the net yesterday or so, listing 57 trophies for the game, and trust me, they are not going to be easy. A few of the trophies had a description about jetpacks, such as hit an enemy who is flying a jet pack, or kill another enemy on a jetpack. Also leaked a new map. There are 36 Bronze trophies, 13 Silver trophies, 7 Gold trophies, and of course, 1 Platinum trophy for acquiring all other trophies. Oh, and 10 of the trophies are hidden/secret ones...  So here they are;

Platinum Trophy

Now I know what you're probably thinking; holly shit, im never going to get that platinum trophy. Even the bronze trophies seem really hard. THESE are what trophies should be like; REAL SKILL.

Now granted not all of them require skill, but a hell of a lot of them do.

If you didn't notice, several of these trophies revealed that jetpacks exist and are coming with this patch;

Aerial Ballet -- While flying a jetpack, kill an enemy (who is also flying a jetpack) with any weapon other than the Rocket Launcher.
Are You Aim-Botting? -- Snipe an enemy who is flying a jetpack.

Who knows how they will work, but expect a blog post from our friend Dylan Jobe on it this month, in the coming weeks. It might be like a vehicle, where you press square to get on, or it might be like a weapon, where you pick it up then use it whenever. Who know, your guess is as good as mine!

Also revealed, a new map, which apparently has a... "salvage crane"?

Safety Violation -- Kill a distant enemy from on top of the salvage crane in Tau Crater.

The trophies also revealed that there will FINALLY be tutorial missions for all those newbies who have no clue what to do. :P Now some of the trophies will be retroactive, but some won't since they are new. The patch ALSO includes in-game music support!

It all comes out on August 27th! VERY soon.

So what do you think? I'm hyped to go back and play WH again, it is truly packed with gameplay.

very cool thanks for the info

#3 Posted by AndrewGaspar (2418 posts) -

Suh-weet.

#4 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

I'm totally going back to WH for this. Since I haven't had access to PSN for the past several months (out of country) I missed out on the new snow map, & APC vehicles. :( So this will totally bring me back for a new experience, especially with jet packs and trophies.

I really wonder how the jetpacks will work though... they could totally ruin the whole concept of tanks if they are not balanced right.

#5 Posted by pause422 (6179 posts) -

Awesome update, ty  for news, been wondering when it was coming. Any idea what the new 'vehicle' is going to be? if Jetpack isn't what they're refering to,cuz its not really a vehicle.

#6 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

No clue, have they been talking about a new vehicle? Jetpack is what I am hyped for to be honest, I LOVE them.

I just hope they balance it in a good way, like use it for limited time/limited gas/limited about of jetpacks on the level/limited spawn points for jetpacks, etc etc. But if they do balance it well, it could be bad ass. Imagine flying up with a rocket launcher and taking out a WH, or flying above and past a war on a bridge down below. It could be awesome.

Hey, thanks for the information Sentry. :)

You know, about three months ago, I sent Mr. Jobe (The guy in charge of the development team, I think) an email telling him about the idea of a jetpack being included, and he told me it sounded cool. I don't know if I'm the one who actually brought this on, but it's so sweet that I'm getting what I asked for!

#8 Edited by pause422 (6179 posts) -

Well you stated up there, we're getting another 'vehicle' and a new map :P thats the only place I've seen it talked about so far, did you just mean the Jetpack?

I'm totally into Jetpacks waay more now, since I been playing the Red Faction Guerilla Beta, there is jetpacks in that game and I would love them in anything  now lol

No problem. :) And yeah, trust me you weren't the only one asking for jetpacks! :P Not to burst your bubble, but there are Warhawk freaks in the PS forums who just shit out ideas after ideas of stuff for the game, its insane, a lot of the ideas are actually really good. But yeah a bunch of people there were asking for jetpacks for months now.

And if nailed it sounds really sweet, I loved them in GTA SA! :P

Sorry I meant jetpack, which is why i said "vehicle", lol sorry. XD
#10 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

From the trophies I am guessing these jetpacks are going to be quite fast. And people will be able to lock onto them with rockets, hence not being able to kill enemy in jetpack with rocket to unlock that trophy. And since the other one is named 'aim botting' or something, where you have to snipe someone flying a jetpack, that makes me think that they will go fast, a lot faster thenrunning lol.

#11 Posted by pause422 (6179 posts) -

ah ok, anyway that sounds really sweet.. can't wait for the update, I sometimes go awhile without playing games online until an update or some new content gets me back into it, and I'll gladly get into some warhawk again.

#12 Posted by Nik_NYG (558 posts) -

I never see the sropship in any of the games I play. I have the DL though. I don't know if I like the Idea of a jetpack.

#13 Posted by LiquidPrince (15921 posts) -

Damn... Some of those sound ridiculously hard.

#14 Posted by AndrewGaspar (2418 posts) -

It's cool to see something that people have been asking for for so long coming out. Jetpacks = :-)

#15 Posted by normajean777 (450 posts) -

ahh warhawk my fav. multiplayer game this gen i mean i am addicted to this game. i have been playing it at least once a day for about 4months. now i got it when i got my ps3 but i never got into it until one day. i just put it in and started to play and then i couldnt stop. the only problem i have is why does nobody plays hero man that mode is fun as hell. But i cant wait till this is released. they just keep on giving with this game. i wish the trophys were up today because i got the one were you have to drop a cluster bomb on a warhawk and kill it.

Yeah!  Especially the one where you have to kill the guy in a jet pack with another vehicle! 
#17 Posted by thelastguy (356 posts) -

Wow, I haven't played warhawk in a while.  So the only ones I would be able to get would be the clan one and the server one :P

#18 Posted by SOedipus (49 posts) -

Wow, I'm not even going to try to get those. I'll just start playing it again when the update is up and hopefully I just unlock them as I play.

#19 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

Yeah I alot of them are tough. Have you guys seen some of the PAIN trophies!? DAMN.

This is why I love trophies, because they aren't some shit like "Trophy Unlocked for beating level 2", that is just ridiculous. These actually require some skill, and thats what the whole concept was originally supposed to be about.

#20 Posted by pause422 (6179 posts) -

I noticed pain is getting them when the new expansion amusment part or w/e its called comes out in september, didn't see what they were though.. hard stuff?

#21 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

Yeah, they sound pretty hard. Just like PJ Eden trophies/SSHD trophies have been, and Uncharted trophies are pretty tough too. But I like the fact that games getting patched for trophies and hopefully future trophy titles as well, are actually difficult. Jeff from the PS Blog totally called out/pwned some guy who was pssing about trophies being too hard to get lol.

#22 Posted by calf_exercises (858 posts) -

man, they're rough.
That said I might go back to warhawk once the update is out

#23 Posted by Elsa (19 posts) -

I don't know that we'll see the new map or jetpacks directly in the 1.5 update... this is likely a new booster pack that they will sell separately.

The game update will allow for the trophy system, they may make the usual tweaks to gameplay, and it is supposed to give out the Participants and Winners knives to those who played in the tournament... but I really doubt that they would include a booster pack directly in a free content update - especially so soon after adding the two new free modes.

It's already been inferred that there will be four booster packs in total.  Dylan Jobe let this slip when discussing the trophies and that some of them would be attainable through the 4 booster packs.

So if you want jet packs... be prepared to fork over a few bucks for them.  Frankly the cost is low considering the game play value that a new vehicle and map adds to the game... especially as the vehicle is usually usable on the core maps as well.  The money we pay for those booster packs has likely supported much of the free updating and the continual care they take with the game.... so I hope people BUY the booster packs and don't rip off the developers by "sharing" them with their friends.

.... the person you rip off most by sharing pay content is yourself.  If the developers don't make a profit, then they can't re-invest in maintaining the existing game, making it better, or even working on a new  game for us.

#24 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

Well trophies are coming out then, so the booster pack has to come out around that time as well I would assume.

#25 Posted by filiwian (249 posts) -

Sounds great, it sounds hard but I'll give it a try.

This game is well past it's prime for me.  Incognito should focus on a new game.

For YOU, but there are still a LOT of people playing this game, a large community, that they want to support. And who says they aren't working on a new game? They are.

Problem with these trophies is that in order to get a Platinum Trophy, you need to be a General.  And less than 200 people in the world right now have that rank.

True. Well I will make it there eventually I think. :P Not THAT hard if you know what games to play and how to play them, just takes a looong time. I can get all the other trophies though, going to be hard, but its possible.
