The first closed beta for Hawken wrapped up earlier this week, but Meteor Entertainment have announced that there's to be another beta session running from this evening through to November 13th.
If you dropped us an email and participated the first time round, you should be able to login and get going without any difficulties. If you do have issues, though, uninstall the original client and then reinstall it again.
We still have plenty of beta codes left, so if the idea of stomping around in a fat mech and blowing up your friends appeals, then do drop us an email at [email protected] and we'll help you get set up as soon as possible.
You can find more details here, but if this is the first time jumping into the fray, follow these steps to join the action when the second beta goes live later today (it's currently unavailable at the time of writing, but Meteor have said it should be up "tonight", presumably because the servers are US-based, we imagine).
Here's what to do once you've nabbed a beta code:
- Go to http://playhawken.com/enlist
- Create your account
- Enter your beta key code in the REDEEM CODE field
- Follow Download instructions.
- Log on in the beta session window: November 8th(tonight) -13th
We'll have a couple of staff impression pieces for you soon.
