We like mechs here on Dealspwn. We like them a lot. So we're rather excited about the fact that F2P mech extravaganza Hawken is having a closed beta at the end of the month...and you can sign up now.
Developed by Adhesive Games and published by Meteor Entertainment, Hawken will enter its initial closed beta on October 26th, running until the 29th.
“The team has worked tirelessly to launch closed beta. Thanks to the awesome community, we learned a great deal from the Alpha 2 feedback,” said Khang Le, Creative Director and Co-founder of Adhesive Games. "We’re super excited about opening the gate and having a larger fan base playing Hawken for the very first time! I can’t wait to see how the general audience receives the game and all the crazy tactics they come up to dominate on the Hawken battlefield.”
“HAWKEN’s Alpha 2 testing was great. We broke a lot of things and that’s good. The more that we find wrong now; the smoother open beta will go,” added Mark Long, Meteor's CEO. “We scaled up an order of magnitude in daily players and the server ping was so good we had players on the West Coast of the United States joining the United Kingdom servers. We cannot wait to see what happens as more players join in on closed beta.”
