Steam acquired another free-to-play game for their arsenal this week, as Adhesive Games announced that Hawken will be switching to Steam’s platform. The transition is expected to make the game more functional and accessible, therefore building a broader audience.
Those already in the Hawken realm should expect the game to be down while the full transition is made. “As we continue to focus on a full release in 2014, expanding our reach is a major priority for us.” said Adhesive Games. “Today, we’re bringing LIVE services down to begin our transition to Steam. This is quite a major shift for us, so the process will not be instantaneous.”
As of now, Adhesive Games has disabled account creation until the process is complete, which is projected to take place some time this month. “By the time our full February release is good to go, we want all of our existing users to have already made the transition over to Steam. This should help reduce the stress on our services immensely. “
