Adhesive Games has checked their fuel levels, re-supplied their Tow Launchers and generally primed their engines all in preparation for the release of their upcoming Mech FPS, Hawken. After having had a successful few rounds of closed beta testing, Adhesive has decided their new FPS is finally ready for all mech-pilots. Those of you who have still yet to try Hawken can do so starting on December 12th, when the game will be made available worldwide.

The term “Open Beta” has in recent years has in many cases unofficially marked the actual release of the game, with players able to start progressing without fears of further beta wipes. Hawken’s original release date was set for December 12th and now it seems the official launch will be delayed until early 2013.

The good news is Adhesive Games seems committed to staying in touch with the communities feedback. According to Hawken’s Lead animator Chris Lalli: “Open beta is our chance to implement all the good feedback we’ve gotten from closed beta players on the forums, and deliver the changes the community wants to see.”

What do you wish to see added into Hawken during Open Beta? Let us know.

  1. Hope the optimize the game for AMD/ATI

    I run an amd/ati build and can play any other UE3 game at medium to high. I got horrible performance at lowest possible settings.

    • dude an ati can handle any game maxed out at above 60 frames per second. that of course if your talking about the ati radeon hd 7970. you on the other hand dont realize their are tons of different models and makes of graphics card. you can say- oh i have a nvidia this pc rocks when in accuallity it can be like a geforce 6200 witch sucks at almost every game. and im assuming you have a succky ati card probably intergrated. you can buy a more expensive card to and play games just fine maxed out regardless of weather or not its ati/amd. unless your on a laptop then your srewed and will just have to buy a new one. research my friend
