Hawken looks good enough as it is. But the prospect of playing the game using a virtual reality headset seems too bananas to be true.

The Oculus Rift VR headset will be compatible with the upcoming multiplayer shooter, to the extent that not only will it work with the system, but Rift owners will get a feature where they can move their heads around inside the cockpit independent of the main mech viewpoint. So, yeah, just like you would in real life.
