Hawken's Live Action Trailer Stars Some Very Serious Men

Does upcoming multiplayer shooter Hawken need a story? It's multiplayer-only, so maybe not. I know I liked it better when I could pretend it was just based on some obscure, bleak manga where the only things that mattered were money and staying alive.


This rather expensive-looking trailer - directed by Jerry O'Flaherty, the art director on Gears of War (and former director of the cancelled Thundercats movie) - means my fantasy is no more. Instead, there are moody men with moody music and talk of the "soul of the planet".

Wait¿ Wait a gosh darn minute! I thought Hawken was a single-player mech game.

It's got ONLY multiplayer. Well, I guess that means I'll be skipping this.

I wish I'd been following the news on this more, so I'd have found out earlier.

I'd been waiting for Hawken for quite a while :'(

I failed at not knowing it was MP only.
