The Megacities Of The Future Are Where Giant Mechs Shoot Each Other

The mech combat genre is one that's died off in recent years. Indie shooter Hawken is hoping to change that, and for something being developed by "a small independent game studio" looks absolutely amazing.

Set in what looks like an Asian megacity of the future, Hawken is a first-person, multiplayer mech combat game that will hopefully be released on 360, PS3 and PC (though it could be any combination of them!). It's planned as a downloadable game, and has been built using Epic's Unreal Engine.

There's no word on a release date. Which is a shame, because boy, this looks great. You can see some screenshots at the game's site below.

its funny how in 9 months, a "small" studio can put something like this together, and blizzard spent half of my life making starcraft 2 and it was suckish, or any of the more recent call of duty games (modwar2 etc) seeing as they looked like they were just thrown together. ntm the unreal engine is more powerful than a lot of people think.
