Starhawk on PS3 Looks to be a Giant Chimera of Awesome

Pixels or Death's Patrick Lindsey writes:

"Starhawk, Lightbox Interactive’s PS3 sequel to 1995′s Warhawk, is a lot of things. Part shooter, part RTS, part giant multiplayer frag-fest, and judging by some early looks, largely awesome as well.

In a recent interview with PlayStation Blog, senior producer Harvard Bonin at Sony Santa Monica Studios gave some reasons as to why you should be excited about this game. Here are some of the key points:" (Dev, Lightbox Interactive, Next-Gen, PS3, SCEA San Diego Studios, Starhawk)

"Interactive’s PS3 sequel to 1995′s Warhawk"

more like a successor rather than a sequel

More like the sequel to 2007's Warhawk.

Could be 1995's warhawk

Except it didn't have a storyline but yeah have to agree with you.

2007's Warhawk doesn't have a story! so, it's rightful to say that Starhawk is a sequel to the one released in 1995

Starhawk is my most anticipated multiplayer game. I have a feeling that it could be one of the best ever. I am also disappointed that I wont get my hands on it sooner, but it will probably be perfect when they release it considering who's working on it.

I think this is my most anticipated game next year.... yup...

Things like this make my "My 360 broke and I can't decide if I want a new one or a PS3" debate all the more difficult. Dammit.

Hmm well I was the biggest xbox 360 fanboy for the longest time but after my 4th xbox broke and I got tired of paying for live, I picked up a PS3 and it was the best decision I ever made I love my PS3 (sorry fanboys) and I think it's a better game console than xbox but it's really up to you which one you prefer.

Cool, beta FTW!
skeletonss  +   1517d ago
have they ever confirmed how many player per game online>?
BitbyDeath  +   1517d ago
yep, 32 players same as Warhawk.
Perfect number IMO
skeletonss  +   1517d ago
ok thanks! Yeah 32 is perfect. man that would be awesome with 32 mechs battling. damn, this games gonna rule.

I gotta say, I think I am more excited about what this game is bringing to the table than UC3. I just really like the direction they are taking this game.
skeletonss  +   1517d ago
i absolutley agree. to me ( and im sure im gonna get fried over this) i am more excited for this than UC3. while both will be way fun, this one has a HUGE replay value to me. uncharted, much like gears, is getting worn out honestly.

Starhawk looks to be the ultimate multiplayer shooter on PS3.. come 2012!
Warhawk didn't quite receive the attention it deserved. Massively underrated when you think about it. I hope Starhawk receives the fanfare it well and truly deserves.

We've only seen one map, on one planet with ground and hawk combat. We've only seen brief glimpses of campaign mode/story/character development etc. I'd say we haven't even seen 90% of what's in the game. Can't wait to see the bikes and space battles. I've NEVER been this excited about an online shooter before! 2012.......
