Hawken To Launch As Free-To-Play PC Title?

NowGamer: Adhesive Games job listing suggests mech-shooter will skip consoles. (Adhesive Games, Hawken, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Interesting. I was looking forward to this one, I wonder what it means about it being free-to-play though... not rubbish, I hope.

Free to play doesn't mean rubbish. A lot of games have been following this marketing model lately. All it means is that you will probably be able to buy add-ons for your mech.

Other games doing this include Tribes: Ascend, Team Fortress 2, Alliance Of Valiant Arms, League Of Legends.

All of these games are good, they just make their money from people purchasing cosmetic skins, or minor upgrades for their characters.

I was looking forward to this game but not if its a PC only title. I work on my PC, and like to game on my couch with my consoles.

Couch is a lot of fun, especially at 1080p60 with PC.
Dlacy13g  +   1326d ago
If you have your PC hooked up that way then yes, for sure. My PC sits in my home office where I work from. I wont bring that out to my living room. Down the road who knows...but for now I like to sit on my couch and load up a game on PS3 or the 360 and relax.

Facepalm........not another one.
1. For Gamer's Sake connect your dam PC to your TV, buy a wireless KB/M or controller of your Choice and Game from your couch.

It's not hard unless i suppose your brain dead and have no clue that PC's and TV's have VGA,HDMI,DVI connections. Sorry but it just irks me to death when people think PC's, couches, and TV don't go together. I play this way a lot myself.

Hawken is an indie game from a small Dev team. F2P format on the PC is the best way an Indie Dev can make a game and make money to save away for another project.

F2P allows them to get their game out and continue improving it while receiving funding through micro-transactions.

Hawken is on my to get list.

Another one? Why dont you take a step back and cool your jets. You don't know me or my situation. what works for you isn't what will work for me. You may want to have your pc in your living room with your tv....congrats, more power to you. I don't. I choose to keep my PC completely separate because 1) I don't have an effective place to set it up without it sticking out like a sore thumb and 2) I work from that PC and would be too tempted to check on work stuff. Need that separation.

So no, no PC in the living room for me.

Tribes is doing the F2P deal and its pretty good so far. Can't wait for this one, and Mechwarrior online, 2012 is the year of the PC it seeming. Really going to suck for console boys.

Nah, every year is the year of PC...
