Fortnite reminds me of Warhawk with Starhawk mechanics, now People know why I liked that game so much.

ChronoJoe971d ago

Why? Starhawk and Warhawks selling point is probably the flight gameplay, Fortnite doesn't have any of that... it's not really similar at all...

jocomat9971d ago

Wow same bro. Trying to plat fortnite to go with my warhawk plat. But I missed my chance to plat starhawk sadly.

Avalanche971d ago

very similiar. the drop in from the sky aspect, the hit detection, the way the characters move, everything was ripped from Star/Warhawk.

I would be surprised at all if Fortnite introduces dog fighting and it controls exactly like Starhawk

SmielmaN971d ago

Agreed. Was so fun back then....

The multiplayer with base building was so good and so overlooked in its time.

I think it took a lot of flak in the reviews because of its lackluster single player campaign. That's a shame. The campaign was pretty much one big tutorial to get you ready for the online mp. Yea, it wasn't great, but the mp was.

I hope they make another Warhawk or Starhawk in the future!

I remember it just not feeling very good to play, that’s why it failed. You have to nail the core mechanics in a multiplayer game.

Can’t believe they are still up! I’ve been waiting for a PS4 remaster.

I only played the beta, it was fun. But isn't it weird this gets decommissioned before Warhawk?

ZaWarudo972d ago

Hardcore Warhawk fans absolutely hated Starhawk. I think it was the building mechanics that they didn't like.

I thought it was cool.

THC CELL971d ago

Warhawk is on playstaton now and is quiet active

TeamIcoFan971d ago

I think Warhawk also supports dedicated servers so even if the official servers go offline, people can still play it.

I uninstalled Starhawk around 3 years ago, mainly because almost nobody was playing it at that time. It was one of the best multiplayer games on the market, so it's kind of sad that it wasn't more popular than it ended up being.

BloodyBorne971d ago

Was really into this game for a while. The multiplayer was fun as hell. Would probably be all over it again if it got a rerelease on ps4. Hardly got any marketing when it first released.

When did LightBox Interactive close down? They laid of a few people after sony ended the contract in 2012 but they began work on a IOS game.
