The eagerly awaited sequel to Warhawk hit the shelves back in May of this year. Before I go on and give you the low down on Starhawk, let’s quickly recap on this series’ first outing on the PS3 as Warhawk.
Warhawk is as a fast-paced, arcade style online multiplayer title which wasn’t packed with a single player campaign. The single player campaign was cancelled during development, as there were concerns that it was inferior to the game’s multiplayer component.
Warhawk, similar to the Battlefield shooters, is based on a fictional war (between Eucadian and Chernovan armies). Basic principles of the game applied, you can either run around maniacally, shooting everything and everyone in your path or you could make use of the in-game vehicles at your disposal to wreak havoc on the maps.
The game was an instant success, and as a result of this, we now have the sequel – Starhawk.
Future map packs will be free for Star hawk! In a generation of gaming where you feel nickle and dimed to death just to get a piece of dlc that you felt should have been on the disc in the first place, this is how you launch a game and gain a fan base folks. The team had this to say:
