91w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has shared a video today spotlighting the new Starhawk PS3 Beta 1.3 update, which features 32 players, tanks, jetbikes and more!
To quote: Finally, the day has come. We're launching our Beta Update 1.3 today! We're really happy with this new content and we hope you like it, too. Check out this video to see what I'm talking about...
Since our Starhawk Beta launched in November, we've collected soooo much great info. The bugs found would never been nailed down without your efforts and we are confident we'll be giving you one of the best online experiences on PS3 with the final version of the game.
Many balance and feature changes were made as a direct result of player testing. Please accept a sincere "THANK YOU!" from our team.
We have one final big step to make before release. Update 1.3 includes a bunch of new features and fixes including:
32 Player Map: Planet Dust
If you thought 8 vs 8 was fun, things just got EPIC!
This vehicle is all about speed, speed, and more speed. As it's a very hard target to hit, use the Sidewinder for quick hit and run attacks, fast road kills, or team up with others to SWARM the enemy base.
Did we mention it jumps, too?
Ox Heavy Tank
Say hello to our little friend. What the Ox lacks in speed, it makes up for in pure brawn and firepower. You can destroy enemy walls and structures via long range bombardments, assault mechs with explosive shells, and survive barrages while comfortable nestled in its heavily armored shell.
If you've been holding off joining the Beta then the time is now to jump in. The Starhawk Beta ends on March 27th in preparation for our May 8th release. Time is short, so find out what you've been missing - the Starhawk Beta is available for FREE on the PlayStation Network right now.
Go get it while you can!
