84w ago - LightBox Interactive President Dylan Jobe has announced today that all Starhawk Beta Players will receive free gifts, with details below!
To quote: After years of hard work on Starhawk I am wicked excited to finally announce that Starhawk has gone gold and will be on store shelves in North America on May 8th! GOOOOOAAAAALLLL!
Starhawk is not your normal off-the-shelf shooter. We've certainly taken some chances with this game, but it's gonna be worth it: The Build & Battle system alters the traditional shooter recipe in such a way that when you play other shooters you may find yourself frustrated that you can't build bunkers, walls, outposts, and all the other stuff that Starhawk lets you build.
So if you're a shooter fan looking for a change of pace, definitely pick up Starhawk!
Nothing ever comes easy though, and integrating Build & Battle certainly took a bunch of iteration and refinement both internally during production here at LightBox Interactive and also during our private and public betas. You guys were really great beta testers, so as a "thank you" for your participation we're giving you two exclusive items.
85w ago - LightBox Interactive President Dylan Jobe has officially unveiled the Starhawk PS3 story trailer video today with details below!
To quote: From the depths I emerge to share with you and all other "nodes" on the internets a wonderful tale.
A tale of a game with hot multiplayer action yet, unbeknownst to most players, a fun-as-hell solo campaign as well. So peel back your eyelids and let the video below impregnate your brain! (Yes, your brain can get pregnant!)
The team has been working all hours at Santa Monica Studio and here at LightBox Interactive to finish up Starhawk and we wanted to take a bit of time to share our latest Singleplayer trailer.
Most people out there really only know Starhawk for its online multiplayer, which totally kicks ass and was certainly our team's focus. But the fact is that Starhawk has a very fun and unique solo campaign too... and NO, it's not just an MP tutorial with bots!
Starhawk's Build & Battle mechanics are fully supported by the Universe we've created. The war between the Rifters and the Outcast. The conflict between Emmett and Logan.
Even humanity's rush for "blue-gold" that spans the Frontier....
112w ago - LightBox Interactive President Dylan Jobe has unveiled some sweet Starhawk PS3 Beta news today for fans alongside a new video, as follows:
Boy, do I have some exciting news to share with all of our Warhawk fans today, but first, let me serve you all some delicious hors d'oeuvres de Internets!
We were so happy with the response to Starhawk at PAX that the SCEA marketing machine leveled-up, cast Videozzaga and summoned a quick video of our Santa Monica Sr. Producer Harvard Bonin talking with people at the show in Seattle after they got hands-on with Starhawk!
Not only was it great to see people loving Starhawk at PAX, the team and I love seeing coverage and buzz about the game start to pick up speed.
And with our announcement last week that early access keys for the Starhawk Public Beta will be included in Uncharted 3, well... things are now moving forward at ludicrous speed! It was great to read all the comments, tweets and Facebook posts from players who are just now getting introduced to Starhawk's gameplay and universe and the LightBox Interactive team and I can't wait to see all of you online in early 2012!
133w ago - Today LightBox Interactive President Dylan Jobe has answered some Starhawk PS3 questions alongside some fresh video footage below.
To quote: We all know a good reveal is just the ﬁrst step in making our fans happy and we're looking forward to showing you guys even more tasty Starhawk content and get you more plugged into the Starhawk universe!
So the other day I asked all of you on Twitter to send me Starhawk questions that you wanted to get answered, and while we're still planning on doing a full FAQ post here on the PlayStation.Blog, I wanted to take a few of the questions that were popular and answer them straight away. Here goes:
Does Starhawk have two flight modes?
YES. Initially we wanted to have Starhawk use only a single ﬂight mode so that all players were uniﬁed. We worked a lot on this but ultimately decided that the needs of a newbie player and the needs of a hardcore Warhawk fan were just too far apart and we weren't willing to make the compromises needed to jam everyone into a single ﬂight mode.
So... Starhawk has two ﬂight modes and both are great! The default mode is very simple and great for new to mid-level players (and yes, reverse aiming issues have been ﬁxed). It's a re-vamped version of our "arcade mode" (but...
