86w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Manager Chuck Lacson has announced today that fans can watch the latest Starhawk video trailer on Facebook and get free PS3 DLC to boot.
To quote: You may have noticed how our past trailers have focused on the things that make Starhawk so much fun to play.
Build to Kill was all about the fun of building a base and defending it against attack. Ride, Drive & Fly gave people a taste of what you can drive and pilot in-game.
Our latest trailer is all about the fun of teamwork, it's called "Build Your Team" and it's exclusively on Facebook.
Just click here to give it a view. You may recognize some familiar faces. Very familiar.
For those of you who have tried Starhawk already, you know that skills can get you far, but teamwork can get you further. The game becomes something completely different when you play with your friends and start working together. That's what our latest trailer is about. It also stars an "interesting" cast of characters....
87w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has shared a new Ride, Die, and Fly Starhawk vehicle trailer for PlayStation 3 fans today!
To quote: With just over a month until our May 8th release, the time to fully experience the virtual glory that is Starhawk is rapidly approaching.
We figured what better way to raise the excitement level than to give you a first-hand look at some of the different vehicle options you'll have at your disposal when this innovative third-person shooter hits stores next month.
We've said from the very beginning that Starhawk will have a broad range of intense air, ground, and vehicular combat so I think our new Ride, Die, and Fly trailer will certainly drive that point home.
First up is the Sidewinder JetBike - basically a quick-strike hoverbike that's very fast, perfect for crazy jumps and a lot of fun to drive.
Next, the Razorback, which is similar to a buggy vehicle, a sturdy 4x4 that carries up to three players and comes with a mounted gun on the back, perfect for picking off Outcast scum in a hurry.
The Ox Heavy Tank is one of my favorites. The name basically says it all, right? It's a burly vehicle that's great for bombarding bases. It's...
89w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has announced today that Starhawk is bringing back splitscreen head-to-head and co-op multiplayer action on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!
To quote: As most Warhawk players know, there's nothing quite like "couch gaming!" That is to say, playing video games on the same TV with a friend.
Lots of games have it: Games like Dance Today, Dance Forever, Dance 2 Dance, Dance Dancy Dance, or even Dance Your Self Esteem Away. Dancing is fine and all, but there's nothing that can quite replace the thrill of fragging the buddy sitting next to you - especially if he's being a lame hillbilly (deep, deep love of shotguns).
In Warhawk, you could play with some friends in the same room and have a proper night of gaming: Face to face and frag to frag while sharing nachos, smack talk, and profanity. Good times!
So we're happy to let you know that Starhawk has the exact same feature! OK...not the EXACT same feature. We've spent some time making it better, we think.
Two-Player Split Screen:
Yes, we've got splitscreen play. You can play with another friend on the same PS3 on the same TV. We are very aware that some of you wanted four-player splitscreen like Warhawk.
89w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has shared a video today of the finishing touches being put on Starhawk for PS3 below.
To quote: Recently, the PlayStation.Blog paid a visit to our good friends and partner LightBox Interactive in Austin, Texas during SXSW.
While there, we unlocked the vault and loosened the chains on Mr. Dylan Jobe, LightBox President and CEO. That can be a very dangerous prospect as we never know what we're going to get, it's also fun to hear about all the details on the Starhawk front, including how the public beta affected the game's development. The teams at LightBox and Santa Monica are working incredibly hard to make sure the Starhawk experience is everything the fans deserve.
To give you some insight into that process, Dylan has some thoughts about "crunch time," fans, and game-typy stuff. Starhawk is headed in for a landing and this is a cool look into the mind of a developer at the peak of his game. Check it out!
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,...
