254w ago - Dylan Jobe has confirmed that the team is excited about integrating trophies into Warhawk for new awards as well as some awards that players may have achieved before the update.
In addition to this, Jobe commented that some but not all of the trophies in Warhawk will be retroactive.
To quote: We contacted Dylan Jobe, producer/director at Incog. Inc., to find out exactly what was going on with the Trophy scheme and got the following statement from him: "We're excited about integrating Trophies into Warhawk for both new awards as well as some awards that players may have already achieved (prior to the update) like rank, combat badges and medals.
As a result of our approach, and to clarify some of the confusion on the Net, some - not all - of the Trophies in Warhawk will be retroactive."
255w ago - Warhawk remains one of the best PlayStation 3 games available; it's an excellent online multiplayer title that continues to deliver on a daily basis. This is mostly due to the tireless Incognito team that keeps offering up new game versions and booster packs, and perhaps not surprisingly, more are on the way.
Furthermore, Dylan Jobe has revealed the Trophies that will be on tap for Warhawk over at the official PlayStation Forums. In the future v1.5 patch, Jobe says there will be a grand total of 56 new Trophies to capture, and they'll be separated into the following categories:
"There are 10 trophies based on the Warhawk's current stats/rank/awards system. Like getting all your Bronze badges, attaining a specific rank, or earning a number of medals.
There are 34 trophies that are entirely *new* rewards based on Warhawks core game and not based on our current stats, ranks or other awards. There are then 4 trophies per booster pack that are, of course, completely new awards."
He goes on to say that the v1.4 patch, which hasn't been released yet, is "very very very close to being released" and they actually went out of their way to create the v1.5 patch "in parallel, but staggered"...

Drop into the heat of the battle and hit the ground running in June 2008 when Warhawk™ expansion packs Operation: Omega Dawn and Operation: Broken Mirror enter the fray as a Booster Combo Pack for you to download from PLAYSTATION¬®Network (PSN)™.
Individually both expansion packs opened up the world of Warhawk - the ultimate PLAYSTATION¬®3 (PS3)™ war experience played exclusively online - with new terrains, vehicles and weapons. Now they're bundled together as one downloadable pack, it's time for every last hesitant soldier to take arms and enter the fray once more as the war between the Eucadian and Chernovan troops continues.
After the success of the original Warhawk (required to play the Booster Combo Pack), the Operation: Omega...
262w ago - Two lucky gamers had the chance of a lifetime after winning our online Warhawk tournament on PLAYSTATION¬®3. The winners Dubsix & RasOlo were given the incredible opportunity to take a flight in a 'real' L-39C jet fighter plane.
This is Warhawk for real! Not only did these lucky chaps get to experience the heart-pumping G-forces of riding in an actual jet plane, but they even had the opportunity (albeit momentarily...) to actually take control of the throttle and 'barrel-roll' this amazing piece of aeronautical engineering.
We're not kidding! Read the full interview with dubsix & RasOlo below:
WARHAWK WINNERS: INTERVIEW
Q1/ HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PLAYING WARHAWK?
RasOlo: Since the minute it was in the PlayStation Store.
dubsix: Downloaded soon after release via the Playstation Store, so around 6-7months
Q2/ WHAT WAS YOUR STRATEGY TO WINNING THE OZ WARHAWK TOURNAMENT?
RasOlo: Relax, have fun and play as I normally do. It was a last chance round so i thought I'd give it a go.
dubsix: Well it was all about points, so I had to be greedy and get as many as possible, they were long matches and had to keep in the action the whole time
