Video: Sony Showcases New Starhawk Build to Kill PS3 Trailer

126w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has showcased a new Starhawk Build to Kill PS3 trailer today, complete with details below as follows:

As most of you know, Starhawk is a frenetic 3rd person shooter with a ton of toys to play with. Its got a strong solo story campaign, deep 32 player head-to-head and even co-op! You can run, fly and drive almost anywhere you want.

Its vehicular combat at its finest. The most popular question we get from players unfamiliar with the game is "What is this thing called Build & Battle?"

Simply put its a dead simple way to build up a base all around you while staying in the middle of a fierce battle. Its not block building and its not slow. We're not making Sim City. To show you, here is a nifty trailer!

In Starhawk we have one simple slogan..."Kill to build, build to kill."

It's not a gimmick. Its a really easy way for players to change the battlefield on the fly, in an instant straightforward manner. Its about dropping gigantic crates from orbit, having them smash down in front of you and having a big laser or bunker build right in front of you. You can even drop them on enemies ("Dorothy'd").





So other than dropping massive structures...
