Hawken Reborn F.A.Q.
WHAT IS HAWKEN REBORN?
Hawken Reborn is the newest installment in the mech combat franchise. Players can expect the signature fast-paced FPS action combined with PvE gameplay experience brimming with Mechs (aka Axes), evolving features, deadly enemies, and all-new storylines for all pilots to explore.
HOW IS HAWKEN REBORN (2.0) DIFFERENT FROM THE ORIGINAL HAWKEN (1.0)?
Hawken Reborn is a PvE first person shooter, whilst the original Hawken was an exclusively PvP experience. Pilots may not be going head-to-head in Hawken Reborn against each other, but they can expect just as much combat and high-octane mech fighting as you explore the new world of Illal.
Illal is a dark yet vibrant world, with inhabitants from all walks of life eking out an existence on its battle-riddled landscapes. Through a PVE package, we’ve made the exploration of these amazing narratives a bigger part of the game, and believe this will aid in making the game more accessible to all types of gamers who can potentially enjoy this world at their own pace. Playing Hawken Reborn means that you won’t be reliant on other players to progress through this experience, a limitation an exclusively PVP game can sometimes bring.
WILL PVP BE COMING TO HAWKEN REBORN?
At Early Access, our primary focus will be the foundation of a solid and fun PVE player experience. We have no additional announcements to make regarding PVP at this time.
IS THIS GAME SINGLE PLAYER OR MULTIPLAYER?
The Early Access version of the game is single-player for now, but co-op multiplayer is a planned feature.
HOW LONG IS EARLY ACCESS PLANNED?
We’re estimating 12 – 18 months in Early Access to give our team enough time to gather player feedback and iron out any dents that players may have. Our roadmap can be found at www.HawkenReborn.com and as a reminder, it is meant as a vision of our “North Star” for production vs a timeline for things to come.
