Was it really the year 1995 when the original Warhawk for Sony PlayStation hit the shelves? Back then we had no idea that the game would be redesigned from the ground up as an exclusive multiplayer only game for the PlayStation 3 in 2007. Even now, how many other games let you pit Soldiers, Tanks, Jeeps and Aircraft against each other in a giant 32 player third person deathmatch fest? To this day there are still many hardcore fans still playing Warhawk on their PS3’s every night of the week – but it can’t have gone unnoticed to them that the game is looking a little dated. Thankfully the game’s sequel should be here soon.
Starhawk for PS3 sets to build upon the addictive nature of Warhawk but brings along an interesting sounding new mechanic which could add even more strategy into the mix. Dubbed the “Build and Battle” system, you can gain the tactical advantage by calling upon an arsenal of weapons, vehicles, and fortifications, violently delivered from an orbiting drop ship to help turn the tide of battle.
So far all we know is that the Starhawk release date is May 8, 2012, more news as we get it.
