HAWKEN Closed Beta Dates Announced

For Immediate Release

Seattle, Washington (October 12, 2012) –Meteor Entertainment announces the closed beta dates for HAWKEN.  HAWKEN is the free-to-play, first-person mech shooter developed by Adhesive Games. The game enters its initial closed beta on October 26th until the 29th.

“The team has worked tirelessly to launch closed beta. Thanks to the awesome community, we learned a great deal from the Alpha 2 feedback,” said Khang Le, Creative Director and Co-founder of Adhesive Games. Le goes on to exclaim, ”We’re super excited about opening the gate and having a larger fan base playing HAWKEN for the very first time! I can’t wait to see how the general audience receives the game and all the crazy tactics they come up to dominate on the HAWKEN battlefield.”

“HAWKEN’s Alpha 2 testing was great. We broke a lot of things and that’s good. The more that we find wrong now; the smoother open beta will go,” explains CEO of Meteor Entertainment Mark Long. “We scaled up an order of magnitude in daily players and the server ping was so good we had players on the West Coast of the United States joining the United Kingdom servers. We cannot wait to see what happens as more players join in on closed beta.”

HAWKEN is one of the most anticipated games of 2012. It is helping usher in the next generation of AAA quality, free to play games. HAWKEN has won more than 20 awards since June of 2012 and is the recipient of much media praise. Greater than all of this has been the positive feedback from the fans that were lucky enough to be a part of the Alpha 2 testing. Don’t miss your chance to get in on the action early too!
