HAWKEN creates an intense and enjoyable battle experience that captures the feeling of piloting a heavy war machine while keeping the action fast-paced and strategic. The game brings the quality of a AAA title to the free-to-play sector.  HAWKEN’s back-story will start to be revealed in the upcoming original graphic novel HAWKEN: GENESIS as a part of its transmedia approach. More components of the transmedia will be released in the future revealing more and more of the HAWKEN story; who are these fighters and what are they fighting for. For more information, visit http://www.playhawken.com
