Press Information

For Immediate Release

o We’re looking for original and eye catching designs so be creative!

o Submit your entries via the official Warhawk forums or email them to us before 23nd June to qualify

If you’re a creative gamer with a taste for frenetic and action-packed online military battles then Warhawk™ on PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) is for you. Playable online exclusively via PLAYSTATION®Network and available either by download from PLAYSTATION®Network or on Blu-ray disc, Warhawk pits teams of gamers from across the globe against one another in a melee of armed combat with squad action coordinated by live voice communication. Whether you wage war on foot, at the controls of a tank, a military 4x4 or from the cockpit of the fearsome Warhawk, there’ll be non-stop action ahead. You’ll join an elite online community of teams and clans: all with full stat-tracking support, rankings, leaderboards, badges and awards to recognise the most driven warriors on the battlefield. One piece of advice, in Warhawk, nowhere is safe, you’re always somebody’s prey.

Having been in the thick of the action for the past few months, we’re now looking for new insignias and paint schemes for the Warhawk and Nemesis aircrafts and we’re running an online competition to find the budding artists who can produce them! If you can conceive imaginative, eye catching and unique paint and insignia schemes, we want you to send us your design. The winning designs will then be incorporated into the forthcoming patch update. This will allow all Warhawk players from across Europe to use them in-game to customise their troops and aircraft.

Entries will be judged by a panel from Incognito studios that will include Dylan Jobe, Warhawk’s Game Director. In order to qualify you must submit your design before by 22nd June 23h59 GMT– so get busy designing.

To take part in this cool competition, all you have to do is design a new insignia or paint scheme (or both!)– guidance on how to do this, plus technical restrictions and eligibility requirements, can be found on eu.playstation.com or on the official Warhawk forums at http://community.eu.playstation.com/playstationeu/board?board.id=608

If you have yet to experience Warhawk’s fast-paced and frenetic multiplayer military battles, then you’re missing out on the most adrenaline-fuelled online experience ever– it’s exclusive to PS3 and available either by download from PLAYSTATION®Network or on Blu-ray disc. And with expansion packs such as Operation: Omega Dawn and Operation: Broken Mirror available now as downloads from PLAYSTATION®Store, there is a lot waiting for you on the battlefield. Decide today if you’re the hunter or the prey.
