Hawken Producer Details Plans for Next Update

Posted Tue, Jul 23, 2013 by Martuk

Another month brings another update from Hawken producer Jason Hughes. The mech-based title continues its push towards more content this month and Hughes laid out a list of what’s in store. Just one of the new things in being implemented is new Advanced Battalion, which is an advanced group of players that will have early access to new game content to help put it through its paces and discover any kinks before it goes live.

On the content front, players can expect to see a new party and matchmaking system, improvements to the new user experience, clan improvements and management from the website, co-op bot training, XP Overflow, a pilot progression system, elite skins, and much more. No release date has been set as of yet for the next big update, but Hughes expects it to deploy within the next few weeks if all goes as planned.

You can read the full Producer’s Letter for all the details. Be sure to check out Hawken’s weekly video report, The Cockpit, on Twitch for regular updates.
