Starhawk: Creating a New Universe and Comic-Con Fun

Harvard Bonin's Avatar + Posted by Harvard Bonin on Jul 15, 2011 // Senior Producer, SCEA

I wanted to take a quick time out from having fun with Starhawk and invite you to check our new behind-the-scenes video below! In it, you’ll gain insight into how we created the Starhawk universe and story, as well as background thoughts on our protagonist Emmett from the team at LightBox. As a special treat, you’ll see snippets of our animated cut scenes as well!

Want more? Check out StarhawkTheGame.com for an extended cut and check out the PlayStation.Blog next week as we release a full cut scene in honor of Comic-Con.

Speaking of….

San Diego Comic-Con is next week and Starhawk will be there for all to play! It’ll be the first time gamers will get to try our single-player mode so come on down and give it a play if you are around. On top of that we’re having a panel discussion at 10:00 a.m., Sunday, July 24th so please come and join us! We’d love to meet you all in person.
Here’s a marketing blurb about the details. Come on by!

Timing: Sunday, July 24 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. PST
Location: Room 25AB at the San Diego Convention Center

Panel Description

The Evolution from Warhawk to Starhawk — The New Universe that is Starhawk and the Characters Behind the Conflict:

Meet the creative minds behind Starhawk, the spiritual successor to Warhawk, as they introduce you to an exciting new world set in the lawless frontier of space. The team at LightBox Interactive and Sony Computer Entertainment’s Santa Monica Studio are set to bring you an action packed story with compelling characters beginning with hired gunslinger Emmett Graves. Learn about how Emmett must navigate through Starhawk’s brutal playground of large scale combat where the tide of battle turns all the time, whether you’re on land, in the air, or in the far reaches of space. Throughout this discussion you’ll discover details about Emmett’s back story, his affliction to Rift Energy, and his overwhelming distaste for The Outcast, the war band of deadly monstrosities that he must fight to destroy in this PlayStation 3 exclusive. Join Starhawk’s Creative Director—Lars DeVore (LightBox Interactive), Senior Producer—Harvard Bonin (SCEA Santa Monica Studio), Studio Director—John Hight (SCEA Santa Monica Studio), and Starhawk’s Writer—Koen Wooten, as they provide insight into the creative process behind Starhawk’s space western universe with never-before-seen concept art, exclusive story details, and in depth commentary, straight from the men behind this innovative new shooter experience.

Dear Starhawk Dev. Crew

Remember how you could play in Normal flight, which is a million times easier to master and be successful in than normal flight, when you were a general? I really thought it wasn’t fair how the more casual and easy flight-mode got pitted against the people who fly with six fingers and fly pro-flight. It’s really more of a challenge to fly pro-flight.

My question is, in Starhawk, will Normal flight still be easy and will people who are veterans still be able to fly normal flight and play against people who fly pro-flight?

Please write back.

I was never good at playing Warhawk but Star Hawk is offering some cool stuff that’ll make me have a fighting chance.
I’m good at other games but Warhawk was definitely not a pick up and play game.
It’s still was fun whether I won or not.
The direction for Starhawk is pretty dope.
Interesting how their trying to incorporate RTS Elements into Star Hawk.
Sweet game.
Hopefully a MP Beta will be released so I can try it out.
