Starhawk Space Battles at PAX, MLG and more

Harvard Bonin's Avatar + Posted by Harvard Bonin on Aug 24, 2011 // Senior Producer, SCEA

It has been a wild and crazy few months since we announced in May. E3, Comic-Con, Gamescom…and now PAX and MLG! It has really been an incredibly exciting time for us and we truly appreciate all of your support. We announced the title back on May 5th at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX, and it’s been a sweet ride ever since!

It’s easy for us to tell everyone how cool the game is, but we think it’s much more believable if it comes from the fans directly. So, I’ve included a video from some of our great fans at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks ago right after they got to play the game. Here’s what they had to say!

Next up is PAX Prime in Seattle this weekend, August 26th – 28th. We’ll be on hand to show off our new space station level, the same environment we showed Gamescom last week….but it damn well deserves an encore. You’ll be able to play with the jet packs and prox mines all in the friendly confines of space so come by the show floor and check us out! I’ll be there running the observer cam and will also be giving out some Starhawk t-shirts and Starhawk bags! Best of all you can get your hands on some great multiplayer action and blow some ++bleep++ up! Here’s a little taste of what the space environment looks like. Come to PAX and try it yourself!

Starhawk PAX t-shit

Starhawk PAX bag

Also this week, Starhawk will be playable at the Major League Gaming Pro Circuit in Raleigh, NC. Swing by the PlayStation Compound at the Raleigh Convention Center (500 South Salisbury Street, Raleigh, NC 26701) on Saturday, August 27th from 10:00am-10:00pm for a chance to win copies of Starhawk when it releases next year and other awesome PlayStation swag! Details can be found on the MLG website. Remember a spectator pass is required.

I know you probably can’t answer this, but will there be a “Zones” like game mode for Starhawk? I’m not exactly sure how that would work with the build system.

I want some Starhawk swag! I’m not going to Pax though. I asked before but got no response (probably won’t get one again) but are there any plans to include female characters in the multiplayer? I’ve been following this game since it’s announce and have seen no news related to this.

Really?… You willingly “signed” into contract with those fools and superfluous morons at MLG (Minors Lagging Greatly?!) Talk about some serious issues. I think I just lost some respect for everyone (and that is “sad” considering how, much I do respect this development team. Yikes!)

The apparel aside (which is all fine and well, I suppose.) I just seriously hope this is some prank or joke involving (in any form) MLG.

As someone who considers Warhawk to easily be the best multiplayer game this gen, I was a little disappointed when I first started hearing details from Starhawk (seemed too different). After seeing that trailer, I have no concerns. When will you be taking my money for this??

@Harvard Bonin How’s the cover art coming along? When do you think we’ll get a tease of the final art?

You’d better make sure make a REALLY BADASS COVER, of course it will feature Emmett Graves looking all sorts of “don’t mess with me”, but I do hope to see somewhere one of those giant structures deploying troops, maybe a boogie, and a Starhawk wrecking havoc in its path!

Bonin, please put in female character models in Starhawk multiplayer!! I know there are actually a lot of girls who played Warhawk and are really looking forward to Starhawk.

What better way to acknowledge your female fan base than to let them choose female characters in Starhawk!!

+ poisonedsodapop on August 24th, 2011 at 12:59 pm said:

I don’t understand why there are no female avatars. The game is obviously still a good ways from launching, how about adding them in? It makes me appreciate a company a lot more if they look out for the female gamers as well as the male. We want customization too. I don’t like pink so no I won’t use pink to identify I’m a female. I mean the game looks amazing and if I got some buds picking it up I’ll probably still pick it up, but it’d be nice to know that a company is looking out for the girls. Uncharted 2 did it, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood did it, Metal Gear Online did it, I believe even Resistance did it.

.. These “Jetpacks” .. I see they kinda compact when landing. Do they make you explode like the Warhawk ones do ?

.. Lastly .. Harvard, What is your favorite cookie ? … If you can only answer one of these .. I’d focus on the Cookie one .. it obviously has the most importance to a Cookie monster
