Hey Starhawkers! Finally, the day has come. We’re launching our Beta Update 1.3 today! We’re really happy with this new content and we hope you like it, too. Check out this video to see what I’m talking about…


Since our Starhawk Beta launched in November, we’ve collected soooo much great info. The bugs found would never been nailed down without your efforts and we are confident we’ll be giving you one of the best online experiences on PS3 with the final version of the game. Many balance and feature changes were made as a direct result of player testing. Please accept a sincere “THANK YOU!” from our team.

We have one final big step to make before release. Update 1.3 includes a bunch of new features and fixes including:

Starhawk: Dust

Starhawk: Dust

32 Player Map: Planet Dust
If you thought 8 vs 8 was fun, things just got EPIC!

Starhawk: Sidewinder Jetbike

Sidewinder Jetbike
This vehicle is all about speed, speed, and more speed. As it’s a very hard target to hit, use the Sidewinder for quick hit and run attacks, fast road kills, or team up with others to SWARM the enemy base.
Did we mention it jumps, too?

Starhawk: Ox tank
Starhawk: Ox tank

Ox Heavy Tank
Say hello to our little friend. What the Ox lacks in speed, it makes up for in pure brawn and firepower. You can destroy enemy walls and structures via long range bombardments, assault mechs with explosive shells, and survive barrages while comfortable nestled in its heavily armored shell.

If you’ve been holding off joining the Beta then the time is now to jump in. The Starhawk Beta ends on March 27th in preparation for our May 8th release. Time is short, so find out what you’ve been missing — the Starhawk Beta is available for FREE on the PlayStation Network right now.

Go get it while you can!

can you guy put back the mini-gun fire sound and fire blast? they look and sound better in the game, more comfortable, or make an an option that you could change that or upgrade in the game? also the knife kill is awesome just the other was better it was fast and the character had the motion of really hit what he was swinging.
and last the the kinetic rife the sound it had was better.That all I have to say for now its just a suggestion not a demand looking forward to game.

P.S if you can change the mini-gun gun rate back it was a lot longer or change the min-gun back to what it was, it was more accurate last the mesh when it moves sounds like its a transformer rusted in a way and the way it changed back to what it was. just a suggestion.

The only problem i saw was the mic problem when people are talking it cuts them out and every now and then the sound cuts out for about 15 sec and the damage while being shot it takes to long to kill some one with a gun up close instead you have to use melee to get the job done
