All Starhawk Beta Players Will Receive Free Gifts

Dylan Jobe's Avatar + Posted by Dylan Jobe on May 01, 2012 // President, LightBox Interactive

After years of hard work on Starhawk I am wicked excited to finally announce that Starhawk has gone gold and will be on store shelves in North America on May 8th! GOOOOOAAAAALLLL….D!



Starhawk is not your normal off-the-shelf shooter. We’ve certainly taken some chances with this game, but it’s gonna be worth it: The Build & Battle system alters the traditional shooter recipe in such a way that when you play other shooters you may find yourself frustrated that you can’t build bunkers, walls, outposts, and all the other stuff that Starhawk lets you build. So if you’re a shooter fan looking for a change of pace, definitely pick up Starhawk!

Nothing ever comes easy though, and integrating Build & Battle certainly took a bunch of iteration and refinement both internally during production here at LightBox Interactive and also during our private and public betas. You guys were really great beta testers, so as a “thank you” for your participation we’re giving you two exclusive items.

The first is The Hand of the Founder. It’s an exclusive character accessory for anyone who played in the BETA. It’s a gold, glowing, atom-looking thing that is bonded to your right hand. It’s intended to be a way to show off to your friends and everyone else online that you were one of Starhawk’s founders. That you had a hand in its creation!

The second item is the Warhawk Paint Set. It includes two exclusive vehicle paint schemes that you can use to customize any of your vehicles in Starhawk. The Warhawk Paint Set is available to any Starhawk Beta tester who was *ALSO* a Warhawk player. You get the olive-drab military look of Warhawk’s Eucadians as well as the stealthy, black and gunmetal look of the Chernovans.

Both The Hand of the Founder and the Warhawk Paint Set are Starhawk Beta exclusives and are intended to be very special “thank you” items that will never be re-released or sold. And we’ll be making a follow-up post on the specifics of how we’ll be distributing these Beta gifts.

Like you heard me say in the video, the release of Starhawk on May 8th is just the beginning! We’re going to be continuing to release updates and refinements to Starhawk to make sure the community is getting the best Starhawk experience we can provide.

Hand of the founder’s color, for the Outcast, should be Blue like the rift……IMO.
Awesome Gifts by the way, Thanks Dylan.

How do these perks work? Will the game recognize our usernames as those belonging to the list of people who either Played Starhawk’s Beta or Warhawk?

Actually had a hard time getting in to the Beta and also decided to wait until the finished game however I have my preorder all paid for and am definitely excited to get the Warhawk paint set. The extra gifts are very much appreciated. Thanks.

Where are the freebies for Warhawk and the Beta??


72

+ jayman19672 on May 8th, 2012 at 4:16 pm said:

I wonder how you get the reward? I was a beta tester and I just installed the Starhawk Limited Edition and no rewards, but after the beta was done I deleted the beta off my PS3 to save disk space.

I guess people didn’t read what Dylan wrote:

“Both The Hand of the Founder and the Warhawk Paint Set are Starhawk Beta exclusives and are intended to be very special “thank you” items that will never be re-released or sold. And we’ll be making a follow-up post on the specifics of how we’ll be distributing these Beta gifts.”

So, Dylan or someone on his team will be doing a follow up later on. It was never meant to be a Day One. It would have been nice, but I’m guessing that they made this decision to reward the beta testers and Warhawk players after the fact they when they went “gold” with the game. So I will wait because I should be getting both rewards.

For now I’m happy about their announcement about the free DLC map packs they will release in the future. Of course I’m also stoked to be playing the game after all this time.

Problem with gifts I did not get any of it …. How do you claim gifts ? I did play the private and the PlayStation Plus Beta.


77

+ roboshawn on May 9th, 2012 at 4:47 pm said:

Yeah, I was in Beta and played Warhawk. I didn’t see any signs of these items yesterday either. Sitting tight to hear news on how to activate/claim them.

I’d wager that they can just send us an email or Playstation ‘gift’ through the PSN or just activated in our game when the game registers that we login to the Starhawk servers and evaluates that we played Beta and/or Warhawk?

+ Arron_Rift on May 13th, 2012 at 8:06 pm said:

Hey,

I Really enjoyed the Beta, but I’m planning on waiting about 2 months until I’m less busy and the prices come down to buy it.

Does anyone know if I need to own a copy of the game before tomorrow in order to get the beta reward code, or will I get one that I can save until I buy my own copy?

Sony, please send it to ALL of us Beta testers!!!!

And thanks Lightbox, for the awesome Beta and what looks like an AMAZING game!

Oh, and if anyone else knows the answer to my above question, I’d really appreciate it if they could answer also.

Thanks :)

So, when will we actually get our free gifts. I assumed we might get them on the release, but I still haven’t gotten mine yet.

I participated in the Public Beta for Starhawk. I still did not get my Hand of the Founder.

I’m surprised that someone at Lightbox Interactive hasn’t posted anything yet about this. I just saw this on my facebook page. There is a post from them on the Starhawk official facebook page that explains that not all beta testers got their gifts. However they have a solution to this. You can go to their site:
http://www.lightboxinteractive.com/Starhawk-BETA-Gifts There you can submit your info so they can crosscheck their Starhawk Beta player list and their Warhawk player list to verity that you participated.

Again the site is:
http://www.lightboxinteractive.com/Starhawk-BETA-Gifts

Maybe someone moderating this PlayStation blog should ask a Lightbox team member to place this info officially on this site.
