Starhawk for PS3

Last week we released our massive Starhawk 1.04 multiplayer update, a ton of badass new free DLC, our multiplayer digital download edition, and our epic single-player campaign as a free download to PlayStation Plus subscribers including all of the multiplayer DLC free. If you haven’t signed up for PlayStation Plus yet, what are you waiting for? It’s a crazy good deal — not to mention it now includes a slice of Starhawk.

On top of all that, in a partnership with the MLG, we launched a major $20,000 Starhawk multiplayer tournament. The competition has gotten off to a fierce start as all Starhawk players are eligible, including you! To sign up, head over to the MLG GameBattles Starhawk website and mount up to compete for your share of the cash! After you sign up, all you have to do is get online in the ranked match frenzy and you’ll be entered. Easy!

Separate from the leaderboard tourney, MLG is also running four skill challenge weekends to ensure you always have a second chance at scoring some cash. And that’s where this gets interesting — these quick weekend challenges give everyone a shot at nabbing a $500 prize! Starting right now, the first of these quick challenges begins with a skill competition to see who can score the most knife kills. Score the most knife kills at the end of this weekend to top the leaderboard and you’ll win $500, even if you aren’t in the top ranks of the main leaderboard. Get online right now — the first quick challenge has been activated!

To help you become a knife master, we’re continuing our Starhawk multiplayer strategy video series with an overview of the top on-foot weapons. Also be sure to watch our strategy videos focusing on Rift Energy and effective use of Zones.

We’ve produced a whole slew of new multiplayer tutorial videos covering every aspect of Starhawk. We’ll be continuing to release them weekly, so check ‘em out, then hop online and put your new skills to work!

Between the new updates, tournaments, community game nights and new video series, there’s never been a more exciting time to be playing Starhawk. So grab your Kinetic Rifle, dust off your hat, and we’ll see you in the New Frontier!

Can I get a real Grizzly Rig? It would be great running past morning traffic and setting off an EMP for those that drive in the shoulders.

By the way, the vehicle is awesome! Everyone should at least get the multiplayer version of Starhawk.

Are you guys aware that the save data is different than the disc version of starhawk. I had the disc version but one I heard it was digital and I got single player free, I sold my disc version for funds for the digital versions as I prefer digital and when I bought the 20 dollar muliplayer it separates the games and the save data to single player is separated from the disc version which messed me up. I can’t replay my already beaten chapters cause it has me starting from scratch. I platinum Starhawk and had gold on all chapters and enjoyed going back replaying different chapters so can you guys fix this issue of it separating the save data from our disc versions. Its annoying and shouldn’t do that.

Oh just to let u know i just played a match… thanks for ruining the game. U took off the bruiser ability and now vehicles are immortals as if vehicles werent overpower enough. thanks for breaking the balance. now ppl who play afoot can do nothing AT ALL if u are confronting vehicle spammers. ruined capture the flag first and now took off the bruiser class plus 5 bucks to get DLC for a robot…. wow…. nice one… consider me disappointed in u guys.
Nice way to FU!@# in the A!@#$ ur day one players

It’s pretty interesting the games that get big Gamebattles or MLG backing. I would pick up Starhawk again if this is going to be a continuing thing. I’d also like to see more MLB the The Show support, and if there is another SOCOM game, that would be a returning title with great team vs team games to team up for… What about Battlefield 3 support too?

*maybe support isn’t the right word. I mean support for money contests and rewards for good play or team victories. I don’t see that advertised a lot but every now and then I play a game and wish their was an awesome tie in the to a MLG/Gamebattles site, but then there is nothing going on….more stuff like this connection with Starhawk would be cool.

@9 Where do you want Light Box to get their money from dude? They give away the MP maps and added modes for free. You’re acting like a spoiled brat because they charge for some dlc. You can even use the dlc for free if someone else that paid for it place it in the field. And the bruiser was for scrubs, you could go base ravaging like a freak with it. Behicles are manageable with rocket launchers, you’re just crying for the sake of it.

@12
I want them to make their money on their DLC but in Decent DLC. Not five buck for literally ONE just ONE MORE vehicle?! Even a dumba$$ like u should understand that is overpriced.
Also try to get ur facts right next time u come here. PPL who paid for the Grizzly are the only ones who get to use it since it only spawn the grizzly and not a bunker for the team to use it.
The bruiser class was overused for base ravaging but it was a defense/offense class for ppl who likes to play afoot fight against vehicles noobs. Now try to fight a grizzle afoot and win then talk to me kid. You are are just commenting for the sake of it when u have not even played since the update obviously since u didnt knew how grizzly dlc work.

Oh and Vehicles not behicles.
