Starhawk: Watch the E3 2011 Trailer Here

Harvard Bonin's Avatar Posted by Senior Producer, SCEA

E3 is upon us and Dylan, myself and a number of the LightBox team members are all in Los Angeles and excited to be showing off Starhawk in the PlayStation booth. Up until now we’ve given you a small taste of gameplay, touched on our Build & Battle system, and shown you a snippet of multiplayer action from a tourney we did at LightBox—now it’s time to get fancy. Our E3 2011 trailer formally introduces you to the exciting new world that is the Starhawk universe, including our main character, hired gunslinger Emmett Graves.

As you can see, Emmett must navigate through a brutal playground of large-scale combat where the tide of battle turns all the time, whether you’re on land or in the air (YES there will be dogfighting in SPACE!). And with Build & Battle, you have the ability to alter this battlefield how you see fit by calling down base structures, weaponry, or reinforcements with just the touch of a button.

Throughout the solo campaign you’ll discover a lot more about Emmett Graves and his Rift Energy affliction…along with why he has an overwhelming distaste for The Outcast, the band of deadly monstrosities that he must destroy. And what is this “Rift Energy,” anyway? There are plenty of mysteries in the Starhawk universe that are waiting to be discovered. Not to mention lots of stuff to blow up!

I’m also thrilled to have our first playable multiplayer content here at E3. We showed you a brief video last week of how much fun the multiplayer mode can be to whet your appetites so I hope you have fun with it at the show. While our new single-player campaign is a huge part of Starhawk, we’re also staying true to our Warhawk roots with a kick-ass multiplayer experience.

We hope you like the trailer and thanks, as always, for reading! Keep your eyes on the PlayStation Blog,, and @dylanjobe on Twitter. Send us questions and comments any way you can. We love reading them. And thanks for your continued support!

This is on my top 5 games that I want. I played Warhawk and loved it but I got it on late 2009 and still don’t have the add ons and I feel that I have missed so much from the game I’m definatlly not letting this one pass by day one purchase for me when it comes out untill then I have alot to catch up on Warkhawk.

Hey Dylan, so when the Hawks are in mech mode, they can’t hover? So what if you transform while flying in the air? Do you just fall down to the ground?

Excellent trailer! Need to see hover bikes in action aswell as space battles. You guys understand MP balanced I love it.

Yup definitely getting this one when it’s available for pre-order. Wonder if they’ll have some type of limited edition for it.

this looks…

Warhawk remains the worst supported game… 4 months to fix the tank glitch. 2+ weeks just to get stats to track. Refusing to fix the second rate slop coding and instead attempting to ‘police’ an online game… yeh. Loved how the dev’s let their friends from beta cheat (stats pad) but deleted anyone else who did it, lmao.

Dylan go away, and take your second rate cant cut it crap warhawk with new textures with you. Nothing really new here, looks like warhawk meets fable… this is just an overpriced 4th expansion.

buying this game when it comes out!!!!!!
