Review: Starhawk

When Starhawk was announced as the follow-up to 2007's PlayStation 3 exclusive Warhawk, cynical gamers wondered if it would be nothing more than Warhawk in space. Going into this completely cold, I was expecting another ...

Get Warhawk in your Starhawk (if you are European) photo
Get Warhawk in your Starhawk (if you are European)
by Fraser Brown

Europe gets a lot of things, like political extremism and unnecessary languages, like French. What we don't get a lot of, however, is love from the industry. We usually have to wait for the Japanese and Americans to get their games before we do, so it only makes sense that when we get something you don't, we make a big deal out of it. We've been doing it a lot recently, what with all the JRPGs that we've been getting long before our American brethren get a taste. Indeed, here in Edinburgh we have a new holiday centered around celebrating The Last Story and our ability to play it before you. 

Now we get to do it again, albeit on a smaller scale. Some might call us fickle, but those are the people who aren't getting a free copy of Warhawk when they purchase any version of Starhawk. This is the PSOne version I'm talking about, not the more recent remake. The classic will be added to your download list, and from there you can relive the origins of the franchise. But don't fret, my cousins across the Atlantic, if you get the special edition version of the game, you can join us. It's a GameStop exclusive. Ewww.

All Starhawk DLC maps to be released for free photo
All Starhawk DLC maps to be released for free
by Conrad Zimmerman

Starhawk hit store shelves in North America today and with the release comes great news for its long-term prospects, as it has been announced that all future map content will be made available free of charge. 

In a post on the official Starhawk blog, Lightbox acknowledged a division in the Warhawk community which arose whenever new maps were released, with some players electing not to purchase packs causing a fragmentation. Seeking to prevent this with Starhawk, they're just going to make those map packs free now.

Lightbox did state some paid DLC is planned for the future, so there will still be opportunities for you to give them more of your money down the road. In the meantime, go shoot each other, safe in the knowledge that everybody will have the same playing field.

All Starhawk map packs will be free! [Starhawk blog]

Preview: Starhawk

Sony Santa Monica and Incognito released Warhawk, a fast vehicle/dogfight multiplayer third-person shooter for the PS3, back in 2007. Since then there has been a goal to build on this popular game and do something special with the multiplayer genre. This sequel, Starhawk, is their attempt at this.

The idea behind Starhawk was to keep the same style of gameplay as Warhawk, but stick it in a new universe, and then add in a much deeper multiplayer functionality. The team also wanted to add in a new single player component to the mix. Both would be using the team's unique new gameplay system that centers around the freedom of instant creation of items, weapons, allies and buildings and much more, all in a big, free arena. It sounds different, but know that it works wonderfully. Also know that Sony has a huge PS3 release waiting in the wings, and that it could forever change how you look at multiplayer shooters.
