First Warhawk: Omega Dawn screens, pricing announced

3:44 PM on 11.30.2007 // Nick Chester

Sony has released the first screens and artwork from the forthcoming Warhawk expansion pack, Omega Dawn, and I've made the decision that I want it. Damn it.

For $7.99, you get the new "Omega Factory" map which can be played in six different map configurations. Additionally, the screens show off the dropship we previously revealed, the KT-424. According to the official Sony fact sheet, the massive KT-424 acts "as a multiplayer Boss character," and "creates memorable moments where seven players are operating in smooth coordination." Or you know, just seven people bitching at the each other. Take your pick. 

The full fact sheet for the booster pack (which will be available in December) can be found after the jump.

Operation: Omega Dawn
A Warhawk™ Booster Pack

Publisher:    Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. (SCEA)
Developer:         Incognito Entertainment
Platform:     Exclusively on PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) via PLAYSTATION®Network
Genre:             Multiplayer Combat
Rating:            “T” for Teen

The heart-pounding, gut-wrenching thrill of Warhawk will get even more intense this December with Operation: Omega Dawn, Warhawk’s first downloadable Booster pack.  Developed by Incognito Entertainment, the highly-anticipated add-on pack will redefine team tactics in Warhawk and introduce a host of new strategic elements.  Featuring an entirely new battlefield, "Omega Factory," in which Eucadians and Chenovans are fighting for control, Operation: Omega Dawn includes six map configurations where warhawks can take flight through the night skies of an isolated factory world.  Adding to the intensity, players can board the KT-424 Combat Dropship – a supreme vehicle that can transport up to seven troopers and a ground vehicle at one time, allowing for massive invasions on enemy territories.  The Dropship act as a multiplayer Boss character, similar to those found in single player games, and creates memorable moments where seven players are operating in smooth coordination.  Available exclusively for download at the PLAYSTATION®Store, Operation: Omega Dawn adds new layer of strategy and depth to the fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping gameplay experienced in Warhawk.

Invade Enemy Territories with the PMC-Dropship – Utilizing the tactical and physical capabilities of the new KT-424 Combat Dropship, players can swarm into enemy territories with a vengeance and dominate alongside their clan.  Both an aircraft and a ground vehicle, the Dropship is the ultimate destructive weapon for massive assaults.  Lined with powerful turrets for transported soldiers, the Dropship can carry up to seven troops and ground vehicles at one time.

Dominate Opponents on a Brand New Battleground – Enter at your own risk into the new, night-time battlefield for Warhawk, Omega Factory.  The largest map to date, the new environment leads troopers into an eerily dark factory world that includes six battlefield layouts and supports all of your favorite game modes from the original game.  
More Vertical Gameplay – Players’ fighting skills will be put to the ultimate test as the new map features more vertical gameplay, allowing for intense aerial combat via warhawks and the Dropship.  The new map features environments that can only be accessed by airborne deployment such as raised platforms and rooftops of enormous war factories.
Bonus Layouts for the Dropship – Experience total domination with bonus layouts that integrate the new KT-424 Combat Dropship into the 5 largest layouts from the core game for added replay value.

That test was pretty raw. Some decisions cut deep, some I didnt care for at all. But im satisified with the end result.

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

My "Thankful it's over" post is done. Editing it tonight, posting tomorrow. Will there be more last-minute entries? Will Pixie be merciful to Twilight Princess? Will Zetta add words to his entry? Why is bear driving? Who run Bartertown? Stay Tuned!

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?

Just 1200 words left to go on my essays. Do I deserve a day off to play Just Cause 3 once I'm done? Yes.

Elite: Dangerous has some glaring issues, and can occasionally feel kinda bare bones, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite games in recent memory. Ships are fun to fly, trading is rewarding, and the sound design is absolutely brilliant.

Well, Destructoid. I did it. I jumped ahead.
