Hawken is the badass twitch based first-person shooter that sees you controlling giant mechs of destruction.The game offers a few different types of mechs ranging in different sizes and classes, and the collection of giant robots is about to grow by one with the addition of the new Raider class mech.
The Raider excels "at closing fast on targets and dealing damage in an up-close and personal manner." The mechs are in the medium class range in terms of armor and versatility, but also feature "excellent burst damage, and surprising speed."
Hawken is free-to-play right now, just head on over to the official site to download your copy. Be sure to check back on March 5 as we'll be revealing more on the new Raider mech.
And for those of you heading to Emerald City Comic-Con, Hawkenwill be at the show where you can take a photo with a life-sized Hawken mech, see their panel, attend the Hawken art show, and grab the official comic.
