You should sign up for the Hawken beta right now photo



The wonderful-looking mech combat game Hawken will be launching December 12, 2012. (Perfect date for a marketing team, eh?) Since that's painfully far away, now is a good time to sign up for the beta. If you manage to get three friends to join in, you'll be allowed to reserve a gamertag.

I'm not sure if we ever covered the news about Hawken adopting the free-to-play model, but that's happening. For a multiplayer game -- even one that looks this promising -- having a huge base of active players is key, so the decision makes plenty of sense.
