Gaikai to offer Hawken prior to its full launch

0

This probably goes without saying, but, December isn't exactly right around the corner. As such, the wait for Hawken has and continues to be a test of my patience. Cloud gaming service Gaikai has reached an agreement with Meteor Entertainment to offer the mech game before its official 12/12/12 launch.

As you are probably aware by now, Hawken will be free to play, so this seems like a smart partnership. We get to play a title we're hyped for early at not cost to us, and Gaikai gets a bunch of new users while, presumably, selling them on the concept of cloud-based gaming as a viable alternative.

I'd also like to point out that the official website for Hawken has a release-day countdown. Only 210 days to go, people! This almost feels like satire.
