News on the Starhawk beta looks set to roll out tomorrow, according to the offical Facebook page. Sony originally said that Warhawk players would be the first to get involved, and whilst it’s likely that those picking up Uncharted 3 in a couple of weeks won’t be far behind (with Naughty Dog’s adventure coming with a free Beta code) the publishers are sticking to their (machine) guns.
Starhawk builds on Warhawk, taking the battle to space!
This is a smart move – the last thing you want from a beta (although that word has lost pretty much all meaning in relation to videogames these days for me) is loads of people running around that don’t know how to play. Warhawk was, at its heart, a fairly hardcore shooter, so the devs will want the best of the best stress testing the mechanics. Starhawk naturally builds on the last game’s principles.
