Do you know what the absolute best advert for the newly invigorated PSN will be? Fantastic online multiplayer games that are quite simply the most fun you can have online without a webcam and a bottle of baby oil. Some would say that, for the PlayStation 3, that ethos is still led by one game: Warhawk.
So it’s not surprising that anticipation is extremely high for its sequel (which we, and almost everyone except those involved with it, are calling Starhawk). Warhawk’s excellent multiplayer mayhem, adept balancing and hard-to-beat joyfulness but with a space-based twist? Sounds ideal to me. The added single player mode we’ve heard rumoured and the extra features that are possible with a full Blu-ray release are the icing on a particularly enticing cake.
Put simply: we can’t wait.
So, it’s with much excitement that we saw a tweet from Mr Dylan Jobe this morning:
The wait is over next Friday… #DylanLightsTheFuse
Which lines up nicely with some other hinting and excitement building we’ve been hearing via other channels.
Jobe has often said previously that he is not a fan of the overly long hype building that many games are given. He seems to prefer to announce and show off a game when it’s much closer to completion. Hopefully this bodes extremely well for the still rather sparse tail end of 2011 (in comparison to the jam-packed start to the year).
