In advance of the game's December 12th launch, Hawken devs Adhesive Games are running a series of closed beta sessions, the first of which is due at the end of the month. You can
sign up here
for a chance to take part in the first event running October 26th to the 29th. Doing so will let you choose your in-game callsign ahead of the robo-battling game's release. I'm going with 'Iceman', unless it's already been nabbed by someone else.
Two new pieces of machinery have also been revealed: a mech capable of transforming into a turret (doesn't sound particularly helpful), plus a Repair Torch weapon that can patch up your fellow robots. If you want to know what one of those looks like, we've included a sexy, military grey pinup below.
If you're not excited about the free-to-play mech-battling game, then you haven't been paying close enough attention. Kickstart your education by reading our recent
