Update on What's Coming to HAWKEN!


Update on What's Coming to HAWKEN!

 

Attention pilots!
 
February is almost over and Team HAWKEN has been hard at work each day of it developing its biggest game update yet! We're very excited to announce that this patch is slated to include not only a new mech with new weapons, a new chassis, and a new ability, but will also introduce a never-before-seen, still-in-development map, and reintroduce the server browser along with plenty of balance tweaks, new cosmetics, and two new ways to let's just say "express" yourself to your allies and enemies in-game. Like we said, this is a big one!
 
We had originally aimed for this puppy to drop next week on February 26, but with so much new being added, the team wanted to put more test hours into this gigantic patch and release it in early March, about two weeks away. We're all beyond eager to see this patch live but we want to make sure it's as solid as possible meaning a little more time on tumble dry with our QA testers. After all, this is our first new map since the start of Open Beta!
 
The team sincerely appreciates your patience and cannot wait to unleash the impending awesome and let this bad boy off its chain. See you on the battlefield, pilots!

Why not split the mech, cosmetics, and browser from the map and balance tweaks, and release two patches?

We explored that option and determined it'd be a prohibitive amount of work to break content out of the upcoming build and turn it into two releases.

Great work guys. Thank you. Have to wait 2 more weeks for new mech D:
The server browser alone will make it worth the wait.

Because it's not a case of working on one or the other? Those tasks are all being handled by separate teams, and at this stage, the QA testing is the delay, do do you really want half your patch to be basically not tested?

Edit: I had this thread open in a tab for a little while before responding. Ninja'd by Scapes who could've taken the time to print it in the newspaper and still beat me.
Thank you for giving me enough time to write my term paper.

NOW SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.
i`m dissapoint

Is it cause they didn't address siege? I am all sorts of happy we are getting a new map, FINALLY!
You jerks. Looks like you're going to release this on the weekend my boyfriend is visiting. :P
*Looks at picture*

I see what your saying now.

No advanced options yet :o
Looks like the best patch yet! Will we be getting a more specific update log before it's released?
Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh Nice :wub: !!!
Please, please, please consider splitting this into two separate patches!!!
Will we still get patch notes tomorrow? XD
YES!!! New map time.
I would've been satisfied with a new mech OR a new map OR server browsing. Hell, I'm already satisfied.

Thanks for all the hard work, Adhesive/Meteor! :D
Good job, I can't wait for this to hit. :D
Thanks for the update! Great to see the server browser coming back, looking forward to the new map as well.

Any further details on the new patch?

Cheers,

The new map is for Missile and Siege modes ?
The "Enemy Sighted marker" obscuring half the screen will be removed ?
Hud will be cleared of unnecessary information, visually doubling icons? on / off option?

As much as im disappointing in waiting im fine waiting for some more thorough testing to be done. Keep up the good work and cant wait to download it.
what's wrong with waiting again? I haven't played in a couple weeks and a couple more won't hurt... looking forward to some worthwhile new content :)
