Hey folks,

It’s that time again - time for another blogpost!

We have some special features and content in the next update for consoles, and we would like to share with you what we have worked on.

First, we’d like to announce that Microsoft and Sony’s testing has been completed for the next upcoming update. This allows us to launch the update when we’re absolutely ready to. We’re really excited to bring more content to Hawken to Xbox One, PS4, and early next year, PC.

We’ve been refactoring a lot of the backend systems of Hawken in preparation for some crazy stuff we would like to do in Content Update 3. While we’re not ready to talk about that stuff yet, we’re sure it’s going to rock your socks off.

Here’s some more of Content Update 2 you can expect in the meantime...

Leaderboards

Introducing Leaderboards! This is an entirely new system that we’ve made for Hawken in Content Update 2. The system is fairly simple: select a stat, and you will be able to see where you stack up against other players of that category. Initially, there will be a few categories but we will add more as time goes on.

The system is set up internally in a way that it supports clearing out this data at any point (Seasons, anyone?) and we hope to expand and add onto this system in multiple ways in the future.

Cosmetics

We’ve got a plethora of cosmetic options for your Mechs coming up. New camo options, cockpit designs, and pilot emblems are some of the many things we will be added. There might even be some surprises this holiday season…


For now, though, here are a few of the items we will be releasing:

Introducing the Hula Girl bobblehead (with wobbling action!), the World’s Best Pilot mug, and the plain ol’ assault rifle from before the Hawken Virus hit.

We’ve also got some cool looking cosmetic options for those who like to drink: A bottle of one of Illal’s finest microbrew and of course a Sentium Mug (there’s a Prosk one too, don’t worry, Prosk fans!).

There are even more cosmetics on the way after the launch of Content Update 2, and even...

Wait, what are these? Why can’t I move? What’s going on here?
