The Starhawk Universe is set in the distant future out in the far reaches of Space where two factions a colony of humans known as the Rifters, and the Outcast, a ruthless species of humans mutated into psychotic monsters by the Rift Energy, a dangerous resource both factions are battling over. Starhawk puts the player in the boots of Emmett Graves a hired gunslinger ostracised from society due to his own exposure to Rift Energy, leaving him partially mutated, but still able to retain his humanity. Taking on the powerful role of Graves the player will be drawn back to his home settlement of White Sands on the planet Dust to face a mysterious outlaw and his band of Outcast warriors to only find out that this assignment may mean more to him than he could ever imagine. He will soon find out that his family is involved in the clash between the Outcast and the Rifters and therefore must decide between those close to him and those he swore to protect.

Starhawk’s features a host of weaponry and a multitude of vehicles for fast paced action combat combined with intense vehicular warfare on both land and air. The game’s innovative Build & Battle system lets players alter the on screen action by giving them the ability to change the dynamic of the battlefield instantly with a selection of base structures at their disposal, all while in the midst of the fight. By the touch of a button players can deploy a number of buildings, vehicles, or fire power to strategically complete mission objectives and defeat enemies. Through the sophisticated architecture of the PS3 system, the instantaneous customisation that Build & Battle provides, as well as this breadth of gameplay that spans multiple modes is made possible.

Utilising state-of-the-art visual technologies, the development team has made every effort to give players the realistic feel of actually being on the battlegrounds with vibrant characters and environments, coupled with dynamic lighting effects. Starhawk also boasts a strong online mode where users can battle head-to-head in epic 32 player matches, up to four player online and offline co-operative play, and split-screen gameplay within multiplayer and co-op modes against an endless attack of enemies, in addition to a full-fledged single-player story mode with various missions set in a number of diverse interstellar environments.

Additionally, Starhawk employs a host of online community features that allows players to be always connected, all the time, including tournaments, leaderboards, and clan support with additional friends list and quick match options. Players can keep up to date with the community events calendar, ticker tape updates, and a Starhawk Android app that will allow users to keep track of friends, clan mates, and stats when not online.

Nice. Emmitt Smith as a digital hero.

Not sure I'm feeling the freelancer vibe over the more military squads of the first game. But once I get to blow stuff up, doubt I'll care.

AWWW YES!!!

My friend was soo pissed at me because I got the "Presidential Meritorious Conduct" only because he took the heat off of me while I went around capping zones. It is the only ribbon he never got :D

Starhawk: Who would have thought Americans would be the first to make an awesome robot/air combat MP game?

Just hearing that makes me remember those crazy dogfights I loved so much. Breaking max locks while leading the enemy on a tear across the sky, flirting with the stall limit and waiting for the perfect opportunity to lead them into my air mines.

We are. It's called "Starhawk" :D

Nothing beats holding down a zone by yourself with a healing drop. Hope to see dropship type vehicles and a much better mic support in Starhawk.

I'm just hoping the mechs don't weaken infantry combat too much. At least with plane vs soldier you could still survive, but these things look a lot more dangerous on the ground.

I also hope ground combat isnt nerfed. Love running around with a Soldier killing tanks and jeeps. Cant wait to see the whole squad back together.

I was tired last night, so I didn't make the connection but Build n' Battle reminds me of Battlezone 2 which was a hybrid tank combat/RTS/FPS.

I just hope this build a battle system is something every player can do, not just a team's decision. I would love to get points from killing shit then spend it on a mech at my leisure :D

This is the happiest I've been about a game since the day before Volition said "No Competitive Multiplayer in RFA." :lol:

From what I've read, it's a shared pool of money to spend on stuff that you or the team needs. There aren't any power-ups/weapons/vehicles placed on the maps, so you can either get that stuff from dead players or buy them yourself.

Here's the full episode of GT.TV if you want to see the everything they showed.

Needs more space and tanks.Where are the tanks?

More info:
  • Weapons lock on automatically,no need to hold down L1 button. Auto-lock on with hawks*,machine gun,and rocket launcher.You just need to keep your target in your site.Need clarification on hawks lock on.
  • Starting multi player you start barren.No vehicles or weapons. Each team gets a certain amount of rift to build a base,4x4 garage,turrets,gates and weapons bunker. So,team coordination is necessary.I can see people griefing this.Also,you can pick up weapons from dead allies or enemies.You can't go inside enemy weapons bunkers.Unless you follow them in.Building things around your spawn area cost less rift.
  • You hold R2 button to run.You don't run atomatically like in Warhawk.
  • You spawn by falling from the sky ala ODST.You can aim yourself to land on your enemies.You don't have much control over your pod.
  • No more hover mode for hawks.Straight to mech mode.
