New PSBlog post with Broken Mirror info.

Don't worry, StrandedBrit. It's even bigger than the Omega Factory! At least some of the smaller layouts look cool, and the screens make me wonder what kind of crazy tank battles could take place on those raised highway sections.

But for $8, I dunno. No mention of an OD/BM discounted bundle, either. Boooo.

$8 seems pretty good to me. The APC seems to add a lot more gameplay options then the dropship did. Plus you can use them on more maps. I'd love a bundle deal though too.

Found this while reading through the PSBlog comment threads:

We have been discussing the idea of a dual-booster bundle…maybe at some discount for players that want to purchase both Omega Dawn and Broken Mirror at the same time. But nothing is finalized yet.


Come onnnnn!!!!

Just found this thread! Yeah, I posted the same comment as you metaly after I saw he was responding to comments..Not trying to take credit for your idea.;)

Sad part is that we should have posted it on the latest Dylan post, b/c he went all out responding to comments..Oh well, when the booster goes live he will post again. I think the package deal will be 13 bucks, that is just a guess.. Anyways, I think it would be worth it, but It really doesnt matter to me. I just want new game modes!

Ha... I don't really care about who gets credit for the idea. I'd just like to see it in the game. (Or at least hear what Dylan Jobe thinks about it.)

I'll definitely mention it again once there's another Warhawk post. He'll probably make one to announce the 1.3 patch on Wednesday.

I'm downloading it right now. I haven't played Warhawk in close to 2 months. I'm going to start back up again.

It definitely balances out ground troops a lot more..They can defend themselves against Tanks and Warhaks now

Woot!
Version 1.31 changes

The v1.31 patch is focused on fixing the team-switch mistake -- reinstating the Team-Switching, Team-Randomization, *and* Team-Roster-Balance server options.

In addition, we are removing the "unlimited score" option from the Game Options screen. This was an open invitation to padding as many of you correctly pointed out here on the forums.

A big thumbs down for removing the unlimited points option. I *hate* it when I am just getting into a game and it ends with like 20 minutes to go. If they think that by removing that option it will hurt the stat padders.... now they will have to play 3 or so games to get the points! I do not see how they thought this was a solution to the problem.

New preview of Operation Broken Mirror.

Not much but still cool to read stuff about it.

Although the Broken Mirror expansion won't be ready until April 17th (day of the PLAYSTATION Store relaunch), we had a chance to play it with fellow online journalists. Majed and myself took to the skies in split-screen action as we played a round of Capture the Flag and Zones on the brand new map: Vaporfield Glacier.

Ten variations are planned for the largest Warhawk map to date, and the two that we played today were both intelligently laid out, with multiple routes possible by foot, car and sky. Unlike in Omega Dawn, these variations never feel overwhelming large. The level was just the right size for our group of about a dozen players: it wasn't too small to feel barren (a problem in Omega Dawn), and wasn't too small to create a too-chaotic feel. Although the weather is supposed to change, we experienced clear skies in our play session. It might be an ice level, but don't expect to slip 'n slide.

The additions of the recent 1.3 patch were put to good use in our play time. The new weapons and shields certainly add a new level of depth to the game, without drastically changing the pace of the experience. It's clear that the Vaporfiled Glacier level is an excellent addition to the Warhawk universe, and we're certain the passionate Warhawk community will embrace the moderately priced ($8) download when it releases in two weeks.

Nice. I forgot that the booster was coming out so soon. I may actually get it because I've been playing more Warhawk lately. Although... I really should wait to hear if they've reached a decision about the booster pack bundle.

Bah, I still gotta get the first pack also, on top of needing to get GTAIV and Dual Shock 3

I'm going to get the Broken Mirror DL as soon as it hits the PS Store, and anyone is free to join me online in those games afterwards if you plan on buying it. ;)

Where is your new avatar from?

And I don't plan on getting the expansion(s) until they are in a pack or there are US PSN prepaid cards.

It's from Final Fantasy IV Advance... It's the Trap Door from inside the Sealed Cave in the Underworld. ;)

I thought it looked familiar, I played FFII on the SNES but never any of the re-releases/remakes.

They actually have the combo? :-o
That is awesome... Now this makes the price of the add-ons a bit easier to swallow. ;)
Hope to play you guys online soon. I'll be on in a couple of hours. :)

I haven't been in Warhawk for a long time, but that $12 is kind of tempting. I'm thinking about pulling it down and start playing a bit more, especially since I just recently purchased a BT headset for my phone.

That booster pack is looking awfully tempting. Now I just need to find some one to gamershare it with.
