Hawken to expand PVE-mode post release, team up to “shoot a giant beast”

Hawken

I don’t know about you, but teaming up with my friends to shoot the hell out of some AI controlled enemies is generally a good time — especially when the AI controlled enemy is a giant beast and we’re all sitting pretty in a bunch of mechs.

That’s the idea behind the planned future PVE mode of Hawken in any case, as revealed in an interview with the games’ creative director Khang Le. “We really want to expand once we have more time and budget and everything, to expand the PvE aspect of the game. I really love Lost Planet, you know, a bunch of players fighting together to destroy a giant beast. We’re really pushing for that because I think PvE is a lot of fun.”

Hawken will launch with a mode where players can shoot “dumb robots” to get used to their weaponry, but the proper PVE experience is planned for later.

Giant asteroid worm?

 

Hmm. He appears to be saying the you shoot giant beasts in Lost Planet, not they they are planning to in Hawken, right? Hope they don’t go that route – it seems to clash with the whole “feel” of the game that they have so far – ie, futuristic heavily industrialised environments etc. Giant animal boss-type enemies sounds more like Borderlands and a whole lot less like Hawken, IMHO.
