Adhesive Games are hoping to make Hawken more appealing to competitive gamers than it currently is, saying that their current focus on getting up-and-meching as fast as possible needs to change.
“Up until now, our priorities have been focused on creating an experience that enables gamers of any skill level to start up Hawken and be having fun in the first five minutes,” said game designer Chris Vance.
“However, we are also committed to providing our competitive players with the experiences they desire as well. Plans are under-way to create an environment where our competitive players can experience Hawken in the ways they enjoy most.”
Also supporting this competitive system will be a clan system with clan-specific leaderboards and a Room System. Players will be able to create Rooms, invite players to them, and then get a dedicated server assigned to the Room as soon as they hit play.
