Player Progression Update And More In Hawken Ascension Update
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Meteor Entertainment is set to mark the beginning of a new age in Hawken. Hawken Ascension delivers the biggest update of its kind to Hawken and brings about a vast array of changes, improvements and new features including new game modes, tutorials, improved matchmaking and alpha level Oculus Rift support… because lets face it, this would easily be one of the coolest Oculus Rift titles ever made!
In addition to that Hawken is fundamentally changing the way players level-up, gain XP and unlock upgrades for both their pilots and their Mechs. The sweeping, dramatic changes of the new “Player Progression” update will offer players more control and customization and provide more robust rewards for playing, including free mechs that unlock as the player progresses. Additional new features include Parties, and Clan support, revamped item and internal systems for mech customization, and a brand new map: last Eco.
“It’s been a lot of work and we’ve spent countless hours listening to our community working on these new features. We’re confident that Hawken fans will enjoy what we’re bringing them in the Ascension Update” says Jason Hughes, Senior Producer at Adhesive Games.
Chief Production Officer Bill Wagner of Meteor Entertainment adds “The Hawken: Ascension Update makes it easier than ever for new players to jump into the game, while adding more customization and game polish that our veteran players will appreciate. The update is a result of some of the fantastic feedback and support we’ve gotten from Hawken fans over the past several months.”
I’m a fan of Hawken myself and while I don’t get to play it often, I think it is great that the devs are still putting so much time and effort into improving the games infrastructure. If you want more information about the new update head over to PlayHawken for more details.
