If for some reason you’ve been living under a rock for the past year and haven’t heard of Hawken, then you’ve been missing out on one of the best free to play games to ever come out of the incubator. HAWKEN is a multiplayer mech combat game which features some of the most frantic action in the multiplayer arena. It’s developed by indie developer Adhesive Games who has done a stupendous job so far. And despite being a indie game, HAWKEN boasts visuals that put most AAA releases of today to shame. It’s currently in Open Beta and if you’re even remotely interested in the notions of giant robots beating the scrap out of each other, then you need to look it up.
