Starhawk Limited Edition Revealed
As the PlayStation 3′s first premier multiplayer shooter, Warhawk built up a dedicated fanbase that fell in love with its bombastic action and tight controls. Years later, developer Lightbox Interactive is bringing large-scale warfare back to the PS3 with a decidedly science fiction twist. Starhawk pits large teams against one another in a variety of game types on futuristic and planetary battlegrounds. The game promises to revolutionize third-person-shooters with a large emphasis on RTS elements like base construction and resource gathering. Starhawk is on track for a May 8, 2012 release, but fans who pre-order at GameStop will receive an automatic upgrade to the “Limited Edition”, which includes $20 of bonus content for free. The official PlayStation Blog has detailed the contents, which include:
- Maw of Despair Outcast Pack: Includes the Maw of Despair Co-op Map and Shade Warrior MP Skin
This challenging co-op mission takes place deep beneath the planet’s surface in a particularly dangerous Rift mine. The Maw of Despair is home to the oldest Outcast tribe, the Shade Warriors. The heart of each Shade Warrior blazes with pure Rift energy, granting them extra toughness and combat ability. The firefights you’ll encounter in the Maw of Despair co-op mission will push your shooting skills to the edge!
- Echo Scrapyard Rifter Pack: Includes the Scrapyard Homeworld and Huxley Ardin MP Skin
An exclusive player Homeworld, the Echo Scrapyard features Huxley’s mechanics shop and junkyard — known throughout the Frontier as the best place in the Frontier for Rifters to get spare parts for their Razorbacks and Sidewinders.
