Forums - Sony Discussion - Starhawk Beta Update: 32 Players, Tanks, Jetbikes!!!

Hey Starhawkers! Finally, the day has come. We’re launching our Beta Update 1.3 today! We’re really happy with this new content and we hope you like it, too. Check out this video to see what I’m talking about…

Since our Starhawk Beta launched in November, we’ve collected soooo much great info. The bugs found would never been nailed down without your efforts and we are confident we’ll be giving you one of the best online experiences on PS3 with the final version of the game. Many balance and feature changes were made as a direct result of player testing. Please accept a sincere “THANK YOU!” from our team.

We have one final big step to make before release. Update 1.3 includes a bunch of new features and fixes including:

32 Player Map: Planet Dust
If you thought 8 vs 8 was fun, things just got EPIC!

Sidewinder Jetbike
This vehicle is all about speed, speed, and more speed. As it’s a very hard target to hit, use the Sidewinder for quick hit and run attacks, fast road kills, or team up with others to SWARM the enemy base.
Did we mention it jumps, too?

Ox Heavy Tank
Say hello to our little friend. What the Ox lacks in speed, it makes up for in pure brawn and firepower. You can destroy enemy walls and structures via long range bombardments, assault mechs with explosive shells, and survive barrages while comfortable nestled in its heavily armored shell.

If you’ve been holding off joining the Beta then the time is now to jump in. The Starhawk Beta ends on March 27th in preparation for our May 8th release. Time is short, so find out what you’ve been missing — the Starhawk Beta is available for FREE on the PlayStation Network right now.

Go get it while you can!

I played the beta but didn't like it that much. I wish they would have kept the original warhawk playstyle. it didn't feel right.

EDIT: ill prolly still get it tho



Man it's awesomeness. Just downloaded the update, great additions to the stable.

I got the update yesterday and OH MY FUCKING GOD.

I've put like 15 hours onto it. The bikes are FUCKING ACE! Tanks are deadly if u can get it into enemy base! DOG FIGHTS IN DUST WITH 32 PLAYERS IS A DREAM COME TRUE!

I'm in a clan called the rebel alliance (has like 100+ members). Its a gathering of killzone 2-3, uncharted 3, starhawk and warhawk players.

I am inlove with this game far more than pre-1.30. All i wish is:
Ability for team to build more than 32 bldngs
And
Allow matches up to 1-2 hours!!

Its SO epic! The sound is VASTLY improved, soundtrack sends shivers through my spine, UI and EVERYTHING runs soo much smoother! Colours improved, FPS IMPROVED! Space map got a lil overhaul! Dust is fucking Tatooine and im Darth maul on my speeder bike LOL.

Driving with the flag having jets fight above u to protect or kill you is wicked!!

Flying and CLEARLY seeing what enemies are in air gives u a : "HERE THEY COME!!" Feel which is just phenomenal.

Fucking good job lightbox!
