Starhawk proved to be an impressive multiplayer experience this year at E3 2011, and as we inch closer to the release date for the space bound shooter the promised beta for the game is about to begin. The first round of beta invites will be heading out from LightBox Interactive as they begin to put the finishing touches on the multiplayer side of things.
Keep a lookout for emails from the developer as the first round of tests will be invite only, but as the beta progresses it will open to more and more people. If you get an early invite, you’ll get access to the Capture the Flag style gamemode, with others to comes as the beta progresses.
This is not for users that picked up Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, those codes won’t begin getting access until 2012. This private beta is for those loyal Warhawk fans in on the action early to get feedback from the people that actually play the game.
“We’re going to be starting the Private Beta in November and we’ll be sending a bunch of our Warhawk players (European players too!!) special email invites with Starhawk Private Beta keys. We’re going to be letting players into the Private Beta in waves so we can manage the server load, watch the game balance analytics, etc. The order in which players are granted access is a dark art known only to Sith-IT-Managers and Gywn, Lord of Cinder. But, suffice it to say it’s a mix of your rank/level in Warhawk, your involvement in the Warhawk community, and a few other magical parameters.
So keep checking your email like a Hawk!” – Dylan Jobe, President of Lightbox Interactive
