Hawken Oculus Rift Support

The Kickstarter Page for Oculus Rift has word that Hawken will include support for this upcoming virtual reality headset when Adhesive Games' mech combat shooter launches in December. The Oculus Rift, Update video #6 discusses the news, as word is: "HAWKEN virtual reality aims to deliver a fast paced immersive mech shooter. HAWKEN virtual reality will be a killer showcase of what developers can do with the Oculus SDK and Unreal Engine."

Has their been any date or price thrown around for Oculus?

Not yet no. If you donate $300 to the kickstarter you get the development version of the headset, so maybe around there? Theoretically once mass production begins the costs should come down, but then again they also say the consumer model will have higher res screens.

Great seeing more games jump onboard with this.

Between this and Mechwarrior Online the genre seems to have gotten a much-needed boost in 2012-- now lets get oculus working with Mechwarrior too (even the old ones will be a blast once adaption has been done by the community) =)

Hawken would be cool if they made a 30+ mission single player campaign out of it. I'd pay for that.

I am hoping this thing will be good. Decided against a 120/240mhz monitor in hopes of having this instead.

No, but the sooner this "free-2-play" scheme comes to an end the better off we'll be, I'm still a fan of pay once and play whenever you want.

What an obnoxiously radical idea...

Oh wait

The free-2-play model is just such bullshit, all these developers give lip service to the games not being pay-2-win but in the end it's either grind, grind, grind or pay up!


Yea it really sucks how developers all want to make a living wage and shit, fuck those guys! Make me some games bitch! I don't care if you could make ten times as much money with your skill set doing something else! LIVE IN POVERTY LIKE A MAN!

So would I, but I also like my developers to continually develop the product, which the continual revenue stream allows without the restriction of being solely subscription based. League of Legends and World of Tanks both have decent and fair(particularly LoL) free to play models, and I enjoy playing them and occasionally paying for something from them, and both are under constant development, so situations like with most modern one time fee PC games where bugs stay forever and no new maps, modes, weapons, etc ever release because the developer moves on to make a different game to go in to debt to make a product and hope to recoup costs on purchase price alone don't occur.

LoL pretty much requires you to use the latest toons or else get rolled by them. Maybe it's changed since I played, but I doubt it.

WoT is really bad though. I am currently playing this and it takes a ridiculous amount of grinding to get anywhere, and the money they want to short that is FUCKING NUTS! Seriously those guys must have a Phd. in greed because I can't even imagine what the cost would be to buy everything available in that cheapass game AND maintain it assuming you still can play without your ass swallowing your chair after getting raped like that.

Tbh, I am not sure I`d want a game as fast as Hawken seems to look, that close to my eyes. Now, Mechwarrior Online, cause it is a tad slower might be cool. But a fast Quaker?

Agreed. They said the tracking is better compared to other headsets, but is it good enough for twitch gameplay?

Not to mention, it is all vapourwhere and untested by the Mass Market base. Just take a good look at all the VR Headsets that came before the Occulus, and all the promises not met by most of those Headsets.

The Occulus better deliver much better than RAGE did. lol

I'm liking the sound of this more and more. If only Mechwarrior Online added support too....
