Who loves Mechs? Everybody with a brain loves mechs! And thanks to the arrival of Hawken on Xbox One, we can all now jump into one and wreak havoc upon enemies and the environment in which we find ourselves, and we can do it free of charge too!

Hawken is a free to play title. Such games are few and far between on Xbox One but are becoming more regular of late, following recent releases of DC Universe Online and All Points Bulletin (from the same developers as Hawken, Reloaded Games), and with Roblox being made available in Europe too. Of course with it being a free to play title, the game has a number of ways to improve your game experience which require micro-transactions. The games industry is a business afterall, these devs need to make money.

Hawken could be just what you need, at least to bridge the gap of mech-fueled madness until the release of Titanfall 2 on October 28th. Here’s how the developers themselves describe Hawken;

Pilot hulking death machines and use massive weaponry to destroy your foes in fast-paced FPS gameplay. HAWKEN is a multiplayer first person shooter that places you inside a mechanized war machine on the battlefield of a dystopian world. With tactical, fast-paced gameplay in customizable and upgradable mechs across multiple competitive modes, HAWKEN is explosively fun. Features 26 mechs, 9 environments and 6 game modes including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Missile Assault, Siege, Coop Bot Destruction, and Coop vs AI Team Deathmatch modes.

Xbox Sector’s very own Dan Webb got to grips with the title on it’s release last week, and here’s how he faired… let’s just say he had a little difficulty figuring out who was and who wasn’t on his team…
