I got a code for the beta of this last week. I've downloaded it but not had chance to have a go yet. I think I might spend this evening with it to see what it's like. Anyone else on the beta?

So I spent a couple of hours with this the other night. I spent the first half an hour wondering what the hell was going on as I was just expecting a prettier Warhawk. As it turns out, that's not too far from the truth but there are a lot of changes, particularly the base building and the mech flying. I definitely need to give it a more thorough play. It's a good looking game but it felt a little bit unwieldy, possibly due to me not getting to grips with the controls quickly enough. That COD muscle memory is a hard thing to shake off.

My interest is definitely piqued though.

Public Beta begins today! Not sure when we get it in the UK... Just checked Playstation store and couldn't see it.

We didn't get any beta codes with Uncharted 3 at all did we ? I don't remember that at all for Europe but the US got them. Like the look of this, if anything it reminds me a lot of Section 8.

The public beta is only open for PS+ subscribers and private beta participants to begin with. Here's how it'll work as detailed on http://blog.eu.playstation.com/

[b]Who gets in and when?[/b]
As we move forward we’ll invite more and more players into the mix.

[list]
[*]January 18: All PlayStation Plus subscribers and all Private Beta participants (who haven’t erased their original Beta files)
[*]February 1st: UNCHARTED 3 guys, you will receive an email on how to access the beta. In order to get this email you’ll have had to redeemed your Online Network Pass found inside the boxed copy and made sure you’ve opted into receiving marketing emails.
[*]February 22: Everyone with a PlayStation Network account…in other words, everyone who wants in, gets in!

Where on earth is the option to opt in for marketing ? Need to take a look and try and find that option then.

Hmmm it's seems OK. A bit scrappy really. There isn't much team work going on which works against the concept.

This is out soon. Anyone know if it has an online pass as I want to know whether to scrap it from my Lovefilm list or not.

As with other Sony published titles, it does have an online pass. It's possible you'd still be able to play the co-op mode locally, but much like [i]Battlefield 3[/i] this is really about the multiplayer.

Seeing as the game's out this Friday I thought the thread deserved a bump. Whilst you'd be hard pressed to know the game existed — there wasn't so much as a place holder box in GAME earlier — I think people should be aware of its impending release even if Sony don't. As such here's the launch trailer:

Could do with some decent multiplayer footage, really, but I don't have any on hand; I was watching a good MLG stream last night, but there doesn't seem to be an archived version.

Speaking of multiplayer, it's been announced that [url="http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/05/08/starhawk-out-today-mlg-tournament-all-map-packs-free/"]all [i]Starhawk[/i] map packs are going to be free[/url]. The community for its predecessor ended up pretty fractured due to the DLC packs, so it's good to know that won't be an issue this time around.

For those interested, the cheapest pre-order I've seen is [url="http://www.hmv.com/starhawk"]HMV[/url], using the code "Z1STARHAWK" to knock £5 off the price; you also get a pre-order DLC pack. The game is due to launch on PSN this Friday if you'd prefer, but I'll be surprised if a digital copy won't set you back more than a disc.

Surprised people aren't more excited about it! Wasn't [i]that [/i]keen on the beta but I still really want it! Must exude patience and not pay full price, though.

Bah, Sony don't really seem to get the concept, most publishers offer a trial period before locking you out, that way people can try the MP for a while and maybe they'll like it and go on to buy a new copy.

This review is full of convincing hyperbole! Enough to be making me trade in a bunch of games on Amazon so I can day one it!

Shopto have taken my money for this, should have it by Thursday. Such a big fan of Warhawk, I hope this lives up to that.

You get the PSOne Warhawk for free when you redeem Starhawk's online pass.

This is already sold out on Amazon, and I have Amazon credit to order it with! NoooooOOOo! I assume Amazon didn't get very many copies in. A worrying and surprising lack of interest in this.
