Courtesy of the folks at Meteor Entertainment and Adhesive Games, AusGamers has a stack of closed beta keys for their upcoming multiplayer mech combat game Hawken.
A free-to-play, online, multiplayer, mech-based first-person shooter, Hawken puts players in the pilot seat of a giant robotic war machine to rain fire upon their enemies across alien-like landscapes.
There are two kinds of mech pilots -- the quick and the dead. Combat in HAWKEN moves fast, no matter which mech you choose. Sharp instincts and a hair trigger will see you striding over the smoking wreckage of your enemies.Thrusters give your mech limited flight, adding another dimension to your battles, and in-depth customization of loadouts gives you the flexibility to fight your way.
To grab yourself a closed beta key, simply head over to our giveaway page
and you'll see the button to claim a unique key. Follow the instructions on the page to signup for the game and download the official client. The beta is scheduled to commence today, November 8th, but presumably not until US Pacific Time, which will be later on this evening for Australians.
However, beta codes can still currently be redeemed at the official site in preparation, and you should receive notification once testing goes live.
Hawken is due for release on December 12th 2012, and also promises to be one of the first games to support the hopeful Oculus Rift head-mounted display via patching after launch.
