Applications for the Hawken closed beta are now being taken.
Hawken, in case you've somehow managed to miss it, is a fast-paced mech combat game being developed by a small indie studio called Adhesive Games. Very little has been heard about it in recent months but in mid-January the team released a handful of new screens with the promise of "significant news" to come and today the word went out that applications for the closed beta are now being taken.
Putting your name in the hat is as simple as going to playhawken.com and giving them your email address. Given the nature of closed betas, there are no guarantees when, or even if, you'll get in, but any chance is better than none at all. And if you can convince three friends to sign up, you'll be able to reserve your callsign before things get hot.
Hawken will be released as a free-to-play game and is currently scheduled to drop on December 12. To learn more about the game, head over to hawkengame.com.
