Jetpacks Soaring Into Warhawk
We have already told you about Trophies and custom in-game music arriving with the v1.5 patch for Warhawk, but there seems to be one additional intriguing detail...
The patch will also bring something else: jetpacks! The news first came when the list of 57 Trophies popped up at GameFAQs and three of those Trophies were Jetpack-related (Aerial Ballet, Are You Aim-Botting? and That was Some Bug). Now, due to the very unofficial source, we couldn't possibly confirm this as fact, but Kotaku went ahead and contacted SCEA about the subject. As it turns out, SCEA did confirm that the list of 57 Trophies is accurate, which must mean the jetpacks are inevitable. Incognito has been working since Day 1 to make Warhawk a deeper, more diverse, and more engaging experience, so perhaps it's no surprise to hear about this particular addition. On the other hand, this presents us with a whole slew of new questions- can we shoot jetpackers out of the air while in a plane? Can those using a jetpack shoot at planes? How far or high how can you go? Oh, we've got questions, but we assume we'll get answers before too long.
Remember, the v1.5 patch is scheduled to become available on August 27, and that's only a few short weeks away. For many players, Warhawk is suddenly going to boast a very interesting new option during combat.
