MMO Elements Featured In Starhawk?
Ex Incognito members have formed their own studio, Lightbox Interactive, and although it has never been made official, everyone assumes they're working on the successor to Warhawk.
Apparently, it's called Starhawk and although we still don't have any confirmed gameplay details, it seems it may feature some MMO elements. Now, this probably shouldn't come as any surprise, considering Warhawk is technically an MMO. Well...if not a true "MMO," it only features online multiplayer. However, we've also heard that Starhawk will actually present players with a separate single-player campaign, and that's what we want to hear more about. In the meantime, though, the pseudo-sequel set in space just might boast even bigger MMO elements; for instance, a living, breathing, continuous world not separated by maps with player limitations. That's just an assumption but as noted by PlayStation LifeStyle, Lightbox has been recruiting MMO experts to help with their project. They now have James Mestemaker, who worked for both BioWare Austin and NCSoft on Star Wars: The Old Republic and Tabula Rasa, and Steven Wartofsky, who also worked for the same companies as a "producer of internal and 3rd-party MMOs." What we're hoping is that a big set of details and info for Starhawk will come down the pike very soon.
It's easy to forget just how good Warhawk was (and still is), so don't gloss over Starhawk when it finally receives an official announcement.
