When you think of Valentine Day, you think Giant Robot Warriors, right? Okay, okay, maybe not, but you certainly think about them when somebody brings up Chinese New years? Year of the Mech, yes?
Well, Hawken is ringing in these two holidays with a collection of cosmetic paint job upgrades for your mechanic death machine:
Hearts and Kisses!? Chinese Dragons!? Well, there’s also a pair of Dragon Boosters that are pretty snazzy if those paint jobs weren’t enough for you!
The Hearts of Fire promotion will go until February 19th, but you’ll be able to hang on to these style purchases as long as you get them now.
You know what, you put a 50 Cal. Machine gun and a Rocket launcher on something, and it doesn’t even matter what you paint it: It’s still a bad-ass death machine. What is more, this is a very good thing for Hawken to start doing. A free-to-play game needs a constant stream of new, cool looking things to keep the revenue flowing. Cosmetic upgrades are just about the perfect thing to offer Hawken players, and there’s certainly a wealth of potential ideas that can be used. It’s particularly nice to see a new type of booster, and I hope we see new Repair Drones, chassis, and limbs down the road.
