Warhawk v1.4 Update Detailed, Dated


While most of the gaming world is focused on all the hot new games at E3 this week, Warhawk front man Dylan Jobe popped in over on the PlayStation blog today to dish some dirt on the plans for the game’s 1.4 update. For starters, patch v1.4 has a date: July 16th at 3 AM PST. At that time, Warhawk gamers will be treated to two all-new gameplay modes — Hero and Collection — a new Quick-Join feature, enhancements to the mini-map to make objective points easier to pinpoint, tweaks to the awards system to make ranking up and earning certain medals and badges a bit easier, and a few other minor updates.

The two new gameplay modes are clearly the standouts here. In Hero, one member from each team will be randomly designated as their team’s “Epic Hero” and be granted increased damage dealing and resistance. Teams score by killing the opposing team’s Hero or by having their Hero kill the other team’s standard soldiers. Collection, on the other hand, is essentially a large-scale Capture the Flag battle. In a Collection match, four energy cores are spread throughout the map and two teams battle to capture these cores and return them to their reactor for points. Oh yeah, both sound like a blast to me!

All this new content will be available to all Warhawk players completely free of charge. And best of all, now that update 1.4 is being finalized, update 1.5 and trophy support is one step closer to fruition! Warhawk just keeps getting better and better.
