The mech combat genre is one that's died off in recent years. Indie shooter Hawken is hoping to change that, and for a game being developed by a "a small independent game studio" looks absolutely amazing.
Set in what looks like an Asian megacity of the future, Hawken is a first-person, multiplayer mech combat game that will hopefully be released on 360, PS3 and PC (though it could be any combination of them!). It's planned as a downloadable game, and has been built using Epic's Unreal Engine.
There's no word on a release date. Which is a shame, because boy, this looks great. You can see some screenshots at the game's site below.
