Hawken is an upcoming first-person shooter that's different from every other game on this list. Instead of taking the role of a soldier or of a single man, players take on the role of a mech pilot who controls a giant, mechanized robot—not unlike the classic MechWarrior games from Activision. Unlike those relatively slow-paced games, Hawken will offer an intense, fast-paced experience while retaining the feeling of controlling a gigantic mech. Primarily developed for multiplayer, Hawken takes place in a dystopian human-colonized planet industrialized to the point of collapse, in which the hunt for resources has become a battle for survival. Four game modes are planned for release: team deathmatch, free-for-all deathmatch, "siege" and another yet-specified unique team game mode. Like the MechWarrior series, players will be able to control a mech from three mech classes; a heavy type, a light type, and a versatile all-rounder.
Platform: PC & Xbox 360.
