Nice...

Some questions Answered...

Does Starhawk have two flight modes?

YES. Initially we wanted to have Starhawk use only a single flight mode so that all players were unified. We worked a lot on this but ultimately decided that the needs of a newbie player and the needs of a hardcore Warhawk fan were just too far apart and we weren’t willing to make the compromises needed to jam everyone into a single flight mode. So…Starhawk has two flight modes and both are great! The default mode is very simple and great for new to mid-level players (and yes, reverse aiming issues have been fixed). It’s a re-vamped version of our “arcade mode” (but much better), thanks in part to a lot of play testing on it. The advanced mode is for players that want even more control while flying around in the Hawk. It’s just like Warhawk’s “pro mode” flight mode.

Server list or matchmaking?

In Starhawk you have both. Matchmaking is good for casual players that just want to be put into a game quickly, or for when we need to enforce that players are not “cheating” or stat padding or whatever you want to call it. It lets the Starhawk servers control which players get put into which games. That said, our fans LOVE it so we let you browse the custom “non-official” games through a server list. This gives you the best of both worlds.

Is Starhawk’s character camera new?

YES. We got a lot of questions from people that noticed from the video that there was a tight over-the-shoulder (OTS) camera in some of the shots. We still have a normal camera that is further away from the character, although it is a bit closer than what we had in Warhawk. However, this new OTS aiming mode is enabled when you zoom in with your weapon. It gives you a combat choice—you can do your normal run-and-gun at some cost of accuracy or you can go OTS for more accuracy, although you’ll be a bit slower.
\
Does Starhawk still use weapon pickups?

Hell yes! I was actually surprised that people were worried about this. It was interesting to see the Tweets from people who were scared that we might be going to a class-based load out approach. No! We still have pickups. And getting a weapon is not limited by rank. That kind of thing just doesn’t work for our type of gameplay. In fact, weapon pickups are an important part of Build & Battle. For example, If you want your team to have “snipers,” you can build lookout towers which include the sniper rifle pickup. Or, if you want some heavy weapons, you can build a supply bunker to get a rocket launcher and a shotgun. Now of course we are still in the process of tuning the game so things are always bound to change, but this should give you a good idea of where we’re headed.

Are there space environments?

100% YES. The outer space environment set that the art team here at LightBox Interactive has put together is really awesome. Super fun to play on and looks great. Some of the elements are still being worked on and we don’t want to show it untill we’re 100% happy with it. But since sooo many of you guys asked, Sony was okay with me at least telling you that Starhawk was not just about terrain battles. :-)

There are a ton of other questions that you sent me and I will answer them as soon as I can, but for now, I wanted to get a little bit more info out to you all! Hopefully I’ll get to see some of you at E3 if you swing by to get your hands on Starhawk! Keep your eyes on the PlayStation.Blog and www.starhawkthegame.com for more updates, and if you’re interested in seeing behind the production curtain a bit, I often post behind the scenes pics of us making Starhawk on my Twitter account @dylanjobe, so check it out!

Okay, that’s really it for right now. Maybe I’ll include a puzzle with my next blog post—I promise it will be more challenging than the stuff I posted for Warhawk :-P

Normal Flight without Reverse lock on.... Sounds kinda weak against pro when it comes to offence , unless they have other features that might help...

Looks like I better master PRO FLIGHT Smile

I don't like the way the new camera is placed. Instead of looking directly over the shoulder it is now on an angle. Looks shit.

Normal is just to Powerful....

I fly Pro now and then when I get bored, but outnumbered (And thats usually alot these days) Normal has its advantages.

Dylan is great. Good to see he's taking care of what people want. What he is promising sounds great.

Glad there is 2 flight modes. As I am a NF pilot it is annoying that they have done away with backward locks, but will see. I may have to make the switch to pro now, I thought it was pretty even in warhawk between the 2 modes and I can see pro being too powerful in starhawk left unchecked. Disappointing.

This is sounding great. The core seems like warhawk with new and improved features. This is looking to be a great game for 2012.

As Dylan said, NF was meant for Rookie - Medium level pilots, it was always the intention that if you put in the work, pro flight is going to be more effective for expert pilots.

Should train up pro ryno, like I told you and azza aaaaaaages ago hahahaha
That server was fun.

+ Dylan Jobe on May 23rd, 2011 at 3:36 pm said:

The Hawk in Starhawk has 2 modes: Air-based Flight mode and Ground-based Mech mode. We opted for the Mech mode over the Hover mode for a variety of reasons. Balance being one of the biggest.

In Warhawk, the Warhawk aircraft was very powerful and its hover mode was really hard to defend against if you were on the ground. The Hawk’s mech mode looks to bring a bit more balance to the combat against ground units — plus the mech is just cool ;-)

Fuck yes

With hover going I hope there is greater variable speed control.

With the triggers it was fairly easy to control speed.

I too am glad hover is gone, it ruined dogfights.

Question - does the statement that Starhawk will have a 'public beta' mean that it is a beta that would be available to everyone?? or does public beta just mean selected members of the 'public' will get access to the beta?
