Hawken, the highly anticipated mech-based first-person shooter, will be opening it's doors to its first closed beta tonight.

Hawken has been hyped for months and the beta will be the first chance to see the game in action in its closest to finished build. The beta will include a new map, Titan, a new mech progression demo, and a game-play mode known as Siege Mode.

Hawken has been getting a ton of press and all eyes will be on the game when it's released December 12. The game is free to play on PC with in-game upgrades available to purchase. There will be no single-player campaign in the game, multi-player only.

Closed beta signups are still open, let us know if you get a spot.
