The multiplayer mech game Hawken is now in open beta on PC, so hop over to PlayHawken.com so saddle up in your very own walking war machine.

The Hawken team at Adhesive Games promised that tons of things have been tweaked and improved since the closed beta started, and that the game is now better than ever. Not to mention the "new mechs, maps and modes" that have been added in this version.

Does Hawken hearken back to the good old mech shooters you remember? Give it a try and let us know.
