Hawken is a free-to-play multiplayer mech combat game originally developed by Adhesive Games and published by Meteor Games. The game focuses on creating an intense battle experience that captures the feel of piloting a mech and includes fast-paced strategic action. The game features five modes: team deathmatch, free-for-all, "Co-op Defense","Siege", and Missile Defense. It currently follows the freemium model of game monetization with in-game purchases as the source of revenue. It was released on December 12, 2012 for PC. After Hawken's publisher, Meteor Entertainment, closed its doors on March 2015, the game was acquired by Reloaded Games and is now being developed and published by them.
