Over at the official US PlayStation blog, Warhawk
director Dylan Jobe announced
that Sony's online title has gone gold and will be hitting the PlayStation Network
and retail shelves on August 28th.
Jobe also put an end to speculation
regarding the price, stating that the digital download for Warhawk
will be priced at $39.99, while the boxed copy will retail for the now standard $59.99.
Seeing as how this is a multiplayer only title with a digital download, we would have preferred to see that price a bit lower, but still, this is a much better scenario than say, the Shadowrun
debacle. The retail version of Warhawk
is being thought of as a premium
version of the title, featuring expanded video content as well as a Bluetooth headset. Not bad for an extra twenty bucks.
For those wondering about the fabulously pictured Warhawk
pin, sorry, it's for Beta players only. The top ranked Beta players, to be exact.
