Hawken will support Oculus Rift at launch

Free-to-play mech shooter gets confirmed VR support

The still-in-development Oculus Rift virtual reality headset has gained the support of another upcoming game, Hawken.


Hawken is the awesome-looking free-to-play mech shooter from developer Adhesive Games and publisher Meteor Entertainment, who have teamed up with Oculus to provide full support for the VR headset at launch on December 12.

The headset maker confirmed the news with the below video, showing gameplay of the first-person in-mech view, which should work spectacularly with the motion-tracking VR headset.

Doom 3: BFG Edition will be the first game to support the in-development product, a prototype of which you can purchase now via its Kickstarter page.
