Starhawk: It’s Got A Story, Baby

From the depths of crunch-time, I emerge to share with you and all other “nodes” on the internets a wonderful tale. A tale of a game with hot multiplayer action yet, unbeknownst to most players, a fun-as-hell solo campaign as well. So peel back your eyelids and let the video below impregnate your brain! (Yes, your brain can get pregnant!)

The team has been working all hours here at LightBox Interactive to finish up Starhawk and we wanted to take a bit of time to share our new Story trailer. Most people out there really only know Starhawk for its online multiplayer, which totally kicks ass and was certainly our team’s focus. But the fact is that Starhawk has a very fun and unique solo campaign too… and NO, it’s not just an MP tutorial with bots!

Starhawk’s Build & Battle mechanics are fully supported by the universe we’ve created. The war between the Rifters and the Outcast. The conflict between Emmett and Logan. Even humanity’s rush for “blue gold” that spans the Frontier. The Starhawk solo campaign puts you right in the thick of the action and I can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on it when it drops here in Europe from May 9th!

So yeah, keep tabs on and the Blog for the latest Starhawk deets. Sorry I can’t write more — I gotta get back to work! Rock on!

Did you enjoy this?

Woah. Can’t wait to Play it. Have already pre-ordered. One question though, is it releasing on May 9 or 11?


Man this game is sooo underhyped on the internet. This game will be awesome!!


Will the EU also be getting the Limited Edition of the game? We’d like the chance to pre-order all of the goodies and DLC mentioned here If so, which stockists will have the Limited Edition?

I’d also like to know whether we’re going to get the Limited Edition of the game. From what I’ve heard of the game’s music so far, I’d love the soundtrack, and the box art of the Limited Edition is so badass!

I’m really looking forward to the story aspect of the game. I never really got into Warhawk online (only played maybe 100 games), sticking mainly to the fantastic local-multiplayer battles, and as this game is only supporting a maximum of two players, the story is what I’ll mainly be buying it for!

Thanks for making great games!


@Dylan Jobe – please comment on this or on Martok above, we are feeling very much short changed over here in Europe….

@Martok – despite many EU fans badgering the hell out of Sony and Lightbox, their is a deathly silence on whether there will be a Limited Edition here. I’ve been tweeting DJ and Sony Blog staff, posting on facebook and in forums official and unofficial, and sweeping through all the major (and some minor) online and retail sites…

Two results have finally come up (HMV and ShopTo) who both have a preorder bonus DLC pack, consisting of the same 2 maps, theme and soundtrack in the LE (i.e. NOT including PS1 Warhawk or PSPlus for one month). This is good enough for me, I’ve preordered at ShopTo.

I’m rarely so into tracking down info like this, but (a) it is Starhawk, I’ve been in the beta since day 1 and this game is so very special (b) the injustice of the info block has really got my back up. Everything else about Starhawk has been faultless, I really don’t get why this hurdle is here, a simple ‘no LE for EU’ or even ‘we are looking into it’ would be better than being so completely ignored over such an important matter.

Boy I am Grumpy. Google our clan Grumpy Old Men on Enjin…

Played the beta and enjoyed really enjoyed it. Looking forward to getting it.

As mentioned, in the UK, you get a pre-order bonus DLC with ShopTo –

And also with HMV –

No bonus yet if pre-order from Amazon, although their price is cheaper at the time of checking by a about £4.00.

This game has really been under-hyped, can’t understand why.

This Comment is for Jawad, I posted a comment on the store update but didn’t think you would see it. Did you know that the buzz lightyear ps one game is on the vita store in psp section?


I would like to buy the sp part if possible but don´t care for the MP part and not going to pay full price for half a game.

Preordered the other day. We get the soundtrack and a theme an two dlc packs for preordering according to the poster in my local store.

Seems kind of pointless writing anything on here when barely anyone ever responds.

That said i will be getting this game with or without a limited edition.

I hope we get more details soon like what’s in store for EU, different levels, amount of customisation options etc.

Time to start selling it no?

This trailer is awesome the campaign looks like its going to be Fun
ill probably will get 2 copies of it as long as they don’t lock out LAN with a online pass

Can’t wait for this, love the exclusives and Twisted Metal isn’t really my thing so I’m hungry for more :p
Looks like a big improvement on the first one, in which I hated the controlls, atleast this looks like it feels like a modern shooter, with over the shoulder view obviously. Hopefully the feel of the vehicles has been vastly improved too. The actual flying I did like in Warhawk so no comment there.

Its available to preorder on Gamestop now in EU (Atleast in Ireland it is) with the DLC bonus, but without the soundtrack and original Warhawk game for PS1.
