So Incognito and Sony have finally confirmed the existence of the third expansion pack and have revealed the fairly well rumored details.
As well as several tweaks and updates they are including a new map and jet packs… oh yes you read correctly… ummmmm jet packs…
The addition of jet packs is a real boon to this already fun title. Allowing you to traverse structures and fallen ships it adds a real game changing element.
To quote Dylan Jobe the game director at Icognito:-
In total there are 10 new layouts for Tau Crater and since the jetpack is a massive, game-changing addition to Warhawk, we included a crap-ton of bonus layouts for the original game too — there are 30 bonus layouts that add jetpacks into the Warhawk’s original content.
There is an entirely new level – Tau Crater! It’s a smoky, forested island that features lots of vertical elements to give players tons of cools places to use the jetpack; huge trees that you can fly up into and land on their branches, an enormous recovery crane with lots of trusses and platforms to fly around, and of course, the name sake, a truly gargantuan capital ship wreckage smashed into the ground forming, you guessed it, Tau Crater.
This prospect is a real meaty feature for anyone into the Warhawk universe, so one final quote from Dylan :-
So here are some of the details: Operation: Fallen Star is being released on August 28th worldwide and is $7.99 in the Playstation Store. We also worked with SONY to get a new bundle pack ready too. The new Booster Combo Pack includes all 3 of the expansions for only $15.99. That’s like getting all 3 Booster-Packs for the price of only 2!!! Quick — deploy the wacky waiving inflatable arm-flailing tube men!!!
As a reminder, keep you eyes out for our FREE v1.5 Update that goes LIVE on August 27th
