Warhawk Omega Dawn: Exclusive video

Warhawk Omega Dawn: Exclusive video

The first add-on pack of Warhawk, named Omega Dawn, has been announced quite recently, but thanks to our friend TTP we already have a first video of a new map, and as you'll be able to see by yourself he certainly knows how to handle these ships!
Update: And here is the second video, showing the brand new and interesting dropship in action.
Update 2: 2 more videos added, one showing the dropship moving another vehicle around, and the other detailing the new map.

Omega Dawn: Dogfighting
Omega Dawn: Dropship first flight
Map exploration

Will you have footage of the dropship? That is the one thing that has really captured me about this expansion, it looks to add a whole heap of depth to the game.

doesnt the dropship allow you to pick up ground vehicles and transport them? if so why didnt we see that in action at, seems like he missed one of, if not THE main use of the vehicle?

Sweet, best PS3 game by far.
Uncharted says hi :p

This is the best MULTIPLAYER game by far, yes lol :) (actually Resistance online is pretty awesome).

Anyway this update is definitely worth the price it seems, awesome stuff.

That looks so awesome, can't wait for this. That dropship is made of win, really cool addition.

That sound is awesome. I bought and downloaded the game last night and I wasn't overly impressed with the Warhawks themselves but as I said earlier I think this will add a whole new level of play to the game.

Looks huge and epic for sure, the scale of it as awesome.

Although I get bored with Warhawk now and then, my sister is addicted to it as hell, she wont even allow me to play other games, I have to drag her away :P which is a good sign :D

Anyway, she is gonna be happy once she sees this map. I for one will play some matches of course, my console :P

Can't say I'm very impressed.. It looks like a QW/BF type of game to me (so nothing new or special), and the graphics are average at best imho (textures very blurred etc)..

you should play it. It's fantastic.

I consider it the UT of wierdo games.

Its nothing new? The entire game is using new stuff.

Funny running, sci-fi with WW2 twist (Resistance type). Air combat that goes epic everywhere, while the ground is crazy, and above all, its a huge THIRD-person shooter, not a FPS like most games these days.

Conclusion, its new :P

The graphics, for its scale for level and everything is happening, its great.
The complaining you should do about MP graphics are the Tom Clancy games such as GRAW and Rainbow Six Vegas.

When you play the game, you realise how much optimising must have gone into the game to keep at a consistent framerate, it just never slows down, even with the largest maps in any shooter and 32 players on a map.

looks really fun. this gets me tempted to go out and buy a PS3. kinda reminds me of the battlefield games.
Commented on 2007-12-07 21:55:33
Really wanna get this game.

This game is F-U-N and I am itching to get ahold of the boost.

Warhawks only become fun to fly after a few consecutive days of getting your BUTT blown out of the sky as soon as you take off. However when the push and pull of hover vs. fighter becomes an extension of your will, and you know where your chaff's at, and you get the hang of how much lead it takes to blow away a foot soldier with a free fired missle... then you will know what your PS3 is for at last.

The Dropship will be VERY DEADLY to nearby warhawks if pilots can get six people to pile in and man the swarm turrets. (50 or so missiles possibly locked on enemies at once)

I wonder how the sideways swing that seems to occur when firing the Dropship's main guns will affect the persuit and destruction of rapidly moving targets (read 4x4s with flags in them). Will the thing move on down the road while you are shooting or not?

Lastly, can the Tank shoot while it's being carried, and will it be possible to pick up a vehicle that is being operated by the other team?

Can't wait.
