Hawken, the free-to-play (F2P) mech shooter from Adhesive Games is set to go the live-action route but not as a movie, but as a web series. It will be a joint collaboration between Warner Premier and DJ2 Entertainment and they describe it as a mix between “Romeo & Juliet” and “District 9.”
The actual plit is detail as two pilots from rival factions duking it out on a planet riddled with a nano virus…as with most cases, the virus and whatnot is more than it seems.
The announcement trailer can be seen below.
Hawken’s live-action web series will launch online in 2013, while the game itself is set for release later this year.
