NYCC 2012 – Archaia and Hawken

Archaia Entertainment and Meteor Entertainment announced their plans to promote the upcoming Hawken video game and prequel graphic novel at New York Comic Con.

At the Archaia booth, #1520, Meteor Entertainment and Adhesive Games will set up a playable, multiplayer demo of Hawken, a first-person mech shooter that is catching a lot of buzz as one of the most anticipated, free-to-play titles coming to PC. Attendees will get to pilot their mech to collect energy, protect their base, and take out their enemies in this fast-paced game.

Fans can also meet Adhesive Co-founder and Creative Director Khang Le as he signs free, limited-edition Hawken autograph cards, the fourth in a series of four. You can check at the Archaia booth for a signing schedule.

Le will also be demoing in the Wacom/Epson booth #1765 on Thursday and Friday from 5-6pm.

In addition, famed rock poster artist Justin Hampton will have an exclusive silk-screen Hawken poster for sale in Artists Alley at booth DD6 for $40 each. Hampton’s poster is the first piece of art available to the public as part of the transmedia approach for Hawken.

Two, separate panels at New York Comic Con will further the Hawken experience. “Meteor Entertainment Presents Hawken” panel will take place on Friday, Oct. 12 from 6:45-7:45pm in room 1A07. Attendees will receive closed beta access for Hawken and get to take a walk through the game and hear about the various transmedia components for the game from Khang Le and other panel participants. And at the “Archaia Presents: Transmedia in Graphic Novel Publishing” panel—taking place Saturday, October 13 from 6:30-7:30pm in Room 1A06— attendees will hear from Khang Le and Archaia Publisher Mike Kennedy the latest developments on the Hawken: Genesis graphic novel, an original story Archaia will publish in March 2013 that will delve into the world of the game and enhance the user’s experience. Never-before seen pages from the book will be presented for the first time for fans, so this is your opportunity to get a glimpse of the work in progress!
