Get Hawken and Access to a Closed Beta
Archaia Entertainment and Meteor Entertainment have teamed up with comiXology to debut four, free exclusive digital preview issues of Hawken: Genesis, a hardcover graphic novel based on the highly anticipated online video game, Hawken! This week marks the release of the first exclusive preview throughout comiXology’s digital comics platform available across the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and the Web. This exclusive digital preview includes a special access code for Hawken’s third closed beta event, happening November 20th – December 6th, 2012. Adhesive and Meteor have been so thankful for the fan feedback in the first two closed betas they couldn’t wait to extend the invite to the graphic novel audience.
The Hawken: Genesis full-length graphic novel arrives March 2013 and will be published by Archaia Entertainment. This hard-hitting original graphic novel establishes and explores the exciting world of Illal, the backdrop for the Hawken video game universe. Developed alongside Khang Le, the game’s Creative Director and lead conceptual designer of Adhesive Games, and featuring the talent of some of the industry’s top conceptual artists, comic illustrators, and painters, Hawken: Genesis is both a prequel and sourcebook to the epic warfare players will experience firsthand in the Hawken video game. Readers will get an amazing look at the vast post-apocalyptic mythology behind Hawken and follow the stories of the pivotal individuals that determine Illal’s fate!
The first exclusive comiXology digital preview, “Prelude to Ruin,” is written by Jeremy Barlow and illustrated by Francisco Ruiz Velasco. It can be accessed at this link: http://cmxl.gy/HawkenGenesis-1.
