FFLogo2

Award-winning graphic novel publisher Archaia Entertainment and free-to-play video game publisher 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! Today marks the release of the first exclusive preview throughout comiXology's revolutionary digital comics platform available across 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 OGN establishes and explores the exciting world of Illal, the backdrop for the HAWKEN video game universe. Developed alongside Khang Le (Project Offset, Flight), 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!

“Adhesive Games and Meteor Entertainment have developed such a unique and enticing war-torn future,” said Wes Harris, Meteor’s Vice President, Transmedia Publishing. “This digital release is a great way to expand our transmedia partnership with Archaia through comiXology while providing great opportunities for our fans to get access to the closed beta of the game.”

“Exploring the origin of that war and the dynamic, powerful personalities that set the political drama in motion was as exciting to create as it is to read,” added Jack Cummins, President & COO of Archaia. “We’re thrilled to premiere this material in digital form through comiXology and can’t wait to release the full graphic novel for eager HAWKEN fans.”

The first exclusive comiXology digital preview, “Prelude to Ruin,” is written by Jeremy Barlow (Mass Effect, Star Wars) and illustrated by Francisco Ruiz Velasco (concept artist on The Hobbit, Pacific Rim, and Hellboy 2). It can be accessed at this link: http://cmxl.gy/HawkenGenesis-1.

HAWKEN is the award-winning, multiplayer, first-person-shooter (FPS) game for PC published by Meteor Entertainment. HAWKEN puts players in the pilot seat of a futuristic war machine. Going into open beta on 12.12.12 (December 12th), players can customize and upgrade their mechs from a wealth of accessories and styles. Players can then join their friends on the battlefield to rain destruction across HAWKEN’s beautiful and immersive landscapes. And most exciting of all, HAWKEN is FREE-TO-PLAY.
