LightBox Interactive has released two new gameplay videos for Starhawk as well as detailing some of the game’s upcoming features.
According to LightBox president Dylan Jobe, Starhawk will feature both matchmaking and server lists. This will provide players with the option to join a casual matchmaking game where LightBox can monitor people for cheating and stat padding or the option to join custom “non official” server lists.
As for the new camera mode, Jobe confirms the camera has been moved closed to the character than in Warhawk, moving in and out between two separate angles depending on if the player is running and gunning or using the over-the-shoulder (OTS) sights for better accuracy.
“This new OTS aiming mode is enabled when you zoom in with your weapon,” said Jobe via the PS Blog. “It gives you a combat choice—you can do your normal run-and-gun at some cost of accuracy or you can go OTS for more accuracy, although you’ll be a bit slower.”
Furthermore, Jobe confirmed space environments in Starhawk, stating that fans will have to wait for E3 before seeing some the maps.
