Starhawk Comic-Con Story Trailer


LightBox Interactive and Sony Santa Monica seem to be on a mission of sorts to prove that their upcoming game, Starhawk, has a proper story behind it.

Just last week they introduced us to the Starhawk universe, and today they are going a step further by not only telling us about the story, but showing us too.

In a post on the PlayStation Blog, the President of LightBox Interactive (Dylan Jobe) stated:

“It’s a video that we captured from the game and shows how we tell story in the Starhawk. It’s done with a really great kind of animated “wanted” poster style, punctuated with Rift Energy. They’re Emmett’s memories. His Rift visions. They’re being produced by a studio here in Austin, Powerhouse Animation (they worked on the Penny Arcade Adventures animations). We’ve also got some really cool tech that seamlessly blends between the animations and the game (as you can see in the video). This really makes the solo experience smooth and buttery. We didn’t want any experiential speed bumps in the solo campaign. You can sit down, start the game and smoothly ?ow from mission to mission with no loading screens!”

Have a look at the trailer for yourself below, and be sure to let us know what you think.


Starhawk is set to be released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 sometime in 2012.
